    hi kristen, i’ve definitely got the travel bug but the problem is i’m only seventeen and although i’m more than happy to work, budget and pick cheap accomodations , i think the main issue is safety – since a lot of the places i want to go (eg. parts of south america, africa, asia, europe) aren’t the safest for a 17 year old girl and my parents are concerned. would love any tips or destination recomendations for solo female travel!

    ps your blog is absolutely amazing !!!
