“You’re traveling alone? Aren’t you lonely?” I hear this countless times while traveling solo and it’s always in a tone of amazement. I simply reply with a smile and, “I’m traveling alone, not lonely.”
My name is Jennifer Huber (additional pen name: JA Huber) and I’m just your average forty-something-year-old gal living life solo. It wasn’t always that way but as life takes its twists and turns, I’ve found myself navigating this world alone. Rather than waiting for Mr. Right or finding a travel buddy to coordinate vacation schedules with, I’ve decided rather than giving up what I love – the adventure of travel – to embrace traveling solo.
I’ve worked in the tourism industry for nearly 20 years including 10 years with a park management company in Yellowstone, Death Valley and Everglades National Parks. I stumbled into the tour and travel industry by taking a hiking trail which led down a career path and I currently live in Southwest Florida working in the tourism industry.
Make no mistake, I don’t take myself seriously yet I hope followers of SoloTravelGirl.com are inspired to shed their fears and travel solo. Welcome and enjoy the ride!
I’ve been dabbling in social media since 2004 or 2005. Tom was my
first social media friend (yes, I still have a MySpace account). This is my
personal blog QuirkyKitschGirl.com and while living in Tallahassee, I kept QKGTallahassee.com. My travel blog is Solo Travel Girl. And, I have contributed to Suite101, Yahoo! Contributor Network and currently have a column in the Southwest Florida Parrot. I was lead blogger for Resort Rentals International (Feb. 2009 – June 2011).
I’m available for blogging and social media projects. Drop me a line here!
