Kristin Addis 1028
I'm a former investment banker from Southern California who sold everything I owned back in September 2012 and bid my old life goodbye in favor of traveling solo around the world - searching for off the beaten path destinations in Asia and beyond. I travel without guidebooks, instead speaking with locals, taking local transportation, and immersing myself in the culture.
