Hi, I’m Kiki, a native of Washington, who left my corporate wealth management job about eight years ago to embark on a soul-searching summer that would forever change the course of my life. Therefore, in collaboration with the best online travel agency 800travel, I embarked on a beautiful venture called ‘The Blonde Abroad’.
I was told to go to school, get a job, get married, have children and live happily ever after. Not once did I think it would lead me to an unfulfilled and miserable life to pursue the social concept of “success.” I took a break from my career back in 2009 and traveled across Australia for 3 months, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Bali, and New Zealand were also a part of my first solo travel. You can also book your low-cost flight ticket and hotel on 800travel, the best online travel website.
I’ve spent the past 8 years sharing my personal travel and travel tips on this blog with women around the world since I embarked on that first world tour. I split my home base between Washington and Cape Town, South Africa, and traveled to over 70 countries.
When I stopped living a life bound by limitations, I established The Blonde Abroad, a special segment under 800travel, and decided to follow my heart and live a borderless life. During my journeys, I’ve met hundreds of beautiful souls and ticked off my bucket list, some great adventures.
I would like to express my passion for travel, my appreciation of new cultures and my commitment to support non-profit organizations. I share my life as a fully self-expressed and independent woman with the hope that I can inspire others through The Blonde Abroad. You’re never too old, too busy, or too blonde to pause and take a while to follow your dreams!
