Hi! My name is Pauline
Welcome to my travel blog that makes my heart happy. I don´t have the perfect life with perfect opportunities. I believe in hard work for dreams to come true. I believe in creating the opportunities I need. I love looking for new adventures and possibilities – from small places around home in Norway and from places around the world. The adventures are all around if we just make them.
I’m a Norwegian girl who started to explore the beautiful world solo in the age of 21 and now I can’t stop. I love discovering new places, meeting new people, have crazy experience and new stories to tell. My goal is to show YOU how you can travel the world on your own being smart, safe and adventurously.
Important Fact About Pauline
I’m a girl that have spelling problems caused by dyslexia. Please don’t assume I’m lazy or not smart when finding writing errors her on the Travel Blog. Writing is a complex task for me, but I love writing and sharing even with my spelling problems. Since childhood I have been fighting this struggle! Worked twice as hard as one that don’t have this handicap.
I’m writing in English which is my second language. That makes it even harder sometimes to get the grammar and spelling correctly. I try to make friends & family read my post and check spelling and grammar. They can’t always help, so sometimes I fly solo. I struggle hard with seeing my own writing mistakes. I work very hard not to put them there. Sometimes it happens.

About Pauline Travels
I grew up in Norway, in a small village with the name Åheim, maybe there is around 1000 people living there. Very safe and beautiful (Close to Stadtlandet, Hoddevika, famous surfing place in Norway). It´s so scenic with the fjords and the mountains. I always had this curiosity, that always moved me to new places to see and to discover. From the childhood we went on Sunday trips out in the nature around home. Now I go on adventure around the world. I just love going some were new, and discover it and be curios about life and people.
My first trip of solo traveling was in 2014. I was sick of hearing people telling stories about the gorgeous world out there. It was time to take action and have my own adventures. I went to Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka and Thailand had the time of my life in 2014. Learned so much about the world and myself traveling as a female solo traveler. Truly a challenge, I can recommend for any women to go traveling solo. In 2015 I went to Argentina and studied in Buenos Aires and went solo traveling in great parts of South America.
Why I´m traveling? As you can imagine the world is exquisite. So I’m in love. I have to go back and discover more.
My curiosity needs it.
Life is for living in the way you want. For me it’s not gonna be a normal life for the moment. I’m not ready for it. I don’t want to have a real job and a perfect apartment. I wanna be out there and discover more beauty and keep learning about life. I want to be myself with no limits, free, generous and smart.
I want to inspire young people to Enjoy the freedom when it´still there! Have fun, explore, learn a lot and get ridiculous. The world is the best internship ever, trust me. See you somewhere in the world?
PS. There should be more girls that travel solo
