I would like you all to meet Tammy, the founder and Author of her Blog, Edgymix - Travel for Fashion. Last year, Tammy embarked on a year long Solo journey across Europe, Trans-Africa and parts of the Middle East. It was a very brave, ambitious and spectacular trip which she generously shared on her Blog. Tammy's Blog features her travels around the World with her own take on the fashion, lifestyle and culture of the countries she visited. She is not just interested with the traditional sightseeing but she takes the time and makes an effort to meet and mingle with the locals to learn about their countries and about themselves. Now that she is back in New York, her hometown, she generously shared her Adventures with us here in her own words.
I want to visit every single country in this World and capture the fashion elements of each and every country. But of course I want to show people about the fun things to do in every country. For me, this journey was very exciting because I love Africa and the Middle East. I know I was going to hit 100+ countries.
On your Blog last year, you featured every step of your journey and provided advise on travelling solo especially for women. What is the most valuable advise will you give to a woman who is planning to travel solo?
Be brave, be kind, be generous and be cautious. I believe there are more good people in this World than bad people so I am not afraid to travel alone as a single woman. But of course, you need to be street smart and always ask local people for advise.
Just two. I understand people who live in poor areas would like to get out and have a better life. We all do! But I hope they really think that I am cute too!
