Welcome Sole Sisters!

I'm Lois, co-founder and Editor-in-Chief of this travel blog. I initially started this website with a colleague who shared a mutual passion for travel and adventure. We both wanted to travel around Southeast Asia as part of our 30 before 30 list.

Five months later, we were able to start this travel blog, create an itinerary, tell our parentsquit our jobs and save up for our escape fund. A year after the initial planning stage, we went on a journey across India and SE Asia and have gone through 9 countries for 6 months with only 2,200 USD (100,000 PHP) budget.

Sole Sister Lois

Since then, I have traveled extensively and have called the Philippines, USA, Germany, Switzerland, Thailand, and France home in various stages of my life. When I'm not traveling, I often surf, learn French or organize workshops and retreats focused on Passion, Freedom and Empowerment. I've just gotten married and given birth to a baby girl. We are currently based in Europe trying to find a home base for our small family.
