Saturday, April 20, is Brought to You by the Letter “R”

From A to Z, what are the characteristics of a solo travel girl? This rambunctious lady is restless, responsible and ready!

Restless – She’s young at heart and definitely restless. If her feet aren’t on the move exploring the inner guts of a community, she’s home putting plotting her next adventure.

Responsible – Traveling solo means ya can’t be a flake and need to keep your wits about you. This gal has it together and has a keen sense of avoiding trouble while on the road.

Taking another meaning to “responsible” when possible she’s a responsible traveler and has found a variety of ways to add a little green to her adventures, such as engaging in low-impact activities such as walking tours, searches out farm-to-table eateries and does little to disrupt a culture when visiting developing countries.

Ready – “Have passport, ready to travel.” That’s (one of) the STG’s motto. The STG is prepared and ready to able to hop on a plane at a moment’s notice (following her hour or so drive to the airport).
