Hi!!! My name is Arnette! In 2011, I embarked on a round the world trip that took me through 19 countries over a total of 19 months. When I was on the road I met many travellers and we would often chat during our day tours or over beers or dinner. When you travel alone and meet new people, you share stories about yourself. You talk about where you have travelled or where you are heading. People were often curious about how and why I left to go on a round the world trip. Jaws would drop and people would ask me, “How long have you been gone?? Where have you been???”
In general, doing a round the world trip for an extended period of time isn’t all too common. People were in shock and awe. Some even started calling me “Round The World Girl”. That is how I got my nickname and the name of this blog which I started after my trip in late 2012

Don’t be shy!! Take a look around the site, say hi by sending me a message or commenting on some posts! I started this blog originally as a resource for friends and family who wanted travel tips and guides for the places that I had travelled to. I never imagined that it would grow to anything bigger but it has and now I’m doing this for you!!
