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.

Imagination is a ‘wanderful’ thing! It’s yours, it’s free, it’s limitless…

‘If you can dream it, you can do it’ – Walt Disney

‘Un verre de rosé Mademoiselle? Ah oui Monsieur mais, je préfère une bouteille’!

A glass of rosé Miss? Oh yes Sir, but I prefer a bottle!

No 1: Provence

Imagine…a chilled glass of rosé savored in the glorious Meditteranean sunshine…the calming scent of lavender punching the air amid the gentle hustle of the local village market….delicious cheese provoking your taste buds into surrender, the smell of freshly baked bread beckoning you nearer, the array of local olives begging to be sampled in l’heure de aperitif…an ‘Oh la la’, Bien Sur and Merci Mademoiselle’ floating above the market stalls as you bask in its perfection…a gentle sigh warming your heart in this quintessentially French joie de vivre…

Mon Dieu Provence,

You tease me so,

Those lavender fields,

I’ve come to know.

You fill my eyes,

With purple haze,

I bask, the smell,

In wanderful gaze.

Beauty abounds,

In awe and delight,

I cannot contain,

This wanderful sight,

The sea, the air,

So fresh so pure,

I can’t deny,

Your wanderful allure.

Your scented skies,

The wine, the cheese,

Thank you, Provence,

Come back? Yes, please!

Reality can be beaten with enough imagination’ – Mark Twain

And something wanderful about Provence…

Provence has been producing wines for more than 2500 years

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...
