Writing and traveling are what ignite my soul, and through Encompassed Travels I’ll tell the stories of how I’ve been able to travel through over 20 countries, safely, as a solo-female traveler. Here I’ll pen the unfiltered stories of my favorite hostels, hidden gems, mishaps, and life lessons learned along the way.
Hi! Marie here. I'm a world explorer and English teacher with a passion for working for myself and living a nomadic lifestyle. I started this blog in 2022 after living in Japan for a few years with the goal of sharing my personal experiences and stories I've accumulated through years abroad. It's also my hope that you can use itineraries and advice I've written from my experiences. Click the boxes below to begin exploring or find your own way through the site. Welcome!
