Q: The bookstore section of your site has a great range of titles in it, many of them focusing on travel for women. What are your top tips for women traveling alone?
Have fun! The acute paranoia out there on what is safe is not unwarranted but a woman really just needs to take the same precautions abroad as she would in her own city. It’s actually more exciting abroad because it’s full of discovery.
That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t know the emergency numbers, where the hospital is, or how to get help, but the reason to travel alone is be more spontaneous and playful. So be smart, have fun, and bring back some stories.
