There are many women who frequently travel by themselves and are living their best lives. However, if you're a first-time traveler and are just starting to consider solo travel as a woman, you might be wondering about your safety especially after hearing negative news or rumors. As an experienced traveler, I can tell you that the chances of actually encountering something dangerous are pretty low. With the right precautions, you can safely and confidently solo travel as a woman. Every woman has to experience traveling alone, even just once! Traveling without conversing constantly, making plans as a group, or taking into account the wants of others is incredibly liberating. Obstacles and difficulties are a part and parcel of life and may pose themselves in your travels, but they are not something to justify not traveling!
