From A to Z, what are the characteristics of a solo travel girl? Holy cow! This happening hawty is happy-go-lucky, honest and humble.

Happy-Go-Lucky – This gal carries a “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah” carefree and contagious spirit both on the road and while home planning her next trip. She begins each day by popping out of bed without hitting the snooze and greeting the rising sun. She’s able to turn anyone’s frown upside down and hugs those lemons to make lemonade (or Limoncello).

Honest – Although a opens in a new windowfrugalista, the solo travel girl scrutinizes her restaurant bill and if an item is missing she’ll promptly alert her server. She’s almost honest to a fault but is always sincere. When the STG is around you’ll never have to fear about being that person with spinach stuck between your teeth all night because once she spots it, she’ll politely let you know.

Humble – She’s accomplished many things in life but her head and feet are grounded like a lightening rod and she embraces what’s important. Oftentimes she has the ability to steal someone’s thunder with one heck of a travel tale yet she steps away to let others shine in their glory.

  1. Oh, I get to be the first to comment… I love the photo with the duck and the caption below it. It’s darling… ah, the solo travel girl is an early riser, go-getter, bright eyed and bushy tailed… hmmm… I think I’ll go back to bed now : )

  2. That photo of you and the duck is utterly adorable!

    I genuinely appreciate being informed of spinach in my teeth – politely, of course.

    Even though you’re the solo travel girl, you sound like fun to travel with!
