4.0 out of 5 stars Wanderlust and Lipstick Review 23 Nov. 2008
By R. K. Buttacavoli - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This little book is certainly worth the price. Its an easy read but don't be fooled by the simple, straight-forward style and arrangement. It is chock-full of sound, practical advice. There are countless suggestions and links to important sites with necessary travel information. Not only do you get all of this for the price, you get motivation and support, too. Feeling a little skittish about that first foray into single travel? This author will hold your hand all the way through her insightful and well thought out book. Happy Trails!

2.0 out of 5 stars A little light on the "Women Traveling Solo" part 11 Mar. 2010
By Minisaurus - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I did not find this to be a particularly inspiring travel book, especially given the title. I expected more content aimed toward the traveling solo part and less on what I consider to be basic travel knowledge. I gave it an extra star because it does include a few decent pointers for basic travel skills. Although I think that saying the obvious, such as how they drive on different sides of the road in some countries, is almost rude. I would hope anyone thinking of traveling solo would do their homework about their destination of choice! It amazes me that you would need to tell someone that the place they are traveling to is...different! I think Rick Steves' books, Rough Guides or even Budget Travel Magazine do a better job of explaining what kinds of questions to ask yourself when choosing a destination. Additionally, some of the subjects seem like nothing but filler. For example, the author devotes more words to explaining RSS feeds than to the subject of jet lag! I don't need to know how to use the internet--I wanted solid advice on how to make my solo travel a more enjoyable and safe experience.

If you've driven across the U.S. or traveled overseas you might want to continue to look elsewhere. But, if you've never really left your own town or state, then this is probably a great book for you and I say buy it and happy trails!

Beth Whitman is thorough. She goes into detail about things that may not have ever crossed the would-be solo traveler's mind. This book should be required reading for all college students.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Dumbed Down Travel Book for Women 1 May 2013
By Mujer Latina - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a middle aged woman who has traveled as a single since the age of 15, I was insulted by how silly the themes presented for the 'solo woman traveler' are. Really??! Telling an adult woman to be comfortable eating alone, or how to have 'sexual hook-ups' in various cultures: 'Don't lead the guy on, because they might not understand that all you want is a fling' (paraphrased). Oh please. A chapter devoted to remembering condoms and your birth control pills in case you meet someone?? This author insults the intelligence of the American woman -- no matter her age. I was hoping for some actual helpful tips -- not "chick-lit" billed as a bona fide travel reference.
