Traveling is something as a woman I enjoy doing, preferably with family and friends. Going solo, however, is an entirely different ballgame, not only can it be difficult to do, because if we all waited around for someone’s vacation to link with ours, the only place we would be going to is the grocery store. Traveling alone as a woman can be especially trying, with having to convince your family you will not be abducted, but also fielding endless advice from friends who cannot reconcile the fact that you are going alone.
