About the author

Hi, I’m Megan, and I’m a recovering workaholic.

After putting myself through school – including a crazy year of a three-hour commute (each way) – I landed myself in the world of marketing… with a trailer.

Broken down in the Rocky Mountains!

In the trailer, on the trailer, under the trailer, and driving it across the Rocky Mountains of Western Canada; that thing was my life. But was it my calling? Of course not.

Sometimes my job was to drive a Pride Parade float through downtown Vancouver..

What I really love is travel. And not to those ritzy places with all-inclusives and 5-star hotels. I love places where real communities exist, and where all the distractions of the Western lifestyle kind of… don’t.

So here I am, in Africa, for the fourth time. In this trip, I am travelling overland from Morocco to… well, that’s yet to be determined.

After a few months of flying solo, often struggling to find useful information on where I am travelling to, I decided to start a blog – both to connect with friends and family at home, and also to include content that other travellers (particularly solo-females) may find helpful in this region!

If you have any questions or comments, I’d love to hear from you! Thanks for reading, and happy travels (unless, of course, you’re at home trying to live vicariously through my adventure. In that case, COME VISIT!!)

  1. So glad you checked out my blog! I love what I’ve read by you thus far, and I’m looking forward to reading more! Best, e.v.


  2. The Camel misses your bright eyes and sweet smile. Great post on Ebola. It means more now that the disease has paid a visit to Bamako.


    1. Hank!!! I’m so happy to hear from you. I haven’t heard anything yet about ebola in Mali; that’s concerning! It’s amazing that you’re still over there. I sent an email a while back, did you get it?


  3. Hey Megan,
    First of all, love the blog. Myself and a friend are travelling to West africa in September for 2 months, and we’re finding it extremely difficult to find any up-to-date information, so for that we thank you 🙂
    This is a long shot seeing as you didn’t go to Guinea, but did you perchance hear anything on the way about getting a visa? I’m driving myself crazy trying to contact different embassies, and wonder would it be best to just play it by ear once I get there? And Guinea-Bissau visa was pretty straightforward you said?

    Any extra info you had would be unbelievable (we are also 2 girls in our mid 20s :))

    Thanks, Bronagh
