Solo Female Travel Blog


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.  My blog was inspired by 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 experiences. I will be sharing tips and some interesting and juicy stories about my adventures. From seeing a shooting in New York to being asked by a cheeky Frenchman for a roll in the hay.

I hope you enjoy my journey.
