Solo travel as a not so young woman can be quite the experience.
If I could have a dollar for every time someone has told me I was brave I would be a wealthy woman. I have always had the yearning to travel. When I was young my greatest desire was to don a backpack and take off to see the world.
My family came a little earlier than expected and I found myself with 2 wonderful children by the age of 23 (not that I minded), – my travel plans were put on hold. So as soon as my family was grown and I found myself single again, that old desire returned and off into the world I went.
A Not So Young Woman Abroad has been born of my experiences as a solo traveller who has no desire to “do” any country much less be confined on a “guided” tour. It has grown into a community of amazing women from all around the world.
A Not So Young Woman Abroad was inspired by my own experiences trying to find information for older solo female travellers go it alone without tour companies. Travelling alone in the world I have had the most amazing adventures. I’ve found lots of off the beaten track places to go and have met some wonderful people along the way.
I hope you enjoy my journey.
