I’m a solo travel expert, solopreneur and founder of Wanderful Company, a labour of love inspired by 19 glorious years of non-stop traveling alone. 

Equipped with nothing more than a suitcase, a one-way ticket and an incessant desire to be happy, I’ve gone from one solo travel adventure to the next for almost one third of my life to countries including Argentina, Brazil, Italy and France.
I'm Kirsteen!

Want that little something to smile about on a rainy day?

Love that little something to laugh about on a quiet day?

Crave that little something to think about on a boring day?

Well, my little strawberry shortcake, while I can’t promise you a 1st class ticket on a luxury vacation, I can give you the next best thing…BLISS! Yes, bliss! A little gift from me to you, solo travel inspired weekly, BLISS Magazine No.4. is here. And if you love this weekly as much as we do, please save in your favorites! Oh, and pop any friends onto the email list you think would love a weekly pick-me-up! Our new Bridget Jones style comedy ‘LEMON, LOVE’ (page 12) Episode 4 is out today. And you can catch Episode 1, 2 and 3 in previous magazines here on the blog.

Oh, and we have more…and no, I don’t have a trip to Italy as a freebie if you take a year’s subscription to BLISS, (it is free)…but I do have BLISS in video format below, along with quirky music. And, you can close your eyes and feel you are in Italy as you read Lemon, Love! We’ve also added an adorable vintage playlist in the mini series (page 13)! If you are new here, this ‘amuse bouche’ weekly is inspired by solo travel, real-life comedy, and beautiful visuals. Yes, we are all about ‘bliss’.


Firstly, my little lambchop, we believe ‘less is more’. Where Anna and global magazine entourage win on a well established fanbase, cutie pie BLISS wins on weight (16 pages light!), quirkiness and a ‘want something different’ fanbase. We are so light, we could slip into an Amex card reader and there would still be plenty of space for a swipe, LOL. Now, can’t say the same about Vogueyvoo! Just saying…(we love her, really).

Yes, we are just like a yummyyumsta indulgent macaroon you can drool over with a cup of freshly roasted coffee! We are like the ‘ahhhhhhhhhhh’ you utter as you slop onto the sofa and pop on those Pengiun slippers you won on last year’s Secret Santa. We are just like that loved freebie sample you wangled your paws onto at the perfume counter when the sales teams were on mission ‘must make them buy’ but you cleverly kept your well earned dollars. Yes, we are small but if you think small doesn’t pack a punch, you clearly have never been out walking with a stone in your shoe! LOL.

Oh, and what else do we have the big glossies don’t? Well, my little coconut, we never chat DIETING. Why? Because ALL FOOD IS GOOD FOR YOU! And we don’t believe ANY of the food noise. Oh no! Have you ever seen how a Italians eat?! Enough said…

And our Bridget Jones style comedy?

LEMON, LOVE – Lana Leigh is bonkers! Think ‘Emily in Positano’, with a sprinkling of Sam (Sex and the City) and a pinch of Mr Bean, in a smoothie! (Netflix, if you are watching, it got a lot of potential LOL).

Want to know more about BLISS? Well, take a look yourself…and make sure to check out Dear Coco , Miss Bonkers advice columnist! Think Bridget Jones on speed out to ”happify” the world.


If you happen to fall in love with this unique and quirky solo travel inspired magazine, please share! We would be incredibly grateful and appreciative. If we made you laugh, even a little, we have done our job! And for any of your workmates seeking something more fun than the usual office coffee machine gossip, well, we’d be delighted…(you can read us in zoom meets, nobody has to know. Just saying…LOL)

Ciao, ciao my little noodle, until next week! XO

hi, i'm kirsteen

Your new BFF & Travel Coach.

I'm an ex-Corporate girl who gave up a very successful career in the UK for a dream life traveling alone. Why solo? To do what I wanted,  where I wanted, and when I wanted. That was 15 years ago when I left with nothing more than a suitcase and an incessant desire to be happy. I've never looked back...
