Jamaican Girl AbroadTravel, Dream Chasing & Living On Purpose
I’m Anna. It seems you’ve stumbled upon my little spot here in the webisphere. This is where I talk travel, dream chasing, and living our best lives. (Yes, I said our, because we’re in this together now.)

What I Know For Sure After 8 Months of Solo Travel
The first 8 months of my solo travel journey, the lessons were many. Some were difficult to learn, others funny, and some just downright embarrassing. Nevertheless, I survived my first 8 months abroad traveling solo and came away with many lessons. Here are the ten things I know for sure now, having taken this journey.
I get lots of questions about specific destinations. How much should I budget? Is it safe? What do they eat? These guides will be cool easy-to-scan two-pagers that cover all the important suff.
This is probably the best place to catch me as I try to post regularly and I’m super responsive to comments and DMs. Also, I like to think I drop gems in my captions. You be the judge.
