Many people think that it is dangerous for a woman to travel alone. This is true. It is truer in some countries than others. As a woman, who travels alone, it is a blast. I highly recommend it. However, traveling alone requires a little more caution. Traveling alone has opened me up to meet people I would never have noticed if I were with someone. I have had some bizarre conversations. ~a strange man told me I was odd (I was traveling on a Eastern European train at 2am alone). I have had some awesome encounters. I have also had some hard situations. Whatever the case was, I turned out better for it.
My favourite place to take a solo trip is up in New England. There is so much to see and do up there. I like being able to take it at my own pace. What do you think of solo travel?
