Everyone will tell you to travel safely, but what does that mean and how do you do it?
Solo travel is a personal and sacred experience. It allows you solitude, the freedom to create your own adventure, and enables you to discover your true self. How do you spend your days when you are free from outside influences? Free from schedules and itineraries? What things interest you and call you to participate? For me, it’s dive bars and nature hikes–especially mountain climbing. What a surprise! I would not have discovered that, if not for the freedom of traveling by myself. I live as a single female, on a 19-foot Skoolie named Bubba; and have been living this way for over a year. I am often asked how I stay safe on the open road. In a perfect world, this would not be a necessary consideration; but our world is not that world, and safety precautions are essential. Everyone will tell you to travel safely, but what does that mean and how do you do it? Here are a few of my safety suggestions for any woman who enjoys traveling more deeply on a solo journey.
