What are you looking for?
I’m Julie, a.k.a. the Bamboo Traveler. Like bamboo, I look weak on the outside (a short, bit overweight, and not very athletic 40 something traveler with poor eyesight, a bum knee and flat feet), but inside I’m strong, resilient, flexible, and open-minded. I write about how to travel to exotic locations around the world and what it’s like traveling solo as a middle-aged woman. I’m also a bookworm, food nerd, and amateur historian, so you’ll find lots of advice and info about what to read for your travels, where and what to eat, and where it all came from. Welcome to my travel blog! I’m so glad you made it here!
