And with the right preparation, you'll learn there is nothing to fear. 

There are only things that you should be aware of in advance to make sure you have a smooth trip. In this course you'll have the ability to learn from an experienced female solo traveler who has traveled all around India alone for months at a time.

  • Common Scams, and how to handle them

World Traveler

For the last 2 years I've been traveling solo all over Asia including to India, Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia, Nepal and others. And I love it so much I want to share my travel tips and experiences with you. I love to laugh, have a good time and maintain a positive outlook, but I'm also not a pushover. So to you'll get practical and candid instruction on how to travel with ease (even through India), and to maintain boundaries. Plus I add photos and videos to my courses to give you a feel for the countries :)

Before I started traveling, I used to work in Los Angeles, California in television.
