Hannah likes to blame her addiction for travel on Indiana Jones, but really, she has no idea when it started. All she knows is that as soon as she completed University in 2011 she deviated from the ‘norm’ and moved halfway across the world to Galway, Ireland. She joked about being ‘the travel virgin’; she’d never been anywhere before, much less on a plane, and she did it all solo. Is it safe to travel the world as an attractive girl?

Most people thought she was crazy. Not just because she was travelling by herself, but also because she was a young female travelling alone. She had every travel stereotype thrown at her and was given all kinds of crazy advice.

She listened to none of it, and in return had the best time of her life. She had visited 25 countries before she turned 25. She travelled through all but five of them as a solo female.
