Welcome To Girl With The Passport
Hi! My name is Kelly! I am a sassy, classy, and a slightly (ever so slightly) badassy, 30+ year local New Yorker who has been an avid solo traveler for well over fifteen years (so yeah, before it was cool).
Throughout that time, I’ve lived all across the world and want to share my 15+ years of travel experience with you. This way, you don’t make all the same stupid mistakes that I did. And trust me, there were, and still are, a lot of them.
And when I’m not out gallivanting across the world or prancing around with some guac in my unicorn onesie (yes, I really do have one), I’m home in NYC.
You’ll find me not-so-quietly exploring every inch of this city possible so that I give you the absolute BEST NYC travel tips possible.
