About Christine Kaaloa | Grrrltraveler.com
Christine is a midlife solo traveler (and TV Camera Operator/Producer), who got accidentally catapulted into solo travel when a trip with friends went awry in India; hence GRRRLTRAVELER and her imperfect solo adventures were born. She’s taught English in Korea, backpacked through Asia/Southeast Asia and continues to challenge her comfort zone as a woman traveling alone, while grappling with issues of growing older.
GRRRLTRAVELER is a travel survival and solo travel site and vlog, inspiring others to find their GRRR for travel, even if it occasionally means experiencing “imperfect adventures”. Finding GRRR is not about having courage, but about surviving travel by using all the tricks and resources we’re capable of, to navigate the bizarre, foreign, frightening and often times, funny.
Christine shares tips and travel survival tricks on how to travel Asia/ Southeast Asia, live and work in Korea, as well as how to hack the fears of solo travel. For all of this she is one of our top solo female world travel experts.
Her motto: “Travel Survival and Finding your GRRR in Travel”
