Ellen McDonough - Magical Places solo travel

Who am I?


I'm an artist who loves to travel to places I consider magical - uncommonly beautiful spots exuding a certain power and mystery; places of ancient mystical civilizations, echoing a time when the Earth's energies were pure.

Most of my traveling I do alone; I travel with people, too, but I find traveling solo to be a liberating experience which lifts me out of the confines of my day to day identity and beliefs about what is possible in life.

Although intended for any travel lover, I hope this site inspires other women to venture out alone as there is undeniable beauty and magic on the Earth just waiting to be enjoyed.
