Solo Stories: True Stories of Women Traveling Alone

You might have settled on the idea of traveling by yourself because you couldn’t find a travel partner, but you’re just looking for a little insight from someone who’s done it already. You might be happy with the idea that you can travel by yourself, but maybe your parents won’t believe it’s possible until they hear from someone who made it home safely. After all, it’s all well and good to read guidebooks assuring that solo travel is safe for women – but how do you know those books weren’t written by men? You want to hear it from women who have been there, done that, and lived to tell the tale.

That’s where our fabulous women travelers come in.

Below, you’ll find links to articles written by women traveling solo who wouldn’t dream of traveling any other way. These stories address such issues as overcoming the fear of traveling solo in the first place, making life-long friends on the road, and even some of the scary things that can happen when you’re by yourself. It’s all a learning experience, and the stories these solo women travelers tell will help you prepare better for your own travels.
