Nature’s Window, Kalbarri National Park


My name is Meghan; though my sisters bestowed the nickname Magpie to me years ago and it has seemed to stick and is pretty relevant to my current status.

After 4 years in University I decided to reassess the tight expectations I had placed on myself and decided to start living my life more aligned with the experiences I was longing for. Off I went to Perth, Australia for an indescribable year on a working holiday. As much as Perth felt like home- visa regulations forced me out of the country along with an unquenched thirst to see more of this world.

As of September 28th, 2016 I have been flocking rather aimlessly backpacking through out SEA starting in Vietnam. Next stop Laos- and only time will tell where else (Cambodia, Myanmar?!). I am slowly making my way back around the globe with plans to stop in London and Dublin for the holidays and then back home to the Boston area.

I have delved through endless amounts of personal blogs which have given me perspective on the ins and outs of the places I have been and more importantly the courage to begin the female solo traveler journey. I can only hope that this can provide some inspiration for others especially anyone who relates to the areas of traveling:


as a female

with mental illness

sober and in recovery

*Though these things do not define me as a person they most definitely provide a different lens through which I see the world and experience day to day life*

I hope you enjoy Xx
