Loni James

I'm Loni, a traveler and storyteller. I quit my job to travel the world full-time with plans to go on a hike and date in every country along the way. I'm of the spontaneous variety with nothing set in stone and open to a world of possibilities.

I originally set out to go on dates as a way to meet locals and have some fun along the way. Somewhere over the last 14 countries it's turned into something more.  I've collected interesting stories, met some wonderful humans and started writing for the first time, all while learning about myself and other cultures. My hope is these stories are both entertaining and educational.

This blog's creation is a direct result of thousands of women cheering me on and telling me to write a book already. I couldn't do this without you. I hope that putting these stories in one place will allow people to follow along and maybe just maybe, one day this will be published. Don't forget to subscribe so you don't miss the next date!

And so it begins. First stop, London!

Connecting with a local during my first few days in a new place can completely change how the rest of my time goes, from getting recommendations to the opportunity for a second or third date depending on how strong the connection.

And so it begins. First stop, London!

The Swiss-Suation

I have a theory that the fancier the car, the harder it is to find the handle. It’s a convertible which is lower to the ground than I thought possible and even with his assistance I, unceremoniously and literally, fell into the seat.

Parks and a Hail Mary

Kisses are like dates, I swear you don’t appreciate the good ones until you’ve had a REALLY BAD ONE.
