I’m a solo travel expert, solopreneur and founder of Wanderful Company, a labour of love inspired by 15 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…

‘The man who has no imagination has no wings’ – Muhammad Ali

‘You may have the Universe if I may have Italy’ – Giuseppe Verdi

No 3: Rome

Imagine….sipping a cappuccino in the gentle haze of summer sunshine while partaking in people watching from a chic Italian Piazza..partaking in people watching from a chic Italian Piazza…imagine the gentle nod of approval you feel as fashionista locals strutt their stuff before your curious eyes…imagine the joy of being lazy – ‘la dolce far niente’ (the sweetnesss of doing nothing)…the feeling of being stuck in time as you ponder how gladiators once triumphed…Rome wasn’t built in a day…but then again, who can blame them…they had pizza! ‘a tavola nessun diventa’ – ‘at the table no one grows old’…

Oh dear Rome,

What can I say,

A city of beauty,

You are today.

The sights, the sounds,

Of old and new,

You take my breath,

And fill me too.

Gladiators once stood,

Heads held high,

And brave they were,

This history gone by.

You shine, you bask,

A city of light,

A place that captures,

All wanderers tonight.

Arrivederci Rome,

Now time to move on,

Grazie old friend,

You amazed all along.



Founder of Wanderful Company

Creativity is intelligence having fun’ – Albert EInstein

And something wanderful about Rome…

Rome was the very first city in the world to record a population of 1 million.

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...
