Description

Are you a woman thinking of taking your first solo trip abroad but don’t know where to start?

Are you considering safety, how you'll meet people, access your money or take local transportation?

After travelling to 34 countries, mostly on my own, the number one question I get asked is "How do you do it alone?” So, I created this video course for women to share 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!

This course consists of short, high quality videos that provide practical information and real-world examples. It also includes resources such as the Lean (Carry-on Only) Packing List and a discussion board to ask and discuss any burning questions or topics.

After watching these videos, you’ll know more about:

  • important and useful actions to take before leaving home
  • how to choose the right accommodations for your style of travel
  • ways to meet new people
  • safety, including how to avoid being an easy target for criminals and protecting your valuables

In a nut shell, you’ll have all the essential know-how needed to confidently travel solo.

Who is the target audience?
  • For women who want to learn tips and strategies for safely and affordably travelling on your own while creating memories
