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.

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...
