Who is Blond Wayfarer?
Blond Wayfarer is a solo female travel blog created by Rachel Elizabeth in May 2015. At this point in her life, Rachel had already embarked on many journeys, but she reached a crossroads, one that inspired her to start this blog.
Despite its focus on solo female travel, Blond Wayfarer also covers many niche topics such as traveling with a fear of flying, hypochondria, and generalized anxiety. In addition, Blond Wayfarer regularly features beginners guides for new and eager travelers, and provides nifty information about literary travel – including tours, significant sites, bookshops, and other experiences.
Blond Wayfarer promotes breaking boundaries and comfort zones. While all destinations attract her interest, Rachel has a particular fondness for Europe, especially Scotland, Portugal, and “off the beaten path” cities and towns.
Currently, Rachel is based in New Jersey.
Why work with Blond Wayfarer?
Rachel has an exceptionally strong background in writing. She holds a Masters Degree in English Literature from a prestigious university (“A Public Ivy”). Furthermore, she has two teacher certifications and a Bachelors Degree in both English and Sociology. Her experience as a teacher taught her to be creative, influential, and daring, yet still painfully aware of deadlines and making meaningful relationships with peers.
In June 2016, Rachel was selected to participate in BlogHouse Philadelphia where she was trained by some of the top travel bloggers in the industry.
Furthermore, as demonstrated in a recent survey, loyal readers trust Rachel’s travel experiences because of her honest, witty, and straight-forward style of writing:
I like that you’re candid about your travels – your fears, your experiences, all of it! The humor is engaging, too.
I really like that you are honest and relatable! I’m a traveling teacher too, and I relate so much more to you than to bloggers who quit their jobs to travel the world and say “you can, too!” (No, I can’t.) Thank you for your honest posts! I also really enjoy your writing style and your post topics. I love the literary travel angle of your blog as well.
[I enjoy] your passion for literature and that you seem very creative – you’re able to compose articles about a wide variety of articles.
