I survived my first ICAST, the fishing industry’s largest tradeshow, and found some great finds for female solo travelers. Ranging from services to gear to fun gifts, here are my top 2017 ICAST finds.
Can you find Siesta Key on a map? How about Sarasota? What does it mean to put a place on a map? It seems when something out of the norm can bring attention to a destination, the locals believe it will put them on the map. And, Modern Map Art has the map. “It will put Sarasota on the map,” I heard many say prior to the July 31, 2017 debut of MTV’s “Siesta Key,” a quasi-reality show filmed in and around Sarasota, Florida....
When I asked for tips first-time ICAST attendees should know, these were some of the nuggets of advice friends well-versed in the world of the world’s largest sport fishing trade show gave me. If you don’t know what ICAST is, then you probably won’t care about the rest of this post and can mosey along.

I admit to being a klutzy gal but using the Valkyrie case from Urban Armor Gear for my iPhone 5 has probably saved me some money the last couple of months. My iPhone is my single most important piece of travel gear and it’s important to protect it.
Internet access is pretty much essential when running a travel blog and it’s one of the challenges I have when traveling, especially on media trips. Other than 5 a.m., internet access in hotels and resorts seems to be slowcus-pocus during peak usage hours which makes it difficult to upload photos, post to social media channels, respond to emails and make blog posts. As part of my duties as a NETGEAR Ambassador, I recently received the NETGEAR Trek N300 Travel Router and Range Extender to give it a try and share my honest feedback.
Have someone who travels with their dog on your holiday gift list? Or maybe you’re the one who brings along your fearless canine. Either way, here’s Part 1 of Solo Travel Girl’s nifty dog travel accessories. How did I find these fun gadgets for wanderlust pooches and their people pals?
