Welcome sole sisters!

I'm Lois, co-founder and Editor-in-Chief of this travel blog. I was born and raised in the Philippines. I started this website with a former 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 around 2,500 USD (100,000 PHP) budget. I've written about the places I've visited, my top recommendations and my detailed itinerary on our ebook "Where Should I Go in Southeast Asia?"

Lois of We Are Sole Sisters

Since then, I have traveled extensively and have lived in Asia, the United States, and Europe. When I'm not traveling, I'm often surfing, learning languages or organizing workshops and retreats focused on Passion, Freedom and Empowerment. I can also help you create a blog to launch you in the life you love. I'm currently based in Europe with my husband and baby girl.

Sole Sister Lauren

Sole Sister Lauren 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 throughout Europe, Southeast Asia, the UK and Australia- where she's currently based. Get your dose of humor and wanderlust when you check out her travel comic, The Wandering Orange.

She loves getting lost in nature, trying new things, clean eating, and fitness. She loves to sing, dance, and present thanks to her dad's musical side of the family. Her passion is discourse with intelligent globe-trotters who have a lot to bring to the table, and loves learning from great minds.

Sole Sister Sarah of Coffee with A Slice of Life is a self proclaimed global gypsy, and scuba obsessed travel blogger who has been travelling the globe for the last 4 years, one cup of coffee a time.

Emma of ActiveTrvlr

Sole Sister Emma of The Active Travlr is an adventure traveller from Canada, backpacking around the world. With the love for nature, an obsession for rock climbing, and a passion for travelling, she packed her bags and decided to explore the world, with no return date. The travel bug bit, and her year-long travel plan fell through. Two years later, she’s still on the road for the unknown, to a destination off the beaten path. She also just recently raised 11,754 CAD to help rebuild remote villages affected by the quake in Nepal through her independent project The Travelling Movement.
