So how safe is it to travel solo as a female?
There’s been some bad headlines in the news about women encountering danger abroad. When has living ever been safe for a woman?
I started solo traveling in 2009. I chose it out of necessity. Either travel alone or don’t travel at all. Those were my two options and it wasn’t an easy choice.
Telling me to fear solo travel because I am single and a woman, is like telling me not to breath, to go back to the days of foot binding and corsets and wait for a big, strong man to walk into my life.
I don’t dismiss that danger is possible when you travel.
But the absolute truth is that as women, danger is a possibility in every corner of our lives. Solo or not, with crimes and violence on the rise, we must practice safety everywhere. The idea is not to question solo travel safety, but to create it.
As female solo travelers, many of us strive to build safety into our travel experiences. We learn to practice safe habits.
“Danger” is built into every woman’s history, the homes we supposedly find safety in and the cities we live in… it’s in our daily lifestyle.
Let me know what you think. Do you think it’s safe for a woman to travel alone?
