Welcome To Girl With The Passport

My name is Kelly and I am the quirky (you’ve been warned) solo traveler behind the girl with the passport. In 2017 I got tired of my boring 9-5 job and thought, “geez, there’s got to be more to life than living for the weekend”. Am I right?

So here I am, living my dreams and hoping to inspire you to do the same “Pepperjam Verification”.

Now was it easy? No.

Has there been a ton of chaos along the way? Yup!

Would I change a thing? Never!

Is it impossible? Absolutely not!


If I Can Do It

You Can Too

Trust me, I am just a regular, New York City girl, trying to travel the world one day at a time. and trust me, if I can do it, then you can do it too.

On my blog, you’ll find hopefully hilarious. practical, down-to-earth tips for solo female travelers on any budget. I want to help you discover europe, New York City, and beyond, without making all the same disastrous travel mistakes that I have.
I love to travel beyond the typical and often find myself in unique and totally weird places, meeting insanely interesting people. I want to inform you but also make you crack up and all the insane situations that I find myself in.

Because you know what? Part of travel is learning to have fun even though you are making a ton of mistakes along the way!

So if you find me mildly interesting, then feel free to anonymously stalk me on social media! I don’t mind!

“Thanks so much for blogging! I love your style. It is informative but also funny and light, and a reminder that travel does not necessarily have to be expensive to be fun. You also inspire me to keep on traveling:))))))))”
