The Sisterhood is Growing and We Need You!

Thursday, May 21, 2015

You all know the Sole Sister story by now.

It started with 2 girls who were pretty content in the high tower of their corporate jobs. But something was still missing. They both felt that there was more to life so they hatched a plan.

They saved money, quit their cushy jobs and planned to explore as much of the world as they could. They sold most of their possessions, stuffed the little they owned into a backpack and went away for 6 months across India and Southeast Asia until their escape fund ran out.

And so the story continues and the sisterhood grows.

Today, Sole Sisters is a community of women travelers who are passionate about making travel possible for themselves and for others. We are from all walks of life who defy the challenges and accept the uncertainties of life on the road. Our aim is to connect with like minded people who continue to travel, share their stories and empower others to find their own adventures.

Sole Sister Adi

Sole Sister Adi of Love the Search escaped from the corporate world so her life now happily revolves around yoga and travel. She lives a simple, eco-friendly lifestyle and inspires those around her to do the same. She shares her AntiGravity and yoga practice everywhere she goes and dreams of building rustic Secret Spot hostels in beautiful tropical destinations. She just ended her Southeast Asian adventure and is currently exploring South America.

Sole Sister Lauren

Sole Sister Lauren of The Wandering Orange grew up in rural Oregon, where she spent most of her time swimming in local rivers and waterfalls, hiking nearby forest trails and searching for hidden faerie homes in fallen tree trunks. For over three years, she has been traveling and drawing comic books about her adventures all over the world. She is currently based in Australia and is planning a round the world trip.

Sole Sister Stephanie

Sole Sister Stephanie of Satori grew up in Manila, then moved to California at the age of 14. But her home is on the road. She's a nomadic photographer, wanderer, adventurer, and dreamer who lives for capturing moments of bliss, the infinite beauty of life, inspiring hearts, reigniting spirits, wanderlust and moments of Satori. She just came from Southeast Asia and is seeking new adventures in Australia.

Rica has asked to leave Sole Sisters because she is in a different life stage now. She has other priorities and wants to start other projects.

I myself have seen my journey with Sole Sisters evolve and thought that it's time for me to take a backseat and perhaps start working on new endeavours. But I see how this community has grown so much in the recent years and I want to continue making travel happen for you.
