Hi, I’m Kay Bolden. I’m a travel writer, speaker and explorer. I motivate, inspire and challenge women to travel solo and discover their inner strengths. Because everything looks better after a long hike in the woods and a bottle of good scotch.
My love of wild places and exceptional spirits has taken me all over Europe and South America. Right now I’m training for a 2017 vodka hiking tour of Greenland and Iceland.
I write about:
- How to plan your escape around kids, significant others and jobs.
- How commuter traffic and Whole Foods have honed your survival skills.
- How to talk to the ghosts in old castles and forts.
- How to quickly fit in wherever you go.
- Why you shouldn’t wait until you have enough time or money to travel.
- Why you can always trust the Universe to know what it’s doing. Even when it’s not clear to you. (And it rarely is. Clear, I mean.)
I’ve written a couple of books (She Lives in You! The Kathleen Bolden Story and Veggie Casserole: Kids Cook the Darndest Things) and a few articles for Woman’s Day, Mothering Magazine, American Baby, the Chicago Tribune, Chicken Soup for the Single’s Soul, Chocolate for a Woman’s Courage.
