Beth Whitman does an excellent job covering all of the potential details women and other first time travelers must consider before hitting the road. Packing, safety, selecting a particular type of trip, online resources and more.

One thing she discusses is something my husband and I were determined to deal with before we left on our adventure. However, I’m embarrassed to admit that with the chaos of the move, retirement, dog relocation, etc. . . we actually forgot to get it. That something is travel insurance. With some of the anecdotal sections on this topic, Beth reminded us just how closely we courted disaster.

Other great topics are covered as well, including responsible travel, making friends while going solo, product recommendations  (love that lip balm sized stain remover idea) and more. We pride ourselves on being fairly savvy and informed travelers, but I have to admit, Beth Whitman taught us a thing or two. If you’ve never traveled before, or are looking for some additional skills, tips or resources, pick up this solo travel guide for women. It will help you get excited, and informed, about hitting the road.

P.S. Because so many of the tips and philosophies shared in this book are very similar to our own, we sense a kindred spirit in this fellow globe trotter. Now that I’ve finished the book, my husband can’t wait to pick it up and review it as well. Great job, Beth!

    Thanks, Myscha. I hope that our paths cross somewhere other than on the WWW! I believe we are, indeed, kindred spirits!
