MELINDA GARCIA

MELINDA GARCIA

We call her DJ Boom Boom for her uncanny ability to pull out a song that somehow matches perfectly with the vibe. Having lived in multiple countries and speaking three languages, Melinda is a super solo traveler who is always good for a laugh.

Renay Weir

Renay went on a solo group tour to Morocco and loved it so much she hasn’t left in 2.5 years! She’s handy with a camera and can navigate almost anywhere. Her passion for travel is infectious and it’s doubled with a seemingly endless supply of energy.

Tayla Harter

“Waiting for those to travel with me resulted in no travel at all so one day I said “stuff it” and brought a one-way ticket out of New Zealand to start my solo adventures around the world and it was the best thing I ever did!”

Manjot Bal

Manjot is interested in the socioeconomic and political concerns of fragile regions around the world. Solo travel lets her mingle with the locals and get under the skin of a country. Her other major interests are history and arts of the places she visits.

Anom Mahadi

“I am a cat loving bookworm and have been traveling solo for 10 years. Coming from an Asian culture with so many ‘don’ts’ for women traveling, SoFe Travel has empowered me to travel further feeling safe and supported.”

Shruty Tanuj Arora

“What really excites me about travel is the ability to experience a different life with every new culture. Traveling slowly helps me form a stronger connection to the place and of course is a lovely way to meet new people.”

Brittany Steer

“For me, solo travel has shown me how strong and capable I am. My favorite place I’ve traveled so far is Iceland. SoFe Travel inspires me, motivates me, and I adore helping to run this group and our Instagram.”

Linda Harper

Linda is our Bali Guesthouse boss, a Meetup Tour leader, and a solo travel role model. She is affectionately called Mary Poppins because she is somehow prepared for every occasion in her very small pack.

Victoria Irvine

Impromptu dance party? Extra pita full of falafel? Victoria is our girl for lots of laughs, and she comes with a heart of gold. Having grown up in a family of serious travelers, she’s ticked off loads of bucket list countries, which has made her the soulful, kind, thoughtful kind of traveler we love.

Nikki P. Zuppin

Nikki is an Aussie living in Bali and traveling full time. She’s never met a dog she doesn’t love, is up for any adventure, and has the sunniest smile around. You can find her by the pool with a snack anytime she’s not leading a Meetup Tour.
