Kay Bolden is a travel writer, speaker, food justice blogger, newspaper columnist and certified tree hugger. Always dreaming of faraway places and wild adventures, she finally picked up her backpack at age 55 and hiked out to see the world. Since then, she has solo trekked through Europe, South America and most of the United States, discovering that nature is the key to her spirituality.
She loves stories about risk-taking women, from Pippi Longstocking to Amelia Earhart to Harriet Tubman to her own courageous mom. Women who dared to push the boundaries and live by their own convictions. She encourages women to travel solo, and reconnect with their own inner strengths. A backpacker’s resilience, a hiker’s ability to improvise, a climber’s determination to reach the summit — these are traits that in everyday life become resourcefulness, attention to detail, and persistence in the face of obstacles.
Kay lives in one of the world’s great beer cities, San Diego, CA, with her dog Fergus. She writes about travel, nature and finding spirituality in unlikely places at www.KayBolden.com and on Twitter.
