Being the mature adult that I am, I realize some of you may not want to walk with ME all the time (or ever). My style is different and I write about ALL kinds of travel. I don't want to leave anyone out and I don't want to be put into a "niche" with just one group of people. I am passionate about TOO many things so I am going to continue writing, sharing photos and video confessionals on MANY THINGS.
If you happened to find me and decide you really don't like me, maybe I can help you find someone you WILL like. My purpose is to be your #tourguide. I am actually a CTA (Certified Tourism Ambassador) in my beautiful home city of San Antonio. Our purpose is to provide a POSITIVE visitor experience for everyone. I carry that role into my everyday life and especially my blog and website. If you're not getting what you need from me, I have the ability to GUIDE you to someone who might be a better fit.
I am starting a new feature on Thursdays. I will not promise a post EVERY Thursday, but if I do have a Top Ten List to share, it will be on this day. What better way to kick off this series than to share my Top Ten list of Travel Bloggers. Before I start, let me give a disclaimer. This is MY list--my personal picks. The opinions expressed on my website are not necessarily in line with the general public (or google). I am different, my brain is different and I like different things. I am always, however, honest and my opinions are ONLY mine. Here we go:
1. Solofriendly.com This website and its creator is the reason I started my blog. I had been toying around with the idea and after finding her in a yahoo search for "solo female travel", she became my mentor. I was looking for validation that I was normal. I am a happily married woman that LOVES to travel solo. I felt NOT a lot of support from friends and family members who just didn't get it. They couldn't understand why I would want to go anywhere without my husband (who I absolutely adore). The explanation for that is in a future series yet to be written. Gray and her website made me feel normal. They also inspired me to finally start my own blog after I was able to meet her on her first trip to San Antonio. If she could hold down a full time job AND a thriving blog and website, I had no excuse not to try.
