Do you dream of traveling the world?

Do you worry about your safety?

Are you unsure you have what it takes to do it solo?

Do you second-guess yourself?

Kristin Addis writes the solo female travel column for this website, and her detailed guide addresses all the concerns women have about traveling. Here is Kristin in her own words:

I used to ask myself what the archetypal solo female traveler was like. I would wonder, who is out there traveling the world by herself right now? Is she anything like me? Does she have something special that I don’t have? Is she braver, stronger, or different in some way than the girl who looks back at me in the mirror?

I wasn’t sure if I was cut out for traveling on my own.

I was a bit shy and not convinced I could rough it in cramped buses and mosquito net-covered beds in shared dorms. I wondered if I was even strong enough to carry the backpack. Doomsday scenarios went through my mind: maybe I wouldn’t meet anyone, I’d get robbed, or I’d hate it and want to come home.

I know what it’s like to want to travel more but worry that doing it solo is too risky or unsafe or that you don’t have the right skills – because I’ve been exactly where you are.

I always wished there was an all-inclusive guide that could answer every travel, safety, savings, and packing question I had – because I had many before I left. I was looking for reassurance that everything was going to be OK, and wanted someone to make the planning process simple for me!

I wrote this book to be the ultimate guide for solo female travelers and to give you the information you need as a woman to plan an amazing trip and be a fearless and informed traveler.

Whether you’re going away for two weeks, two months, going on a girl’s trip, or want to backpack solo, it’s easier – and safer – than you think!

How This Book Will Help You

Save time – skip the researching and get straight to planning

The information in this ebook was compiled using my own firsthand experience after years of successful solo travel, but I didn’t stop there. I also asked 15 other well-established female travel experts – old, young, Western, and non-Western – to give me their best advice too. They are extensively quoted throughout the digital book! PLUS, I feature dozens of stories from regular, everyday women like you so you can gain from their experience and knowledge too.

A guide that specifically addresses women’s needs

Women and men have different needs in daily life, so there’s no question that those differences extend to traveling as well.

There weren’t any guidebooks out there already that I felt adequately covered not only how to prep but how to create your own adventure independently and bravely. I don’t just want you to be prepared, I want you to be exhilarated, inspired, and motivated so that nothing stands in the way of your trip of a lifetime. Even if you don’t feel brave right now, this book can help to give you the tools you need to build your confidence and get on that airplane.

It helped me battle my fears of just going, not take the negativity to heart, and instead listen to those closest to me who supported me.

Kristin really gives you no other choice than to just go.”

solo female travel with JennaJenna: “When I first started researching solo traveling, I found great resources, but much of it from the male perspective. Kristin discusses in-depth many of the anxieties that come up when planning your trip and offers great tips and advice on how to overcome them. Not only does she discuss her experiences, but she also includes interviews with many other female travelers, giving readers even more insight into the female travel experience.”
