Hi, It's Alexa.
I want to brag about my travel best friend, Emilia, and how we met....

In 2019, Emilia bought my Bali guidebook and flew to Bali for a one-month trip. And then COVID happened! Emilia got "stuck" in Bali and reached out to me for advice. We met for lunch and clicked instantly! She moved into the treehouse on my property a week later...and we ended up living together for a year. It's been 5 years since we met, and our lives are now completely intertwined as business-women, friends, and travel partners. 

Emilia's natural talents as an artist and graphic designer seeped their way into my guidebook brand and now she's my official business parter at The Solo Girl's Travel Guide.  
And to think, all this magic happened because she bought my Bali book. 

Fast forward to 2024 and here's what's happening:
  • Emilia now lives in Spain...with a guy she met while we were traveling in Baja Sur, Mexico, to write the Baja guidebook. 
  • I now live in Seattle... with a guy I met while we were traveling Seattle, to write the Seattle guidebook. 
  • But there isn't a day that goes by that we don't talk to each other. She's my biggest cheerleader and I am hers. We are #TravelBFFs. 

Emy and I travel together every chance we get. We co-own a travel company called Glow Up Travel where we take women out of their comfort zones (and time zones) to travel with us. And we always make sure to spend time together, whether it's Christmas in Mexico or a soul-reset in Bali. 

This latina is an amazing photographer. I recommend following her on Instagram just to see the world through her eyes. 
To add more Emilia magic into your life, visit her website. Really, her photojournalism is incredible
And don't forget to sign up for her email list. It's *chef's kiss*.
