Welcome from Girl with the Passport



Hey Guys!


My name is Kelly and I am the QUIRKY (you’ve been warmed) solo traveler behind 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. 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!


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!




 I’m in love with cities I’ve never been to and people I’ve never met. – John Green.
