Sóldís Alda

Travel blogger, fulltime traveler

Sóldís is a travel blogger from Iceland. She started traveling about 6 years ago, when she did a 6-week trip to Costa Rica which was her first introduction to backpacking. The next couple of years she went on multiple backpacking trips, mainly through Central and South America, while also finishing her degree in Business Administration and having a job in Iceland. She slowly realised that 9-5 life wasn't for her, she didn't want to spend my life in an office and instead wanted to have the freedom to be wherever she wanted to. This led her to quit her job in 2020 to pursue a life of traveling.
