Our Story

Hi, I’m Hyojeong, CEO and founder of NomadHer

If you are asking about my two favorite topics?
“Woman Empowerment” and “Travelling.”

I traveled to 45 countries solo. When I was 20 years old, I took a Trans-Siberian train from Paris to Busan, South Korea which took me over 200 hours when it was -40 degrees in Siberia solo, as no one wanted to my crazy journey at that time!

The question that I often heard?

“As a woman,  Isn’t it dangerous and difficult? to travel solo?”

It is true. There are moments when I did not feel comfortable: Being followed by a drunk guy at 3 am in the train station when there is no one, or going through terrible moments by a male couch-surfing host even though he had over 20 comments from previous guests. However, the reason I continued solo traveling is that it allowed me to be who I am. Solo traveling allowed me to know “What I can” and “What I cannot.” It allowed me to realize that I am actually pretty good at dealing from A to Z by myself. Because I traveled alone, local people could easily talk to me and I could easily make new friends who brought me endless inspiration. Because I traveled alone, I could really have time to think about who I am. Whenever I go on a new solo journey, I feel confident and brave.

The magic power of solo traveling!

This is why I started NomadHer. The very essence of NomadHer is to bring out that Nomad who is lost somewhere and is scared to take that journey by herself. It can be the story of Aysha, Rosa, Helene, or Dahee whoever you are from which parts of the world, NomadHer is for you to make assure that there is this much woman in the world who are traveling and discovering the world.

If I did, You can do it.

NomadHer encourages solo female traveling as it allows women to confront themselves and go beyond their own limits. In truth, according to our own survey with over 1,000 female respondents, 90% of women responded that they have either traveled solo or are willing to do so. The whole idea of NomadHer is to bring this community of women together where they can connect with other female travelers and gain some insight into their upcoming travels and at the same time shed some light on their past travels.

Now. Are you ready for your new journey?
