From A to Z, what are the characteristics of a solo travel girl? By far she’s curious, cool and captivating!

Curious – Forget about stones, no travel brochure, menu or garment price tag goes unturned during a solo travel girl’s journey. Curiosity drives her adventures as she searches for the most off-the-beaten path and unique vacation destinations in order to earn those coveted bragging rights envied by her non-traveling friends. She’s also the annoying one asking the most questions during guided museum tours, nature hikes and historic walks through neighborhoods.

Cool – This gallivanting babe knows how to keep it together even during the most stressful situations. Looking down the barrel of a semi-automatic weapon during a trip to Kabul, Afghanistan, may have caused others to pee their panties but this solo travel girl just nodded, smiled and said hello to the officer at the other end of the gun, causing him to shy away.

Captivating – Oftentimes she finds herself the center of dinner party conversations, peppered with questions of, “You travel alone, aren’t you lonely?,” or, “Where’s your favorite place you’ve traveled,” of course, “Where are you going next?,” and, “Can you help me book my vacation?”

A solo travel girl is often the object of a man’s attention, particularly those from countries other than her own. This independent traveler has been affectionately called “cute monkey girl” by a Japanese suitor and told by an Egyptian sailor named Sinbad she didn’t look bad for her age of 39. Indeed, the solo travel girl is quite captivating.
