Welcome to L’Aventure Travel! I love to explore. I live for new cultural experiences. I adore making new connections with people along the way. I am always planning my next adventure – near or far – and want to share what I have learned with you, to encourage your own journey.
I created L’Aventure Travel to share women’s stories across borders and through various mediums, striving to include more cultural & historical context that I find lacking too often in travel content, and I feel is such a key educator and motivator to get out and explore the world. I spend a significant amount of time solo traveling, and talking with locals, hoping to get an authentic, immersive experience of the place I am in, whether a different neighborhood in my city or a country on the other side of the planet. I explore these themes in my current podcast is Suitcase Sojourn, and recently wrote my first children’s book, dedicated to my niece & nephew, titled “To Be We: The Adventures of Owen and Lucy“. My goal is to share lessons, tips, adventures and some laughs, to encourage women of all ages to travel and celebrate cultural diversity. So whether you are a veteran traveler, solo, group, or finally ready to explore the unfamiliar, it’s time to choose your own adventure, we have you covered!
