Like to Fly Solo on the Road? Take this Survey!

Solo Travel, Websites and Blogs — By on August 21, 2009 at 1:05 pm

Solo Female TravelerWe recently posted a few blog entries about why we think its so friggin’ cool to travel on your own as a woman-and several of you wrote into to share reasons of your own.

We’re thrilled that so many Lost Girls are packing up and hitting the road on their own. What better way is there to see the world then on your own time, and by your own rules?

Whether you’re totally Miss Independent on the backpacker trail, a little nervous about your very first solo adventure or loathe the very idea of going it alone, we want to hear about it! Our friends over at have crafted a survey (click here to find it) which is designed to help them-and us-understand why you feel the way you do about Solo Travel, and where you’d like to go if you had the chance to wing it anywhere in the world.

Over the next several weeks, we’ll be working with HostelBookers to bring you the results of the survey, and doing some additional coverage on the best places to go if you’re traveling by yourself.

Answer the questions, then drop us a line to let us know! We’ll be giving away a copy of the new travel book, High Heels and Head Torch, to one of you (and there’s chances to win more copies of the book through HostelBookers once you finish the survey).

Thanks all!

    I'm off to Brasil for 10 days over New Year's. This will be my 1st time traveling solo in a country where I don't speak the language. I've traveled solo in the US, Argentina, and China. I am excited and nervous at the same time! I know it's going to be an extraordinary trip, so I just keep reminding myself that when I feel nervous. 🙂

    I just came across your blog, and I'm so happy I did! I am leaving on Thursday for my first solo adventure, and I have been pretty nervous about it. I am heading to Barcelona for a week. I am 36 years old, single, living in Chicago, and also in the Media industry! Your blog is making me feel empowered already! 🙂

    Solo travel certainly has its benefits. For one thing, you don't have to worry about scheduling what you want to do around other people. A trip to Rome with 6 people led to a lot of downtime and lack of decisionmaking. However, I drove solo from Illinois to Arizona at age 19 and by the time I got there all I wanted to do was TALK TO SOMEONE! This was before the days of cell phones and e-mail! If you travel solo, just be safe.
