Is the solo travel girl made of sugar and spice and everything nice? Perhaps, but there’s more to this gutsy gal.

Last month I participated in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge and my meme focused on characteristics of the solo travel girl. In case you missed it (which you probably did, I was having server issues and my site was down for a good chunk of April), below is a summary of those characteristics with a link to the original post which includes definitions for each word.

The concept was to recognize whether you’re a solo traveling female or not, there’s a little bit of the solo travel girl in everyone. And, no two STGs are alike. She comes in all forms, ages, shapes, colors, and backgrounds making every single independent travelista beautiful, confident and so on. Remember, if you find yourself traveling independently, embrace the concept of traveling alone, not lonely.

Feel free to chime in with your own adjectives or personality traits that make up of this wandering woman.
