I love to travel. I prefer to travel sans tour group. As a single female traveling safe and smart, I hope I can inspire you to do the same. This is for all of you who want to go, but don’t know where, or when, or how. This is for the ones who think they can’t do it now, who are afraid of leaving it all behind or daunted by the perils of solo travel, especially as women. This is to show that a normal gal, with a normal upbringing, a normal family, a normal life–can go wherever (or almost wherever) she wants. Where I lead, you can follow. If you’ve got the ambition, you’ve got the aptitude. Go go go!

If you have any questions I can help answer for you personally (or if I can find someone who knows better), please ask! If you’ve been somewhere and have more to say, please comment! Let’s establish a global dialogue.
