Adrien Behn loves planting herself into thorny conversations. She finds herself most comfortable there.
She was a lost soul and a cliche after college and decided to pack her bags to travel the world. She has since traveled to 30+ countries as a solo female backpacker.
Along the way, Adrien accidentally found a way to unite her degrees in Psychology & Gender Studies with her love of storytelling through podcasting. She has self-produced her first podcast and blog Strangers Abroad.
Strangers Abroad is a series of conversations that Adrien had with the wonderful and weird people she met while backpacking throughout Latin America for 5 months, overlapped with her personal stories about being a woman who travels alone. She wants to encourage others, across cultures, to connect with themselves and the world through travel and believes that can be done best through storytelling.
Today, she continues to bounce around the world podcasting, writing, and sharing her stories with live audiences.
Message + Life Goals
She finds that the world often has more to teach us about ourselves and how the world actually works than staying in the familiarity of home. She has found that the conversations she has had with strangers have been just as impactful as the ones with her childhood friends. She wants to encourage a new generation to reach their full potential by being bold enough to break from the conventional path and experiment with who they are.
She desires to hit every country before she dies ( with modern medicine, she still has plenty of time).
