Hi there! I’m Annie, a fun-loving gal with the desire to see the world, affordably and awesomely. Dame Tripper is a place for travelers and tourists alike, who want to fly in the face of expectations by getting out to travel into different cultures. Or who just want an idea how how to spend the day having fun and simply smiling.
So if you love traveling to distant places, or taking a quick road trip, then this is the place for you! If you love getting to know the culture and finding the best fresh-squeezed juice by following a poorly drawn map on a napkin by some helpful bartender, look around and get inspired. If you want to challenge yourself and get outside your comfort zone, you’ve found a like minded soul.
You will find all types of stories here, from helpful travel tips and secret locations, to thoughts on travel and how best to visit a place with an open heart. Do you like fun trips?

I started this website because I often travel alone and I had a lot of people telling me how brave that was. But if you’re here, then you’re brave too! Traveling alone, or even with friends, to distant places maybe off the beaten path a bit is not as scary or daunting as it might seem. Anyone can do it! Its totally possible and fun! AND you can be a baller on a budget.
I’ve lived in 5 countries outside the US and traveled to as many countries as possible while abroad. I currently live in Washington state, have a love for gin martinis, and I absolutely fail at wearing high heels. (Although sometimes martinis make me think I can wear them.) I also cannot cartwheel which annoys me to no end, but I can and will dance salsa whenever I get the chance.
So, say hi on Facebook, or comment on your favorite post! Can’t wait to meet you 🙂
