Welcome to Her Bags Were Packed!

This is an online community with a dual focus on helping women gain confidence to travel on their own and on sharing authentic stories about life, love, trauma, joy, adventure, relationships and anxiety. This is a place to ask your travel questions, a place to express your fears, a place to get help planning trips, and also a place to find support as you wrestle with your story. This is a place to be reminded that you’re not alone, that there are more of us here and we all have baggage. I’ll be sharing the stories I am wrestling with, stories of fear, stories of love, stories of heartbreak, stories of victory, and stories that don’t quite have endings yet...

Send me your questions, send me your fears, send me your stories.
