Your Adventure Starts NOW.

jessie festa, solo female travel blogger

Hi! I’m Jessica Festa, but you can call me Jessie. 

And I have a little secret for you. Are you ready? 

Listen up, 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 working a full-time desk job with minimal vacation time, in a location-dependepant relationship, paying off student loans, or just fearing the unknown, I’ll show you how to explore the globe and enrich your life with unique local encounters.

See, I empower curious solo female travelers to go beyond their guidebooks to have more meaningful, immersive and impactful trips. I also teach travel blogging courses too, 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!)
