solo travel female blog

Kiersten is a Californian who left her corporate career to make her globetrotting dreams a reality. Since then, she has managed to tour over 50 countries in 6 continents and cross out a bunch of things from her bucket list. She has interestingly turned The Blonde Abroad —which features tons of resources for the solo female traveler—from a personal travel diary into one of her biggest sources of income.

Kiersten’s blog focuses on luxury travel tips but occasionally dabbles in backpacking and travel photography. Her content is more guide-like and less like a memoir, and is filled with golden tips in various subjects such as staying healthy while traveling, places to see in various destinations, and cuisines worth trying at every location she has been to. Her blog post 20 Trips to Take in Your 20s is like a map of incredible destinations that every first-time traveler should absolutely visit in their lifetime.

#2 Ashley Abroad: Solo Female Travel & Travel Tips

solo travel female blog

From backpacking through Europe, India, and Asia for a whole year to occasionally burying herself in books, Ashley’s interests are diverse. However, her love for traveling has equipped her with essential experience and expansive knowledge in the nuances of being a solo female traveler.

She has written extensively about what it is like to live in Africa, among other places, and is one of the few bloggers out there with the chops to teach others how to balance a full-time job with a life on the open road. Her mostly practical travel blog consists of articles on things like the best shoes to wear when traveling to tips on becoming an au pair in different countries as a way of making some extra cash. She had however dedicated most of her blog to making the life of the solo traveler much easier by providing insightful tips such as in her article; 12 Travel Accessories That Drastically Improve L ong-Term Travel .

#3 Pearls and Passports: Solo Female Travel Blog

solo travel female blog

Stephanie put the brakes on her successful career as a podiatrist, overcame her fears about traveling solo, and became an inspiration to many solo female travelers who have since borrowed a page or two from her.

Her blog is a recollection of her journey as she travels and occasionally backpacks through destinations in Africa, Asia, Europe, and Oceania. She describes her experiences at a number of the places she’s been to with writing that is full of warmth and also detailed richly to give her readers a sense of being there with her. Her posts—far from being of the run-of-the-mill variety—invite the reader to look at these destinations from a new perspective and in a way that excellently portrays things that can only be experienced by someone who has visited those places. Her blog also serves as a useful tool for travelers looking to book accommodations beforehand.

A Dangerous Experiences is a solo female travel blog centered on her slightly offbeat experiences as she travels to epic destinations. Her homey descriptions of the places she’s been to outline a major (possibly life-changing) experience she’s had at every destination, such as her nail-biting experience on a mountainside in Iceland.

More than anything, this blog is about getting over the travel jitters any first-time solo female traveler might have about chasing their dreams. True to form, Bucket List Journey is simply a long list of things Annette wishes to do in her lifetime, a fair amount of which have already been checked off.

Michela paints the Australian outback in colors you’ve never seen before in this useful guide for the solo traveler exploring Australia. Born in Italy, she discovered her natural affinity for learning foreign languages which, by the age of 35, had made her fluent in German, English, Italian, and Spanish.

Did you know that I’m actually half Mauritian? I’ve luckily been able to visit Mauritius a few times over the years and it holds a special place in my heart. I’ve recently returned from the most incredible trip to Marrakech, Morocco, and have previously visited Agadir. I hope to travel more of Africa in the future and will definitely be creating more posts so watch this space.

My favourite continent by far – Asia is a land that spells freedom for me. It was the first place I ever travelled solo. The first step into my new life. I’ve been travelling all my life, but Asia was a place that captivated me like nowhere else had before. Plan a two week holiday or a year’s backpacking trip – check out my Asia destination guides and trip planning itineraries. From the beaches of Thailand to the temples of Cambodia. Swim the waterfalls of Laos, dine on the best street food in Vietnam, explore the streets of Kuala Lumpur or swim with sea turtles in Indonesia. Fancy getting off the beaten track? Sri Lanka is the country for you – a little piece of my heart was left behind. Let me help you with planning the ultimate trip to Asia.

There’s some countries that just connect with your soul and Australia was definitely that country for me. I spent two years over there on an Australian working holiday visa – and it’s an experience I would recommend to everyone. During my two years, I found myself living the longest in Darwin and Melbourne which both became my home twice. I also travelled up the entire East Coast from New South Wales to Queensland during my first year. In my second year, I road tripped and wild camped up Western Australia to the Northern Territory – starting in Perth and finishing in Darwin. I also spent a month road tripping Tasmania and paid a quick visit to Adelaide. My absolute highlights were exploring national parks across the West Coast and Northern Territory, and around Victoria. Find posts on preparing for wild camping, planning the ultimate Australia road trip and living in the outback and scoring second year “farm work”.

Climb aboard the Central America express and prepare for one heck of a colourful adventure with Absolutely Lucy. By far one of my favourite continents to explore – it’s been a magical blend of jungle, beach and desert along the way. Visit Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. From snorkelling and ocean cruising around national parks, to all the tacos you can eat, music festivals and much more. Climb ancient Mayan ruins, volcanos and jump into crystal clear lakes. Central America, you absolute wonder.

Escape with Absolutely Lucy on a European adventure. Whether it’s a weekend city break, a long summer holiday or perhaps even an epic road trip or Interrail. Get off the beaten track in Slovenia or explore alpine lakes in Austria and Switzerland. Get away from the crowds and visit Liechtenstein and tick off the 6th smallest country in the world. Summer holiday in Malta, Greece, Italy or Portugal and top up that tan. Or head to Ibiza and dance until the sun comes up. I’ve got everything from European music festivals to travelling by campervan to hotel hopping from city to city. There are so many amazing options when travelling Europe and it’s the perfect place for a solo female travel adventure.

North America is a huge area of the world and one that I haven’t explored as much as I would have liked. But the parts I have been lucky enough to visit, I’ve created guides plus lots of inspiration posts for helping you to plan your own trips. Posts in this section centre around everyone’s favourite US destination – New York. Plus, I’ve got a range of posts from my most recent trip to Mexico and my road trip with a friend over there. Canada is big on my bucket list, and I can’t wait until I get to go over there and explore properly. But in the meantime, I’ve worked with top brands to create a range of blog posts to inspire your fly-drive trips, road trips and dream holidays over there.

By far the most long-awaited continent I have visited. With plans of spending months exploring Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Bolivia and many more. Unfortunately, my trip was cut short due to the panny-d. I had just arrived in Cartagena, Colombia, when the borders started to close and Central & South America went into lockdown. Luckily I made it back to the UK safely – but sadly it has meant my trip has been postponed until a later date. Watch this space for upcoming content.

I’ve always been very lucky to come from a beautiful part of the world – the North Norfolk coast. Growing up, I had some of the best beaches in the UK and some amazing forests just down the road. Over the years I’ve loved enjoying city breaks in London, York, Cambridge, Norwich and Brighton. Some of my favourite things to do are find amazing places to eat including London food markets, heading to UK music festivals or taking a road trip across the UK. Now that I have the camper van, my forays across the UK are more focused on wild swimming spots, best places for vanlife and campervan trips, plus hiking guides and exploring national parks.

Come skydiving with me to celebrate my 30th birthday! I promised myself I wouldn't turn 30 without completing a skydive – now I always dreamed it would happen in New Zealand part way through a working holiday visa. But sadly a pandemic happened and it wasn't meant to be. But, I'm never going to let anything stop me from achieving my dreams. So it might be two years later than expected, but I finally got to do the skydive of my dreams with UK Parachuting at Sibson Airfield near Wandsworth in Peterborough. We jumped from 13,000ft and travelled at a speed of 120mph through the air over one of the oldest drop zones in the country! I think you can tell from my reaction how much I enjoyed it and before I had even touched the ground I already knew I would be doing another. The question is – where should I do the next skydive? Would you like to do a skydive? For those who are new to this channel, I'm Lucy, a solo female travel blogger from the UK, who loved adventure travel, music festivals and vanlife.

[ad press trip] This trip was a press trip with United Airlines, Travel Up and the Boston Tourism Board. There was so much to cram in that I've split it across two vlogs – here's Part 1 - enjoy! From those beautiful fall colours at Boston Common and visiting Fenway Park – home of the Red Sox, to tasting the famous lobster rolls and fresh oysters the city is known for. We explored art, culture, heritage and history as we walked the streets of Boston, USA, and even took to the water for a "Duck Tour" around the harbour. If you've ever wanted to visit Boston – I've found the best things to do in Boston and have written a guide to the best 22, including tips on how to travel there and where to stay. Check out my blog post for a full itinerary and where we stayed: https://absolutelylucy.com/22-best-things-to-do-in-boston-usa/ Don't forget to LIKE and SUBSCRIBE if you want to see more videos from me :-) For those who are new to this channel, I'm Lucy, a solo female travel blogger from the UK, who loved adventure travel, music festivals and vanlife.

I’m back with Solo Travel Diary #2 - and this time I’m exploring Salzburg in Austria! Join me for a day out around the city! I clocked up over 22,000 steps wandering around, so make sure you pack comfortable shoes 👟 It was a bit of a rainy start to the day but I refused to let it get me down! I got the @visitsalzburg Salzburg Card which gives you free / discounted entry to attractions across the city - you can get them for 24/48/72 hours so you only buy what you’ll use. I got the 24 hour card which costs €28 - cheaper than entry to 1+ attraction if paid for individually. You can also buy it online and use a digital version. My day’s itinerary for Salzburg, Austria 🇦🇹 🌟 Take the funicular up to the Fortress Hohensalzburg & visit the observation deck 🏔️ (free with Salzburg Card) 🌟 Brunch at @coolinarik_cafe 😍 🌟 Take a city cruise (free with Salzburg Card) 🌟 Visit Salzburg Cathedral (discounted so €3.50 to pay) 🌟 Stand in the room where Mozart was born (free with SC) 🌟 Wander Mirabell Palace gardens where the Sound of Music was filmed (FREE) 🌟 Visit the Katacomben Petersfriedhof (free with SC) 🌟 Take the Mönchsberg Elevator to the museum for more views (free with SC) 🌟 Pop into @darwins_salzburg for a drink 🌟 Sunset drinks at @arte.hotel.salzburg @hugoes14_rooftopbar 😍 🌟 Dinner @ichigoichie_ramen 🍜 Now that’s a busyyy day so you could easily split this across two days if you prefer a slower pace 😉 Would you like to visit Salzburg?

5 tips to make dining alone less awkward when travelling solo 🍜 - one of the questions I get asked the most! I love eating out alone, I honestly think it’s one of my fave things to do when solo travelling! But I know it wasn’t always this way, and for many it can be the most difficult part ❤️ so here’s some tried and tested tips to help you take the first steps towards being a confident solo diner! 1. Choose a less formal option like street food, food markets or sit at the bar/in the window to people watch 2. Don’t eat at peak times - you’ll feel wayyy more conspicuous and if it’s busy you’re less likely to get a table as a solo traveller 3. Why not book a food experience like a street food tour, cooking class or tasting? That way you’re more likely to meet people and even if you don’t, it’s a special experience you’ve booked for you! 4. Take some time for you!! Dining alone can be an amazing experience if you allow it to be. Reclaim the time for you and use it to plan your travels, write a blog, read a book or something… 5. Be open! If anyone is looking at you, it’s more likely because they’re curious about this confident, mysterious woman dining alone. Smile, say hi. I’ve literally had bottles of wine bought for me this way and made random new pals 🤣 you never know what might happen! How do you feel about eating out alone when travelling solo? Love it or hate it??

Join me for a travel day mini-vlog ✈️ 👀 Solo travel diary #1 - travelling from the UK to Salzburg, Austria 🇦🇹 The easiest little travel day ever, and a lovely reminder of so many reasons I love travelling by myself 😍 🌟 I always whiz through security when I’m travelling alone! Today was a new record of four minutes from end to end 😮 when I travel with people I pretty much ALWAYS get stopped and searched 😩 🌟 I always feel crazy inspired sitting alone and working in an airport with a glass of bubbles and a view of the planes ✈️ 🌟 I’ve finished an audiobook and a book today - absolutely steaming through my reading list 📚 🌟 People are so friendly! I’ve made so many friends on this journey - people who wouldn’t bother to chat and laugh if I was travelling with other people! 🗣️ 🌟 I just sat in a beautiful silence listening to people chatting in different languages and watching the sun set over the mountains with a glass of wine and it was heavenly to be so present 😍 What do you think of my mini-vlog? Would you guys like more of these?

Adventurous Kate

At age 26, Kate quit her job to travel Southeast Asia for six months. Six months turned into five years, spanning more than 65 countries. If there's an adventure out there, she will go for it. Kate started her blog to show what it is like for women to travel solo. She believes it is best to teach by example, and her ultimate goal is to show women that independent and solo travel can be safe, easy, and a lot of fun.

Hey Nadine

If Nadine's face looks familiar, you may have seen her talking travel on her popular YouTube channel, Hey Nadine . She has traveled to 49 countries over the last six years, and her experiences have been recorded and documented across her blog and YouTube channel. Her videos are fun, light-hearted, and often include a side of humor to keep you smiling. In December of 2014, Nadine was invited to the White House as one of the Top 130 most influential travel bloggers and digital media outlets to attend the White House Travel Blogger Summit on Study Abroad and Global Citizenship.

3. Kiersten Rich Of   the blonde abroad

The Blonde Abroad

After graduating with honors and getting a job at a prestigious financial firm in LA, Kiersten realized she was living someone else's dream and needed to escape the corporate routine. She left her career to travel the world, volunteer in developing countries, and discover her own happily ever after. Since then, she has traveled to 50 countries and hopes to inspire others to live a life they love and settle for nothing less than extraordinary. 

4. Annette White Of bucket list journey

Annette White

After getting a handle on a case of severe anxiety, Annette made a promise to herself to not let fear make decisions for her. As a result, she started saying yes instead of no to opportunities that presented themselves. That promise, along with her dedication to start living her bucket list, led her to making travel a second career. She has been on Safari through Africa, eaten insects in Thailand , zip-lined through the Costa Rican rain forest, swam with pigs in the Bahamas, bathed elephants at a recuse in Chiang Rai... the (bucket) list goes on! 

5. Amanda Williams Of   a dangerous business

A Dangerous Business

As a kid, growing up on a Christmas Tree farm in a small, Ohio town didn't provide Amanda with much excitement. It wasn't until high school that she decided she wanted to travel, and a Lord of the Rings obsession is what let her to New Zealand after graduation. Since then, she has been to more than 45 countries and is always on the lookout for her next adventure. Amanda is a strong believer that when it comes to travel, there's no right or wrong way to do it. She's never given up on her "normal" life to travel long term and wants others to see that they don't have to quit their job or leave their loved ones behind in order to be a traveler. She hopes her blog and her stories will help convince you of that!

6. JUNO KIM Of runaway juno

Runaway Juno

Born and raised in Seoul, South Korea , Juno says leaving her job as a mechanical engineer to become a full-time travel blogger was one of the most difficult decisions that she ever made. As a Korean who grew up in a conservative household, her career departure created enough shock to change everything in her life, including her relationship with her own family. Fast forward to now, and after six years of full-time travel, Juno says she has grown. She has a deeper understanding of people now that she would have never learned if she stayed at home working as an engineer. Her travels also helped her grow to respect her own culture and realize the importance of family.

7. Dani Heinrich Of   globetrotter girls

Globetrotter Girls

In the middle of a long, grey British winter, Dani decided to break free and fly to Las Vegas on the first leg of what she thought would be a year-long trip around the world. Seven years later, and this one-year trip turned into a global exploration without an end date. Having lived in Austria, Spain, and England, Dani combines months of rapid travel with longer stays, living as a local wherever she can. She shares stories related to what it's like to be a gay or lesbian traveler, and also publishes guest posts by fellow LGBTQ travelers who share their travel stories and experiences as well. Her mission is to inspire curiosity about the world and provide the tips and tools to help you see as much of the world as you can for yourself.

8. Alexandra Baackes Of Alex in Wanderland

Alex In Wanderland

Alex in Wanderland was created in 2009 as a means for Alex to document her two month trip to Southeast Asia. The night before she left, she cried; terrified over the thought of eating dinner alone, getting lost in the airport, and having her camera stolen. That summer, she fell head-over-flip-flops in love with the adrenaline of travel and realized that there are truly people out there living the nomadic lifestyle that she thought only existed in her head. In 2011, Alex left New York to travel full time, and she has not had a permanent address since. There's no date, no itinerary, no real backup plan. Just adventure, adrenaline, and a lifetime of globe-trotting daydreams to fulfill.

9. Sherry Ott Of   otts world

Otts World

Otts World is Sherry's journey from traditional cubicle to travel writer and digital nomad. She quit her corporate IT job in 2006, with the original intention of simply taking a year-long career break. In this time, Sherry traveled to 23 countries, finding a new and exciting world outside her office walls. Her eyes were opened to possibilities and the beauty of simplicity, so she sold all her possessions and relocated to Vietnam where she supported herself through teaching ESL, selling photography, and started working at building a blogging presence. Sherry is currently in her mid 40's and has spent over a decade living out of a suitcase with no permanent address since 2006. 

10. Liz Carlson Of young adventuress

Young Adventuress

Liz started her travel blog back in 2010 when she was getting ready to move to Spain to teach English and procrastinate on life. She lived on and off in Spain for over three years (Salamanca, Córdoba, and La Rioja) before learning that being a professional travel blogger was actually a thing. This prompted her move back into her parent's attic outside of Washington D.C. to work for a year, build out her blog properly, find work online, and save money. After having saved up enough, Liz walked into her boss' office, quit her job, moved to New Zealand and began full-time blogging. It is here that she developed a deep and abiding love for men in stubbies and gumboots. She hasn't been deported yet and hasn't looked back since!

Solo Travel for Women

For your next solo adventure, consider exploring waterfalls in Iceland, rice fields in Indonesia, beaches in Thailand and more.

Perhaps you have a bucket list of places you've always wanted to travel at the ready but you just keep waiting for the right person to go with you. But if your friends are busy, you just broke up with your partner and you're not feeling a family vacation, you don't have to wait to embark on a new adventure – just go solo .

Traveling by yourself, even as a woman, is not as challenging or scary as you might think. There are plenty of benefits: You don't have to adhere to anyone else's schedule, budget or food preferences, so you can truly prioritize yourself. Solo travel means doing whatever you want whenever you want, while seeing the places that you most want to visit. Adventuring alone as a woman can empower you to see the world on your terms.

Whether you're concerned about safety or seeking companionship, there are plenty of places around the globe to consider for your next solo trip. U.S. News has compiled this list of top solo travel destinations (and helpful tips) with expertise from women who have traversed the globe by themselves and loved it.

Barcelona, Spain

solo travel female blog

With a visit to Barcelona , immerse yourself in the local culture at your leisure, whether you want to dine at Michelin-starred restaurants or go cheer at a football (soccer) game. Writer Mona Gable says, "Barcelona is a place of wonder − medieval neighborhoods, sunny beaches, and world-class museums, not to mention Antoni Gaudí's celebrated architecture." She enjoyed exploring the Mediterranean port city, especially because of its walkability and easy-to-navigate transportation system with metro lines and buses. She also noted feeling safe on her own: "As a female traveler, I felt perfectly at ease wandering many neighborhoods alone, even at late hours, when Catalans famously dine out."

Travel tip: Gable says it's best to avoid touristy Las Ramblas – Barcelona's main thoroughfare – except to see La Boqueria, the city's legendary food market.

African elephant (Loxodonta africana) Calves playing. Okovango Delta, Botswana

Botswana is well known for African wildlife safaris , where travelers might encounter elephants, zebras, rhinos, lions and cheetahs while glamping in luxury tents and dining on gourmet food. "Wildlife travel offers an outstanding combination of camaraderie, safety and autonomy," says Darcie Smith, owner of Great Expeditions Travel . She recommends Botswana's green season (November to March) for solo female travelers; at this time of year the single supplement surcharge is waived at many safari camps, which offers an excellent value and means you're more likely to meet other solo travelers. It is also peak season for birding, and you'll find plenty of opportunities to spot wildlife in the lush landscape.

Many camps will send someone to meet guests upon arrival to help you navigate airports or transfers. In Smith's experience, camp guests are also escorted to their rooms at night, for an added wildlife safety element. "Solo female travelers can enjoy daily shared safari activities in intimate camps that encourage social gatherings with full independence to design the itinerary around what's best for you," she says.

Travel tip: Smith recommends making your social media accounts private when you travel so strangers can't track your location as well as learning about the customs of your destination. "This will help avoid accidentally coming across as forward or flirtatious based on local standards," she explains. "For example, while long eye contact may be considered a sign of self-confidence or being polite at home, it may come across as flirtatious in your new destination."

Picture yourself indulging in pizza and gelato, visiting world-famous museums, touring picturesque wineries, and shopping at designer boutiques – all of that is at your fingertips in Italy , writer Martha McCully's go-to travel destination. "Italians want to share their culture and it's part of their personality to welcome you," she says. "Plus, the food and wine are outrageously divine."

The idea that traveling solo means you will be alone is a misconception, according to McCully. "It's simply not true," she says. "Book a group tour at your destination, or DM a friend from your past on Instagram, which is what I did in Bologna." There are plenty of unique ways to meet fellow travelers in Italy; she recommends signing up for a cooking class in Bologna through Taste of Italy, a food tour by Curious Appetite or a painting class with Plein Air Tuscany. "The idea is you will be with like-minded travelers and someone else is doing all the organizing," McCully explains.

Travel tip: McCully suggests sticking to your wellness routine while on the road to keep healthy habits. "I like to take my rituals with me," she says. "When I ground myself with what I know makes me feel good physically and mentally, it's like I'm living in another country, not just visiting."

With glaciers, volcanoes, waterfalls and hot springs galore, the dramatic landscapes of Iceland make it a must-visit destination. The "Land of Fire and Ice" is also known for puffins, its Viking history and women's empowerment, with the country's reputation as a champion of gender equality.

"Iceland is a favorite destination for female solo travelers because it is easily one of the safest countries in the world," says Jenny Ly, professional travel blogger at Go Wanderly . Iceland has one of the world's lowest crime rates and no animal predators dangerous to humans – just prepare for challenging weather and exercise caution if you plan to do any driving. Ly's itinerary recommendations include whale watching, with nearly a dozen types of whales navigating Icelandic waters; visiting Vatnajökull Glacier's ice caves; and chasing the northern lights in the darker months (October to April).

Travel tip: Ly encourages solo female travelers to not let the lack of a travel companion prevent them from exploring the world. "It can be both empowering and rewarding for women to travel solo, at least once in their life," she says. "While traveling alone can be riskier than traveling with others, it can also be more fun and gratifying." Her tip is to always be aware of your surroundings.

San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

solo travel female blog

While some women may shy away from traveling to Mexico due to safety concerns, travel blogger Jeanine Romo of lewildexplorer.com , who has ventured solo to many countries, recommends visiting the charming town of San Miguel de Allende . "I decided to go on my own and had such a wonderful time," she says. "The people are friendly, the hospitality is amazing, and there are so many things to do if you love art, incredible food, and incredible architecture." San Miguel de Allende is a great option for women travelers because the city center is easily walkable and Uber is available, which Romo says made her feel safe because she could always call a ride.

Travel tip: For women traveling by themselves, Romo advises doing research on transportation options (such as local buses, metro lines and ride-sharing app availability) before you arrive. "I like to know how walkable the city I'm visiting is," says Romo. "This helps me feel so much more confident when navigating a new city."

New Zealand

solo travel female blog

From pristine beaches on the North Island to snowy mountains on the South Island – and all kinds of geological wonders in between – the diversity of New Zealand is a major draw for tourists. Travelers can learn about the indigenous Māori culture, visit a sheep farm or go sailing in Auckland , among an abundance of other incredible things to do in this island nation.

Travel blogger Nina Ragusa of whereintheworldisnina.com enjoys visiting because of the welcoming culture, outdoor adventure and feeling of safety. "Traveling New Zealand as a solo woman is quite easy, and if it's your first trip solo, this would be a good country to start in," she says. Ragusa spent a month camping in a van by herself and said she never had to worry about her safety, even in more remote areas. "I went on hikes solo, some of them deep into the mountains for miles and miles, and was either alone or passing other tourists or friendly kiwis to wave hello to," she says. Ragusa adds that New Zealand is not the cheapest travel destination, but her personal recommendation for saving money on longer trips here is to rent – or buy and later sell – a van to live in.

Travel tip: Ragusa recommends steering clear of the outskirts of the bigger cities (particularly if you do travel by van). She warns that, as in most urban destinations around the world, those parts of New Zealand are where you're more likely to run into trouble.

El Calafate, Patagonia, Argentina

For an outdoor adventure in South America, Argentine Patagonia offers pristine ice hiking, backpacking, kayaking, trekking and wildlife viewing. Nicol Gillum-Thomas, an African-American solo female traveler whose mission is to encourage women to live life as an adventure, enjoyed her time in the town of El Calafate. "El Calafate, Argentina, was the destination that seemed the most off-putting in my imagination, but became the trip with the most adventure, awe-inspiring beauty and ease," she says.

Travel tip: Gillum-Thomas recommends a stay at the América del Sur Hostel Calafate, saying she appreciated the clean accommodations and interesting guests.

Dubrovnik, Croatia

The Old City of Dubrovnik situated on the Dalmatian coast, became an important Mediterranean sea power from the 13th century onwards. Although severely damaged by an earthquake in 1667, Dubrovnik managed to preserve its beautiful Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque churches, monasteries, palaces and fountains. Damaged again in the 1990s by armed conflict, it is now the focus of a major restoration programme co-ordinated by UNESCO. Clinging to a rock, encased by a girdle of ramparts and lapped by a turquoise sea, Croatia’s famous town is fully worthy of its title “Pearl of the Adriatic”.

If you dream of a getaway that includes picturesque beaches and crystal-clear water, Croatia is the perfect spot to explore. In Dubrovnik , the ancient city walls and medieval architecture of Old Town , a UNESCO World Heritage Site, set a particularly gorgeous scene when the sun goes down. Tamara Williams, owner of solo female travel-focused blog My Elated Odyssey , says the unmatched beauty of the surrounding sea and mountains is only one reason to plan a trip here.

"The locals are some of the nicest people I have ever met," Williams says. "They truly made it feel like a second home. They spoke English well, so no need to worry about a language barrier." She adds that this Balkan country is also considerably more affordable than destinations in Western Europe.

Travel tip: For solo female travelers, Williams suggests staying in the Lapad neighborhood or near Old Town. "Both are full of cafes, bars and shopping to keep you busy," she says.

Svalbard, Norway

Polar Bear (Ursus maritimus) sniffs air while walking on rocky shore of Malmgren Island on foggy evening. | Location: Malmgren Island, Svalbard, Norway.

You can't go wrong in Norway , with breathtaking fjords, fascinating wildlife, scenic railways, outdoor adventure and the chance to glimpse the northern lights . Jurga Rubinovaite, founder of the travel blog Full Suitcase , says you won't want to miss Svalbard: a Norwegian archipelago located approximately 800 miles from the North Pole. "It is one of the most unique nature destinations in the world," she says. "Despite being so far north in the Arctic, it's extremely easy to visit and is also a great and safe destination for solo female travelers."

The main town, Longyearbyen, is the focal point of activities in Svalbard, which range from hiking and boat tours in the summer to winter pursuits such as ice cave visits and snowmobiling. "Because of the presence of polar bears, everything you do in Svalbard requires booking a guided tour, so you are always in safe hands," Rubinovaite explains. "Longyearbyen town itself is very lively and safe, with lots of accommodations, restaurants, shops, and a few museums, all within easy walking distance from each other."

Travel tip: For women traveling alone, Rubinovaite advises thorough research in advance of your trip to this Arctic locale; staying in hotels, rather than private accommodations; and booking guided tours or looking for a travel buddy when venturing out to very remote places.

Ireland, County Clare, Lahinch: tourist gazing at the majestic Cliffs of Moher at sunset in late spring.

Head to Ireland for a memorable solo getaway complete with rolling emerald-green hills, fairytale castles and Irish coffee. Experienced traveler Kelie Fiala of the Vacations Planned blog ranks this European country at the top of her list for solo travel spots. "Many attractions in Ireland are wonderful for solo travelers because they offer peaceful spots to stop and enjoy the gorgeous views, but also provide plenty of opportunities to meet friendly people at cafes and other points of interest," she says.

Fiala appreciates the nightlife and music scene of Ireland as much as the history and scenery. She suggests experiencing some of the country's pubs, even if you're a woman traveling alone, since you'll almost always find live music and friendly people. "Even if you start out by yourself, you'll easily find that you're having great conversations in no time," she says.

Travel tip: Fiala warns that for solo travelers, especially women, it's best to be careful how much you drink and leave the situation if you ever feel uncomfortable. But she also encourages women to not be afraid to have a chat. "You could hear some great stories, and make a new friend," she says.

Thai traditional wooden longtail boat and beautiful sand Railay Beach in Krabi province. Ao Nang, Thailand.

Beautiful beaches, delicious food, friendly people, exotic animals and floating markets are just some of the incredible things that you can experience in Thailand . Loredana Gogoescu, head of content for Destguides.com , says she felt safe in Thailand as soon as she arrived. "Thai people are hospitable and kind," she says. "Moreover, as a solo traveler, I was surprisingly never alone. I had to book a private room for myself at one point just to get a breather, as I was constantly meeting new people!"

Travel tip: If you're apprehensive about exploring a new place on your own, especially if you've never traveled abroad before, Gogoescu recommends sorting out all the logistics like accommodations and transportation in advance so it's easier to acclimate once you get there. She adds, "If you're afraid of being alone, join different apps like Bumble and Facebook groups for the destination you're traveling to, to see if you can match up with other solo female travelers who will be in the area at the same time as you."

Netherlands

Amsterdam buildings at sunrise

Nailah Hayward of TheresSoMuchToSee.com says the Netherlands is a superb option for first-time solo female travelers, based on ease of transportation, overall safety, the variety of things to do and other factors. "The Netherlands comes out high on all of these areas," she says. "And after multiple visits to the country, traveling through big cities and small towns, I always felt extremely safe." With the country's extensive train system, in addition to local trams and bike lanes, navigating the Netherlands by yourself doesn't pose too great a burden. Hayward also appreciates the ease of communicating with locals as an English speaker, since most people speak English in addition to Dutch.

"Whether you are into the arts scene, outdoor activities, luxury experiences, cultural exploration or culinary delights, the Netherlands has a huge variety of activities to dive into," Hayward says. "All of these elements make the Netherlands a place that I enthusiastically recommend for solo women travelers."

Travel tip: Don't carry cash. Hayward says most transactions can be done electronically, so there's no need for frequent trips to the ATM.

Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands

solo travel female blog

Luxury family travel influencer Irina Claire Bromberg suggests Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands as a top spot for solo female travel, partially because of its high safety rating from the U.S. Department of State. There's also no shortage of activities in this Caribbean destination, with Bromberg calling Stingray City a must. "The stingrays are peaceful and gentle," she says. "They glide along the ocean floor and you're free to observe and even play with them in their natural habitat." She also recommends soaking up some sun at the renowned Seven Mile Beach .

Grand Cayman is also a foodie paradise, according to Bromberg. "The vibrant dishes are as tasty as they are exciting, representing the fascinating mix of cultures and traditions that make the island so unique," she says. Her suggestions for food to try include the classic Cayman-style lobster, coconut shrimp and Johnny cakes.

Travel tip: Bromberg recommends checking the U.S. Department of State safety rating and other solo travelers' experiences prior to booking a trip.

Tips on Trips and Expert Picks

Travel tips, vacation ideas and more to make your next vacation stellar.

View of the Galata Tower and The Suleymaniye Mosque at dusk in Istanbul, Turkey

Chart your course for Istanbul , the only city in the world that straddles two continents, Europe and Asia. This anomaly is one of many features making the Turkish city stand out as a unique destination; you'll get to experience its Byzantine architecture, Ottoman cuisine and landmarks like the Grand Bazaar on a trip here. Farihah Fuaad, a Muslim solo travel expert and founder of MuslimSoloTravel.com , says, "It offers the best of both worlds – East and West, Europe and Asia, modern and ancient – and lots of surprises." This lively, fast-paced metropolis is also rich in history and culture, with remnants of bygone eras visible in the skyline of Istanbul, according to Fuuad.

For solo travelers, there are endless opportunities for memorable experiences. "Wherever you go in Istanbul, multiple surprises await you at the corner of every street, its cobblestone alleys, or within the maze-like structure in Grand Bazaar," Fuaad says. The network of easy and convenient public transportation options also makes Istanbul a great choice for women traveling solo.

Travel tip: For first-time solo female travelers, Fuaad suggests taking time to adjust to being on your own: "Start small, by venturing to your next neighboring town or city first, or any city in your country first before you make the leap into solo traveling abroad." She adds, "Don't do things you're not comfortable with. Listen to your gut feelings – they're always right!"

Bali, Indonesia

solo travel female blog

For a tropical island escape, Bali is undeniably magical. Its natural beauty spans volcanoes, waterfalls and stunning beaches, as well as sprawling rice fields, diverse nightlife and breathtaking temples. Katie Caf, travel blogger at KatieCafTravel.com , who has been traveling solo full time for the past year and a half, says Bali is by far her favorite place to visit. "The Balinese people are very respectful towards female travelers, there's no street harassment based on gender like you might find in other locations, and while no place is perfect, Bali just feels very safe as a woman," Caf says. She adds that, although Indonesia is a conservative country, she found that women traveling there aren't expected to cover up except in temples or other sacred religious sites.

Travel tip: Caf recommends that travelers always use ride-sharing apps like Uber, Gojek and Grab rather than hailing cabs off the street, since the apps' tracking features make them much safer to use for solo female travelers in foreign countries. Some of these sites also allow you to share your route with chosen contacts for added safety.

Young woman tourist in sun hat and white dress standing in front of Eiffel Tower in Paris at sunset. Travel in France, tourism concept. High quality photo

Paris is one of the most iconic destinations in Europe for any traveler. Antoinette Harris, founder and owner of travel blog Frolic & Courage , considers the "City of Love" a superb option for women traveling solo due to its cuisine, cultural attractions and hands-on activities of all sorts. "I consider Paris the city of self-love because it has everything solo women travelers need to care for themselves and their interests," Harris says.

With the flexibility of traveling on your own, you can plan the Paris trip of your dreams. Depending on what you're interested in, you may choose to learn about French cooking, immerse yourself in the Louvre , attend an opera at the historic Palais Garnier or browse local shops, as Harris has done. "Uninhibited by the demands or requests of others, I was able to really take the time to focus on who I am, what I wanted and what sparks joy and life in my spirit," she says. "Traveling to Paris taught me how to truly enjoy spending time solo."

Travel tip: One of Harris' top tips is to not bring more than you can carry, as you won't always find someone to help you with your luggage if an escalator breaks and you have to take the stairs. "By keeping only the essentials, you're able to move quickly to and from your destination without worrying too much about being a target for crime," Harris says. She also recommends downloading an offline map you can reference even without internet connection and sharing your itinerary with family members or friends who could help in a sticky situation.

New York City

solo travel female blog

It's hard to beat the allure of the twinkling lights of Times Square , award-winning Broadway shows and Lady Liberty . Melanie Musson, a travel expert with AutoInsurance.org , loves taking a solo trip to New York City , saying she doesn't even have the chance to feel lonely because the hustle and bustle of the big city keeps her sufficiently distracted.

Musson says that, while there are risks for visitors in any city, the odds of anything scary happening to you in New York are low as long as you take appropriate precautions. "New York City prioritizes tourist safety because they know they’d lose this valuable industry if visitors had frequent bad experiences," she explains, adding that you may be surprised how friendly the local residents are. "They're usually happy to help you identify the right subway line to take or bus to catch. They'll probably even give you tips on the best places to eat or things to see."

Travel tip: Musson's pre-trip tip is to check crime reports in the destination you're heading to and stay within the safe areas. "Trust your gut and get out of the area if you don't feel safe," she cautions.

The city of Singapore is known for being clean, green and safe for travelers – as well as expensive. Singapore boasts impressive architecture, the iconic Singapore sling cocktail, street food markets and luxury shopping malls. Daina Cohen, editor at WorldlyKnown.com , says, "Singapore is a fantastic destination for solo women travelers because of its vibrant, yet safe culture and exciting sights." On a solo trip to this Southeast Asian city, you can experience the unique blend of diverse cultures and cuisines, Cohen says, in addition to other benefits. "It's easy to navigate with plenty of public transportation options, plus an excellent healthcare system, which makes it a great choice for those who want to travel solo," Cohen notes. Tourists should research Singapore's laws – such as a ban on chewing gum – before traveling there to avoid fines.

Travel tip: Cohen advises staying in a hostel (which often have options for women-only dorms) or renting an Airbnb for more privacy. You'll also want to familiarize yourself with the city's public transportation system prior to arrival.

Solo female travel

Solo travel

When I first travelled solo, it was because none of my friends were available. Taking the trip alone heightened my independence and I loved being in charge of my own plans! Five year later, I wouldn’t have it any other way. 

Solo female travel is often portrayed negatively in the media but I’m keen to dispel solo travel myths and help other women live on their own terms. There are so many benefits to solo travel  that it would be a shame to miss them!

I’ve travelled popular regions like Southeast Asia , lesser-visited but just as safe locations like Taiwan and Romania , as well as locations like India , Mexico and South Africa which get a bad rep but are fantastic destinations if you have a bit of practice.

My Contiki Story

How my solo trip with contiki improved my well being 

By Alana Avallone

Alana is an Aussie - Italian born and raised in Sydney. She is a travel enthusiast who loves the beach and going on outdoor adventures. Alana is a huge fan of medical drama shows and crime documentaries.

Published on Feb 19, 2024

For this year’s International Women’s Day, we are interested in looking at the ways travel can be empowering and open the doors of life, especially for our solo female travellers (who make up 52% of our travellers!).

Feeling inspired?

7 ways travelling facilitates female empowerment

At the beginning of 2023, my life was in shambles. I was navigating heartbreak, depression, and anxiety, leaving me feeling completely lost in the world. A few months later I decided I needed something to help me overcome these challenges. My life long dream has always been to travel the world however this was constantly on hold – I always believed I needed a travel companion to travel and see the world with, but it became more and more obvious that waiting wasn’t leading me anywhere.

One day, I made the decision: “That’s it I’m doing this alone!” I refused to let anyone hold me back. It was recommended to me by a friend that Contiki was great for solo travelers, so I visited the Contiki website and before I knew it, I’d booked a solo trip to the one place at the top of my bucket list – Italy ! I am Italian however, born and raised in Australia, I was desperate to explore and experience my heritage.

It was now time for me to embrace the world on my own terms. 

Image source: Alana Avallone

The journey there

As my departure date neared, I had some serious reservations. I was concerned about making friends as I sometimes struggle to connect with others and whether or not this trip was going to give me the fulfillment I sought after. I would often wonder if I would regret the entire thing. 

To my surprise, none of my worries became true. I had an incredible experience and would do it all over again.

Simply Italy

The journey of friendships.

Within the first few days of my trip, I connected with fellow solo female travellers, and together, we had the time of our lives.Together we discovered a love for red wine and would share a bottle at every dinner. We would cheer’s our glasses and say “chin, chin”. This became our little thing we did, and we even named our friendship group after the phrase. To this day, we’ve stayed in touch, and often reminisce about our adventures in Italy. 

 Not only was I experiencing Italian culture but I was experiencing the cultures of those on the trip with me. Connecting with others from all over the world was seriously one of the highlights of my trip.

The journey to myself

This trip was EXACTLY what I needed and it helped me improve my mental health and well-being. I felt I was able to reconnect with myself and the world. As a result of the depression I was experiencing I was not my usual joyful self, but as soon as my flight landed in Rome everything I was mentally experiencing disappeared. 

Since that trip, I’ve been thriving. My self imposed limitations vanished. It pushed me out of my comfort zone, empowered me, and reaffirmed that I can accomplish anything. I am more confident, independent and happier. I proved to everyone who thought I couldn’t get on a plane to a foreign country that, as a young woman, I am perfectly capable on my own. And I proved this to myself as well.

8 Lies I’m Sick Of Hearing As A Solo Female Traveller

If you are feeling stuck like I was, it might be time to book that trip you have been dreaming of. Planning trips and figuring out every detail can be overwhelming. Contiki takes care of that for you. This was one of the key reasons I chose a tour instead of navigating it on my own. It also means you’re never truly alone which enhances your sense of security. 

To aid you on your solo journey, I have a few tips I’d like to share: 

Trust your Trip Manager: Your Trip Manager is a wealth of knowledge and can guide you to the best food spots, instagram-worthy locations, and shops to explore. They also know which places to avoid, ensuring your safety and enjoyment. 

Try everything: Embrace new experiences by participating in every activity Contiki has to offer. This will help you immerse yourself in the local culture. Don’t hesitate to try unfamiliar foods; you might discover something unexpectedly tasty!

Make an effort to talk to everyone on your trip: Putting yourself out there can be intimidating, especially when travelling solo. But rest assured, most people on the trip are in the same boat – solo travellers on their first adventure. Initiating conversations is the best way to make friends.

Pack an eye mask: I highly recommend bringing an eye mask for nighttime and on the coach. It’s the only way to block out light in shared rooms, ensuring you get a good night’s sleep and allowing you to get some Zzz’s in whilst on the coach.

Carry a rechargeable battery pack: Taking countless pictures can drain your phone battery quickly, so having a rechargeable battery pack will keep you powered up and ready to capture all those memories. Always having a fully charged phone is important incase you stray away from the group and need to use the maps on your phone to find your way back.

Bring a water bottle: It’s essential to stay hydrated, especially in hot weather. If you prefer your water cold like me, consider using an insulated water bottle. Make sure your bottle fits in your bag as well so you might have to get a smaller one.

Utilise packing cubes: Packing cubes are a game changer when it comes to keeping your suitcase organised and tidy. They’ll make your life much easier especially when you are constantly moving between different accommodations.

Remember, solo travel isn’t about being alone; it’s about finding a community of like-minded souls in every corner of the globe. It’s about realising that the only limitations are the ones we impose upon ourselves. 

Bon voyage to your own empowering adventure!

Why older women are increasingly choosing to travel solo

The popular tour company Road Scholar , which has been recognized as one of the best companies for senior tours , recently released a report based on the responses of 600 senior women solo travelers. Why? Because women traveling on their own – especially as part of a tour group – is on the rise. According to the report, up to 30% of the company's tour participants are solo travelers; and of those solo travelers, 85% are women. 

While women tend to outlive male partners by six years, the story of why solo travel among women is on the rise is a lot more complicated (and interesting) than the life expectancy gap. Of the 600 solo women travelers surveyed, 60% of Road Scholar’s solo travelers in 2022 were married, and only 6% said they traveled solo because they didn’t have anyone else in their life to travel with. 

WOMEN TRAVELING TOGETHER: 9 best tour companies for women’s-only tours

So, why are more and more partnered senior women traveling solo? Many said their spouse wasn’t interested in traveling or didn’t want to go to the same destinations. Some said their partners weren’t physically able to travel. “Don’t let a silly thing like marriage get in the way of your passion to learn about the world,” said tour participant Barbara W. 

Vacation ideas for older travelers:

  • 9 best tour companies for travelers over 50
  • 5 best senior adventures for travelers age 50+
  • 8 grandparent-grandkid vacations for active seniors
  • 7 best resorts for multigenerational family travel
  • 9 skip-gen destinations for grandparents and grandkids

Learn more: Best travel insurance

For some, solo travel is either a necessity or a preference, but many of the women surveyed went deeper to explain the reasons they actually love solo travel: 26% said they traveled solo because it was easier to make new friends when traveling alone. 

Independence was a big factor, too: 

  • 22% said they enjoy the autonomy
  • 15% said they liked being able to choose their destination
  • 6% said they appreciated not needing to coordinate with someone else’s schedule

Since guided tours provide structure, access, and a built-in community, it makes sense that as we continue to see a rise in senior women traveling solo, multi-day guided tours would be a great fit. 

As someone who travels both as a solo traveler and is also always on the lookout for family vacation ideas with my kids and spouse, I find this rise in solo travel, especially among women, thrilling. I think of the older women in my life and want this for them: the chance to continue their adventures and to choose the places they want to go. 

While not true for every woman, there’s a tendency for women to do a lot of accommodating in their younger years – making sure partners and children and work all take priority. Solo travel for senior women feels like a wonderful counterbalance, a way of reclaiming one’s interests, autonomy, and sense of adventure.

Women Blazing Trails

10 Weird Things I Learned About Being a Solo Female Traveler

T en years ago, if you would have told me I’d be a solo female traveler, one day I’d ask what you were smoking. It never appealed to me.

I’m a Libra. I hate making decisions. I hate doing anything alone.

But here we are, eight years later, in sunny Guatemala, right from Northern Ontario, Canada. I’ve already been to Mexico, Costa Rica, Peru, Honduras, London, and El Salvador as well.

And what a journey it’s been!

I realized you learn a lot about yourself when you travel alone. An awful lot. Some of it good, some of it not so good at all.

How Safe Is It Being a Solo Female Traveler?

So of course, before we get started, let’s answer the burning question: is being a solo female traveler safe?

Well. Mostly yes. As with anything, you must use common sense when you’re out and about. Sort of what you do in your own town/city anyway.

Now don’t get me wrong, we’ve all heard horror stories about how some young girl was raped and killed or mugged and beaten. I’m not gonna say it never happens.

I just think it’s really location-specific and you really need to be aware of your surroundings. I’ve traveled as a sole female traveler in Central America and South America and never once felt threatened.

Maybe by a dog or scorpion, but never by another human being.

So, is solo female travel safe?

Like anything else, do your research first. Where are you going? Where will you be staying? Are there any reviews of the city/hostel/neighborhood you’ll be in?

I love The Lonely Planet Books. So much valuable information!

If you’re ever unsure, just Google. But with that said, don’t go crazy and read a million different stories because then you’ll be overwhelmed and never leave your house.

That’s no fun either.

Stay informed. Stay alert. But remember to enjoy your journey too!

Another really smart thing to do is find Facebook groups for the town you are going to, join, and ask questions. People are always more than happy to help.

They will let you know if you will be in any crazy danger and things like what areas to avoid and identifying real taxis.

What are the best places for a solo female traveler?

I have to be honest, I’m no travel expert. I could rhyme off one hundred of the best places for a solo female traveler, but if you aren’t interested in any of the destinations, then what’s the point?

So many of my friends love Asia and tell me I should go, and that it is great for solo female travelers—hard pass. Asia never did and most likely never will interest me.

I could tell you that Guatemala is the bomb, but if you aren’t interested in Central America, well, you see where I’m going with this?

I think, as a solo female traveler, any place is the best place. No?

So enough with the small talk. Let’s get down to the things I learned as a solo female traveler, and some of these things might actually resonate with you or cause you to pause and think about your first solo travel trip.

10 things I learned as a solo female traveler

I now share these things with you (and a few solo female travel tips) because I think knowledge is power. When I ventured off on my solo travels, I was absolutely clueless. I didn’t know what I was doing, what to watch out for, or how to prepare for different things.

Yup. Totally clueless. So these things might give you that “aaah” moment. I hope they won’t stop you from traveling, though. That’s not my intention at all. Pack your bags. See the world. Explore. And then you can tell your stories too!

In no particular order of importance, here we go…

1 I hate bugs a lot

I don’t mean little bugs and stuff like that. No, not those cute little guys. We’re talking scorpions and spiders the size of the palm of my hand. Ya, those critters.

I have all my windows sealed up like Fort Knox. I’ve also sealed up every little slit and crack I could possibly find.

I’m used to earwigs, moths, and bees, but not these guys. Learning to remove a scorpion from my apartment for the first time, alone, was terrifying.

I’m kind of a pro now, though.

Be prepared for critters you’ve never seen in your wildest dreams. Get bug spray.

2 Learning a new language is hard

I was honestly a tad intimidated by the fact that not many locals actually speak English and I gotta get my butt in gear and learn their language. Fast. And I am, and I’m pretty proud of myself, really.

I never thought in a million years I’d be learning a new language at 53 years young. It’s pretty awesome.

I have a long way to go, but I’m getting by pretty good now (in my opinion). I still have yet to be able to read signs and words, which gets kinda tricky in a restaurant. Thank God most of them have English translations.

You should try to learn the basic words, especially numbers so you don’t get screwed over trying to buy stuff. But learn enough to be able to ask simple questions.

Duolingo is fantastic and free!

3 I’m actually rather shy

I bet some of my friends reading this are laughing right now, but really. I find myself feeling very shy, and the introvert in me comes out more than I thought it would. It’s taken me quite some time to make the few friends I have made.

I thought I would get down here and have many friends within a week. Such is not the case. I couldn’t talk to anyone, and I kept to myself.

I was actually, and in all honesty, kind of scared. (who wouldn’t be??) I’m getting better, though, and I’m pretty proud of myself.

Meeting and talking to new people can actually be somewhat intimidating unless you are a total extrovert. Kudos to you, babe!

4 I really do like being alone

I always did, but here, I am really alone. No one calls, no one banging on the door or showing up unannounced. They couldn’t anyway ’cause my house is pretty far away from town.

Seems not many want to make the trek.

But I’m really loving my own company. I feel so totally free here. I actually feel like I’m in Heaven some days. That’s not to say that I wouldn’t like some company every now and then; it’s just saying that I feel very free, happy, and alive, being alone.

I’m surprised by that. You may find this, too. You suddenly have a new lease on life and want to take it all in. Alone.

5 I learned how to light a gas stove without burning all my hair off

Ok, this one still freaks me out for the simple reason that I have always been afraid of gas stoves because I have a crippling fear of my hair going up in flames.

That’s the diva/former hairstylist in me that will never die.

So when I had to learn how to light my stove so I could eat to survive, I was really frightened. But I obviously did it, and I’m pretty proud of myself.

You will have to learn how to work foreign and somewhat terrifying things at first. Pull up your big girl panties. You got this.

6 Contrary to number 4, I find myself lonely at times

Not very often, but every now and then, it hits me and hits me hard. There have been a couple of times I actually thought I should go back home.

But where is home anyway?

I have nothing, nowhere. Such freedom! But at the same time, it’s not having that sense of belonging to anything anymore that may ignite that sense of loneliness.

I’m still not really sure about this one all I know is that every now and then, whammo, I wish I had someone.

If you are used to visitors and friends and a boisterous social life, in the beginning, it may not happen that way. You may get lonely and wonder if you made a mistake.

You didn’t. You’ll be fine. Embrace that time alone.

7 Becoming a vegetarian sounds good, but a vegetarian who can still eat bacon

So, like a pretend vegetarian. The only reason is that I had difficulty finding decent meat to eat in Guatemala. To me, it all tasted funny.

I have been eating more avocados, chickpeas, and other fiber and protein fillers, and I’m not minding a bit.

You may or may not have a hard time with the food. You may or may not get food poisoning. Sorry if you do. It sucks—a lot.

(speaking of food poisoning, make sure you know where the public health clinic is so you can get there right away)

But if you are a fussy eater, be prepared for some struggles. This is where your Facebook groups will come in handy, and the people there will tell you what you can and can’t find.

You may want to bring your own. Or do without. I do without a lot of first-world food, but when family or friends visit from Canada or the US, I have a grocery list ready.

8 I never know what day it is anymore

I don’t wear a watch anymore either, something I would never leave the house without putting on back in Sudbury.

I couldn’t care less. I wake up when I feel like it, eat when my tummy tells me it’s time, go out when I feel like it, and come home when I’m tired.

Days of the week don’t really matter much anymore. Every day is just a beautiful day. Why do we have to give it a name?

You will soon discover this. It’s rather normal. Days, hours, weeks, months. All irrelevant. And so liberating. Just enjoy life . Period.

9 I have way more balls than I ever thought any woman could legally have

I’m doing stuff that I never in a million bajillion years thought I would ever be doing.

From getting in beat-up wooden boats to go across one of the deepest lakes in the world to go see villages across the way to zip lining hundreds of feet in the air.

You’re going to feel compelled to do random crazy stuff. Do it all. Take it all in. Live on the edge. It’s so friggin amazing. You’ll see.

It blows my mind all the time. I’m actually now even thinking about going paragliding. Now THAT looks ridiculously awesome!!

10 I have patience??

I’m not sure where that came from. I’ve always been the most impatient person on the planet, but when you are in a different country, you learn to adapt to their culture quickly. You won’t be “Freaking out Felicia” anymore.

It took me a while to get there, but I’m here now—patience times 10. Mind you, I’ll be honest. Every now and then, something happens that ruffles my feathers, but when you realize no one gaf, well, neither will you.

You’ll just be all calm and doing your thing and letting people do their thing, and no one cares. And neither will you.

Tips for all travelers, not just females

I get that not all these tips are only for the solo female traveler but, that’s what I am, and that’s what I learned in my last eight years of solo traveling .

I just found that many of these things are girl-related (like the bugs). If you know someone who has been thinking about going solo, send this to her!

Oh, and I can’t forget one final travel tip for you. Don’t pay full price for anything, ever. They will instantly jack up prices when they see a foreigner. They will go high, you go low and meet somewhere in the middle.

Happy trails to you!!

Cheers friends!!
