Going Solo: Interview with Debby Lee Jagerman

Debby has travelled up and down Europe, Vietnam and Alaska on her own, and she's visited Australia, New Zealand and Iceland with friends and family. Most recently, Debby circumnavigated the Baltic Sea for a little over two weeks, squeezing in visits to seven capital cities.

Debby now blogs about her travel experiences on Beth Whitman's Wanderlust and Lipstick, a site dedicated to encouraging solo women travellers.

I caught up with her to talk about her recent trip to the Baltics and her perspective on travelling solo.

Brooke Versus the World: Interview with Brooke

At the start of this year, Brooke and her boyfriend Brian had it all planned: a long-term round-the-world trip.

But when Brian was offered a too-good-to-resist job in New York, Brooke decided to head off on her own. She flew into Poland in March, made her way through the Ukraine, and is now in Kyrgyzstan learning Russian.

I caught up Brooke to learn more about her experiences in Eastern Europe and Central Asia as a solo traveller.

Paris. For many people, it is the quintessential travel destination. Quite simply, it is the place to go.

    • A Girl and Her Thumb

      The thumb. A very useful part of the anatomy, especially when you decide to head out into the world, hitchhike and use other modes of transportation. For Jo Magpie, it (both actually) have served her well in her travels – always heading east. She’s once again on the move. Yup, east.

    • Home and Away

      Naomi, David and their two sons are ‘on a slow roam around the world’. Though both successful, David didn’t want his children to view him as the dad who was always working. So, with the business and house sold, possessions relocated – the four set off to explore. Their style of travel allows them to live/work in comfort while spending quality time with Lucas and Easy (Ezekiel).

    • Kiwi Blog Bus

      In 2008, the Annison family moved from the UK to New Zealand and bought a boat. In 2010, they upgraded to a camper van to explore the country. Though the cats stay home to help the elder son with the yard work and house, the remainder of the family (including the dogs) traverse the open roads of Kiwidom, searching for hidden treasures.
