About Nastasia

So much of the power travel carries comes from small, seemingly simple narratives that have the power to transcend borders, cultures, and time. Nastasia Yakoub dedicates her life to finding these narratives. Nastasia’s journey began as a nurse and after a life altering injury, she transitioned to a full- time traveler, author and photographer with an ambition to inspire and empower women.

She created Dame Traveler in 2014 with a vision to break molds and challenge convention, seeking to represent and empower women in a myriad of ways, many of which relate to travel in some capacity.

Nastasia has traveled to over 70 countries and has over 600,000 followers on Instagram where she shares her journeys and the journeys of other women in her community with the world through stunning imagery and content. Nastasia’s motivation behind @dametraveler stems from her commitment to her global community where women step outside their comfort zone and see more of the world.

About Dame Traveler

Dame Traveler is a women’s travel blog featuring stories, curated destination / hotel guides, travel accessory round-ups, and tips for travel geared towards women.

As the very first female travel community on Instagram, we strive to celebrate the diversity and bravery of women traveling the world, while also providing them with the tools and resources to do so safely. To this day, Dame Traveler remains the most well known and respected female-identifying travel community on Instagram, and has been featured in high caliber platforms ranging from the Business Insider to VOGUE and more.

I chose the name Dame Traveler because we wanted to exemplify strength, fearlessness and courage. When a female travels solo, she throws caution to the wind and she trusts the universe to protect her while she uses her instincts to make smart decisions. And so, this is where you come in! We cant wait to see what you have in store for us to share with the world.

Thank you for visiting, and don’t be afraid to say hello!
