Your Expert Traveling Coach

Hi, I’m Donna

As a woman of color, I navigate the world of travel with a distinct lens.

I retired in 2013 after 23 years as an international flight attendant while living and raising two children in Singapore. I became an empty nester in 2018 when my son graduated college, and my daughter started college. I moved back to Singapore in 2018, but as it is with ex-pats, most of my ex-pat friends had transitioned.

As an empty nester, I didn’t have much in common with the new ex-pat mothers I met. However, whenever I met new people, just as always, conversations evolved around travel once they realized I was a former flight attendant. People often ask me questions and opinions about travel, so in 2020, I decided to blog about it.
