Product Description

At this exact moment, women just like you are out exploring the world solo. Choosing to join them and travel the world on your own could be the most rewarding decision you'll ever make. Looking back on your travels, the people you've met, the incredible places you've seen, and the life-changing experiences you've had will make you wonder why you didn't try it sooner.

But many women only dream about the places they wish to travel, missing out on all of the richness that life has to offer. Where have you been dreaming of going but you haven't yet taken the leap?

What is keeping you from following that dream?

- Do you worry about not having enough money?

- Are you worried about being lonely?

- Do you have a partner who can't or doesn't want to travel?

- Are you concerned about what to pack, your safety, where to go, or even how to get there?

If so, this book is for you. It will provide you with the knowledge and resources to put all of your fears to rest about traveling the world solo. If you are worried about being lonely, you might be surprised at how many inspiring people you meet on your travels. In fact, many women travelers find that they spend more time alone when they are in safety and comfort of their own home town.

7 major subjects covered in this book:

- Facing the Fear Monsters... and overcoming them

- Planning Your Trip... including important advice about passports, visa, and insurance

- Options for the First Time Solo Traveler... including finding travel companions, how to couch surf the right way, volunteering to offset costs and meet new people, and WWOOFing

- How to Stretch the Budget... where to stay, how to eat, and working as you go

- Overcoming Loneliness

- Women's Specific Issues and Women's Safety

- Solving the Packing Dilemma... what to take, what to leave behind

About the author-------

Deneice Arthurton is an expert at solo world travel. She is a freelance writer and surfer who has been traveling the world for the last 9 years. Here is her story in her own words:

In 2003, after an all-too-close encounter with my own mortality, I sold my house, gave away my business and possessions, tucked my surf board under my arm and set out into the world to find adventure. Almost a decade later I am still doing that, still getting lost and found, still living a life which strikes me every single day as a blessed one........and discovering that the world is enormous.

My initial forays into the world of travel were undertaken with a big burly man by my side – my long term partner and playmate Chris. When our relationship ended, after dusting my heartbroken self down, I wanted to carry on traveling and surfing but I was totally terrified. What's more, in my 40s, I was no longer young.

My answer at that time was to find a voluntary work placement in Thailand to make my initial solo female travel a little less daunting. I can still remember the total feeling of paralyzing fear as my plane took off – I had never felt so lonely in my whole life. Little did I know at the time that it was to be the beginning of something beautiful and I haven't looked back since.

Where will I go next? Who knows......... somewhere in the world. Deneice Arthurton, solo female backpacker....Lucky me!

Maybe you'll see her out there!

It would be worth paying for but is even better value as a freebie! Will no doubt refer to it often as it contains a wealth of useful and common sense advice.

Good information in this book but very short - read in about an hour max! I haven't checked out the web addresses yet but they might well be useful.

Although I'm a bit long in the tooth for backpacking Europe, as was the rage of my contemporaries back when, this book has given me an intense itch for travel, HOWEVER I can manage it.

Great little book. Well worth a dollar. I wish there were some more female specific info, but this book definitely covers the basics. A more detailed packing list with recommendations would also be great.
