This summer I visited Philadelphia for the first time. I was only there for a short time but I packed a lot into my visit. Here are my Philadelphia Top Sights: The Historic Side Being from the UK, my knowledge of American History is pretty poor. But I still had a ague understanding of the significance of the Independence Hall and Liberty Bell, both of which can be found in Philadelphia. Although I liked seeing these things and learnt a lot, they were probably the least exciting part of my visit! However, they are free so if you have the

Over the last few years I have pushed myself to be braver and do more things. One of them has been travelling. This is my story of going from travelling for the very first time aged 23 to becoming a solo traveller by the age of 26. Here are my adventures in solo travel as a single girl.
