About Me

Hi there! I’m Maria Pistorelli, the solo traveler behind TravelPuppy.com. This blog is my digital scrapbook where I share my adventures, tips, and stories from the road.

My Journey

My passion for travel began with a spontaneous trip to Italy, where I discovered the joy and freedom of exploring new places on my own.

Since then, I’ve traveled to over 50 countries, each trip teaching me something new about the world and myself.

TravelPuppy.com started as a way to document these experiences and has grown into a vibrant community of fellow solo travelers.

My Mission

At TravelPuppy.com, my mission is simple: to inspire and equip you to travel the world confidently and independently.

Traveling solo can be daunting, but with the right tips and a bit of encouragement, it’s one of the most rewarding experiences you can have.

Through my blog, I aim to share practical advice, honest reviews, and heartfelt stories that will help you make the most of your solo adventures.

In my editorial policy, you can find details of how this mission of mine is conducted.
