Grand Canyon, Arizona, USA  - I have extreme fear of heights. As a solo female traveler, I learned how to conquer fears by confidence and a smile.

Hello everyone! Thanks for visiting my blog!  My name is Kate L, owner and founder of the Explorabella travel & lifestyle social media brand.  I am the chief editor and content curator of this solo travel blog.  As a solo female traveler, I want to share my experiences, stories, tips, as well as vent my frustrations about issues facing us solo female travelers. 

Born in the Philippines and raised in the United States, I was exposed to the best (as well as the worst) of both worlds.  I grew up loving both cuisines, experiencing both cultures and because of these, I learned to be an independent thinker and open-minded individual.

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates  - Part of becoming a travel blogger is to open your mind to various cultures and religions? I have setup a solo travel blog in order for me to broaden my perspective and become a better person.

Living in the US, I am surrounded by people coming from all over the world and exposed in different languages and cultures.  My curiosity was triggered and I was willing to explore some more.  I have been browsing pictures and videos of different places, both international and domestic and dreaming that someday I will ride the camels under the gazing sun within the sands of Morocco, walk across the Westminster bridge across Thames river gazing at the iconic Big Ben in London, stroll along the bright lights of the Las Vegas Strip, or climb up Mount Lycabettus to photograph the best view of Athens in Greece.

I consider myself a creative individual with a passion for travel, photography, lifestyle, and food.

Brooklyn, New York  - During my travels and explorations, I discovered another passion of mine - photography and vlogging.

I believe in diversity and I push for cultural understanding.  This is why I dedicate my life to explore.  I think that there is something out there in store for me if I follow my heart and pursue my true passions.  It’s not only exploring the beauty this world offers, but exploring the beauty of life as well!  Cheers!
