Some of my greatest life experiences have come from solo travel. I’ll admit, the first steps you take are tentative and it takes some confidence to make your first solo trip, but once you do, you really do discover that the world is your oyster. There are so many incredible things to see and do and experience across all continents that you can solo travel all your life and still feel you’ve underachieved. I’ve picked out some choice solo adventures – not nearly enough ^_^. Some of these adventures involve groups of people – you can sign up to them as an individual but there are safety considerations so it’s best to be in a group. Pack your bags and get ready to spread your travel wings.

Sarah Only two destinations in Africa??? Not enough research
Neecey @Sarah Wanjiku, there are too many places in Africa where it is not safe for solo female travelers. Things are changing but it is still better to err on the side of caution. I am a very experienced solo traveler and there are fabulous places all over Africa where I'd love to go but would not dare venture to on my own.
fakeha Ahh!! I wanna go to ALL these places! 😍 thanks for sharing!
GJP This is absolutely awesome. Thank you so much.
Nancy I am an independent woman and London is my next travel destination!!! Wish me luck!
Neecey @Nancy, Good luck! You'll love London.
Sharia Aw heck. My bucket list already needs a bigger bucket.
Neecey @Sharia, Your bucket list can never be too big. There's always a bigger bucket!
