Description

Are you a woman thinking of taking your first solo trip abroad? Are you considering safety, how you'll meet people, access your money and take local transportation?

After budget travelling to 34 countries, mostly solo, the number one question I get is “How do you do it alone?” In response, I've designed this video course to share with women tips, techniques and strategies for travelling the world on your own terms while remaining safe, protecting your valuables and having epic adventures along the way. All on a budget!

The course consists of videos that provide practical and real-world demonstrations from my travels.  It covers four main areas: things to consider before you go, accommodations, meeting people and safety.

After reviewing these videos, you will know about some essential and useful actions to take before leaving home, feel confident in your ability to choose the right accommodations for the trip you seek, have tools for meeting people and know some precautions to take to prevent being an easy target for criminals.

Learning about the best ways to travel as a solo women requires talking and learning from each other. Please use the discussion board to post questions or leave comments and I along with other members of our course, will respond. Or feel free to email me directly, I love talking travel and am always here to help!
