Hey, I’m Julia. I’m an Army brat who grew up all over the world and am now a grad student getting a PhD in Aerospace Engineering. I quit my corporate day job to chase my dreams of outer space and a life well-travelled. All this to say: I’m not an inexplicably wealthy Instagram travel blogger, and you don’t have to be either to experience the world (and beyond!) outside your bubble. I’m here to share my tips and ideas on how other young women can engage in fun, responsible, solo travel on a budget.
