Your Adventure Starts NOW.

About Jessica Festa

Hi! I’m Jessie, a conscious solo female travel blogger.

Think of me as your travel blog BFF, as I want to help you make your travel dreams a reality.

Here’s a little secret:

You do not have to wait until you have a ton of money saved up or a travel partner — even if you’re a female — to start traveling now.

Whether you’re a solo traveler craving spontaneity, a wanderer in search of more than your typical sightseeing, or a blogger with dreams of making travel a profitable lifestyle, my aim is to help you fulfill your dream of traveling and bring more meaning and fulfillment to your journey.

The goal:

To help you awaken your curiosity through real-talk and resources for exploring the world — and experiencing life — #BeyondTheGuidebook.

That also extends to those wanting to monetize their passion for exploration through travel blogging, whether you want to hit the road full-time or add extra income on top of your 9-to-5.

(Because yes, you can totally run a profitable travel blog and keep your desk job!)
