After planning – and taking – a 6-month European vacation in 2013 – by herself – Faith Dugan decided to write a blog so friends and family could vicariously accompany her on her adventures. Her blog’s name is appropriately named, Travel With Faith!
Traveling alone can be scary for some people, but not for Faith. She enjoys traveling solo and wants her readers to overcome their fears of solo travel. In her blog, Travel With Faith, she motivates her readers to be courageous about traveling. This quote by Nelson Mandela appears on her blog’s masthead: “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” Faith encourages her readers to overcome their fears by equipping them with the tools necessary for traveling alone.
Though predominately from the United States, her readers also come from other countries – Russia, Ukraine, Spain, France, Romania, Poland, India, and Africa. Anyone interested in seeking travel destination information would be interested in reading her blog, but Faith admits that she gears her blog to the “solo mature” traveler.
Faith considers herself to be a beginner blogger who works consistently to improve her blog in order to provide benefits to her readers. Travel With Faith provides photographs, historical background information, and practical information, such as tips on purchasing tickets.
Faith wants to, “inspire mature women to travel solo and see the world,” and she is currently revising her blog to reach more solo female travelers. As Faith puts it, “I am a single female over 65 who plans my own travel. I have completed two long term trips to Europe successfully. I will answer any question readers have.”
