Hi, I'm Ummi!
When I think of a solo traveler, I’d picture someone who is:
Fun at parties
Good at reading maps
I am NONE of the above.
I’m an introvert who would rather bury her head in a book than make small talk with people. I can’t catch a ball, can’t drive, and can’t swim. I have a fear of every little thing — from water, to speed, to reptiles, to heights. And I have zero sense of direction.
Yet, through all my blunders, I have managed to visit 49 countries over 4 continents. I’m writing this blog to share my stories that I hope can help and inspire you to travel solo — even if you don’t think you’re cut out for it.
