OTHER WOMEN LOVE IT...
As a long-time proponent of solo travel, I was thrilled to discover Leyla Giray’s first book, aptly titled Women on the Road. Travelling solo is a wonderful, life-enriching experience, but as Leyla points out it can be very daunting and doing so as a woman – especially alone – can sometimes complicate matters even further. This book is therefore an essential guide for any woman who has ever dreamed of travelling but been too afraid to take the proverbial leap into the unknown. It encourages women of all ages by offering advice gained from years of first-hand, on-the-road solo travel experience on everything from how to travel safely and independently to what to pack and where to stay. This book not only makes solo travel more accessible, it empowers women with the tools to make their solo travel dreams take flight.

Travel – especially solo travel, when you’re 50+ – can be a scary prospect if you haven’t done it before. But it doesn’t have to be! Women on the Road will help you plan your trip; from generating ideas of where to go and providing pre-planning checklists, right through to tips on reintegrating after you return, and everything in between.

A title alone couldn’t convince me that all the essential wisdom needed for women in my age group to travel solo would be contained in this book, but within a few minutes of starting Leyla Giray’s Women On The Road, I knew I had found the real thing. Besides being an extraordinarily experienced traveler, Giray is one of us, and has a true understanding of the travel realities unique to women in this age demographic. Far more than a lightweight overview, Giray addresses in detail the kind of things any of us planning solo travel for any amount of time either is already concerned about or should be, while always reminding that travel can be incredibly rewarding and should be fun. This book will be a important standby on my Kindle, and will no doubt be referred to often during both the planning stages and while on the road. Whether you are already experienced solo traveler or in the early dreaming stage, you need this book!

ABOUT LEYLA GIRAY
Leyla Giray is a journalist and development worker with a passion for travel and improving people’s lives in developing countries. At 43 she made a major life decision to reinvent herself, leaving her profession, possessions and a dead-end relationship to travel the world solo for six months.
Along the way she got lost in a Mozambican minefield, almost drowned off Zanzibar, paddled her way out of a flood in the Philippines, was stampeded by an elephant cow in Nigeria and stranded in a South African wildlife reserve for a week; she met with dissidents in Cuba and unwittingly sat on an anaconda in Brazil.
Now, she’s packed a lifetime of experiences into a book that’s practical, inspiring, and just right for you.
