Wednesday, April 10, is Brought to You by the Letter “I”

From A to Z, what are the characteristics of a solo travel girl? Indeed this inspirational gal is independent, ingenious and incredible!

Independent – It takes a strong spirit and determination to travel alone not lonely and the solo travel girl is independent with a capital “I.” Her strong-will and wisdom serves as inspiration for other women vacationing alone for the first time.

Ingenious MacGyver studied under this independent female and learned how to make anything with duct tape. She’s clever and resourceful when it comes to repairing little hiccups while traveling and always carries a little Duck Tape duct tape. She has little tricks up her sleeve such as knowing how to open a locked suitcase with a pen (because she misplaced her key) and knowing washing her intimates in the coffee maker is a frugal and convenient way to go. (Here’s another tip – don’t drink out of your in-room coffee pot!)

Incredible – She’s overcome internal odds and obstacles to travel independently. By facing her fears and finding her inner strength, the STG has completed extraordinary journeys and continues to push boundaries of her comfort zone to grow personally, professionally and spiritually.

  1. I travelled alone from Australia to England twenty-five years ago. I like to think my integrity shone through and repelled any harm I could have endured. I’m glad of the experience, but wouldn’t repeat it.
