From the Author
I came to travel solo out of necessity - I became a widow and an empty-nester at about the same time. I continue to do so out of love - a love of the many opportunities that solo travel offers more than any other travel style.
As a writer, sharing my experiences was natural. In the three-plus years since I started my blog, aptly called Solo Traveler, I've published more than 750 articles offering solo travel stories, safety advice and tips for fun, dining, meeting people, saving money and more. While Solo Traveler is a wonderful resource and forges a sense of community amongst solo travelers, it is sometimes difficult for readers to find the information they're looking for. This is the why I wrote The Solo Traveler's Handbook. It covers many aspects of solo travel from planning and packing to dining and safety. There are also stories peppered throughout the book to give you a sense of what solo travel can mean.

I hesitate to give the book less than four stars because the book it a public service. It's inspirational to those who find themselves alone and might not have traveled in a long time. As such it offers a great service and gives people stuff to consider and gives a lot of important pointers to those people. Other people who get out more might not find the book super helpful.
