Published on January 09, 2012
Traveling solo as a young woman can be both terrifying and exhilarating simultaneously. It's something to be taken seriously, as Sandy points out, but also as an opportunity to learn and grow. I totally agree about ear plugs - those have saved my sanity many times on the road! And I am definitely bringing a head lamp to Belize this Spring - maybe I can borrow Sandy's?
love this Sandy - on my bucket list to travel solo but haven't been able to check it off yet ... I'll definitely be printing off this puppy before shipping out!! :)
Love it! Nothing is more empowering than traveling abroad solo - male or female. Hopefully these tips will inspire many to book that ticket ...
As someone who has always fantasized about traveling around the world - sometimes solo, sometimes with a few girlfriends - I found this article extremely inspiring. For some reason (perhaps for obvious reasons) it's not widely accepted for women to travel alone. This article proves that it can be done. And what helpful tips.
