I’m Ioanna aka, A Woman Afoot: a 40+ woman, an educator passionate about hiking and camping alone.
I want to encourage more women - of every shape, color, age or sexual/gender identity - to hit the trails. Hiking is not just an adventure for straight white guys - it’s for all of us.
Thank you for your interest in my website. I do my best to provide high-quality content that could be helpful for any hikers - beginners or experts. I share with you reports from my hiking and camping trips, some advice and tips on backpacking, as well as a fair amount of musings on mental health, body-acceptance, feminism, women’s rights, and similar subjects dear to my heart.
I hope my articles will give you strength and tools to find your own way into the Great Outdoors. Click below to find out why hiking and hiking solo is so important to me:
