About Lauren Salisbury


Something In Her Ramblings is produced by Lauren Salisbury, a writer and solo traveler who has visited 39 countries and counting.

A California native, Lauren is a long time lover of Disneyland and the San Francisco Giants. Her parents inflicted her with the travel bug at an early age, taking her and her siblings Emma and Sean to 46 states on family road trips.

Adventurous and eager to see the world, Lauren started her journey as a woman solo traveler while studying journalism at the University of Maryland. She participated in an exchange program in Australia at RMIT University in Melbourne and backpacked solo up Australia’s East Coast.
