Solo Travel For Women Tips
Solo travel for women has become more commonplace, although there are steps you can take for a safer and pleasanter experience. And some countries just aren’t especially safe for women traveling alone, including Brazil, Mexico and many places in the Middle East. Women traveling alone should always be aware of their surroundings, avoid poorly lit or deserted places, and carry an alarm or mace. It’s also a good idea to wear a wedding ring even if you aren’t married. Don’t dress too provocatively and choose your accommodation carefully. If you are being harassed or followed, don’t be afraid to shout or head for the nearest public building or official. If you’re arranging a meeting with a man, always choose a public place. Every year around 32 million American women travel alone, and with common sense it’s possible to have a safe and memorable travel experience.
