Maple Leopard is a Travel and Fashion blog based in the Seattle area. This website specializes in solo/girl trip travel and destination style. It's also a community to share, grow and engage. I was raised in Vancouver B.C. and born in Medicine Hat Alberta . I love my Canadian roots, maple syrup, leopard prints and of course obsessed with traveling!

 I'm here to empower women in the middle years to experience the best of life by exploring the globe. On this site you'll find expert tips for the U.S, Canada and Europe.  

We work with travel/fashion brands and tourism boards, to encourage fun and unique adventures.  Maple Leopard reaches travelers all over the world.  We started blogging  in 2014 to share stories & tips to help women travelers make the most of a destination.
