Introducing my first-ever post on Refinery29. Can you believe a red hot fashion-y site let me contribute? Neither can I, but I’m super stoked on this piece, “10 Reasons Why Women Should Travel Solo.” Read it for inspiration and motivation to take that dream trip, stat.

Since you’re reading this blog, presumably you’re aware of the fact that I’m extremely flight-phobic.

Given the recent spate of air disasters, paired with the excessive number of connecting flights and crap airlines I must endure in order to use frequent flyer miles for this trip, it’s understandable that I’ve been, how you say, shitting a giant brick over these impediments to adventure.

I mentioned to a friend the other day that due to Colorado’s recent- and inexplicable, given our freewheeling attitude toward pot– crackdown on Xanax prescriptions, I’ve had to go to extraordinary- if still legal- lengths so I can fly.

Stay tuned for my updates from the road!
