Part 1 wasn't enough?
Good, because we may have kept the best for last...
We've gathered some of our favorite solo female travel bloggers because they have a lot to share and we believe that they could be an inspiration to those who want travel to be a bigger part of their life.
Whether you're scared about undertaking a trip on your own (as a man or a woman), need help planning your trip, or need general travel advice and recommendations, you'll find what these women have to say extremely helpful.
Soumya from Travel, Books, And Food
Soumya didn’t exactly quit her corporate job for travel blogging, like you’d expect. Instead, she combines the flexibility of being an entrepreneur with frequent travels, and she documents for our greatest pleasure. Having a “weak Indian passport”, Soumya is a pretty good source on how to get visas for most of the world’s destinations and her blog is the perfect source for an Indian solo traveller. Although she was born in India, Soumya grew up in Tanzania. What's more? She's a vegetarian, and that doesn't stop her from tarvelling: she has plenty of tips and recommendations on the topic.
Steph from The Pink Backpack
The "modern-day hybrid of Bridget Jones and Indiana Jones" is the queen of misadventures - and we love her for it! Just to give you a few examples, the 30 year old PhD student was attacked by a chimpanzee in Tanzania, got food poisoning up in a mountain in Colombia, and narcosis while diving 120 ft deep in Belize. That kind of misadventures. But that won't stop Stephanie! While she ran into some troubles as a solo female travellers, she's in love with the freedom brought by travelling alone. The empowered woman has tons of brilliant experiences to share with aspiring travellers.
Gloria from The Blog Abroad
Gloria never wanted to travel in the first place. Now, she's a full-time nomad. Funny how life works, isn't it? The Black American solo female traveller has a lot to share: she's been in over 70 countries across 6 continents (and strongly believe that counting these countries doesn't make you a d**k). We love her take on travelling as a Black person and the fact that she is an optimist at heart. Fun read guaranteed!
Claire from Claire's Itchy Feet
Claire's feet didn't start itching until she turned 34 - but since then, she hasn't looked back. She embarked on the adventure of a lifetime, selling (almost) everything she owned. Now, she's a successful "digital nomad" - she works online, making money while travelling. And she wants to help other women do exactly what she does. The badass woman climbed volcanoes, throught she was going to die during an earthquake in Guatemala, and was stung by a scorpion. Several times. "Adventure" is Claire's middle name.
Anna from Postcards from the World
For the Polish woman, the world is too interesting to stay in one place. Studying or working is not an excuse not to travel: she's been doing it for a while! A summer spent looking after sea turtles in Tobago, where she stayed and blended with the locals, fueled her wanderlust. Mindfulness is a major part of her life and has made a travel experience much richer - so much that she's hustling to share her way of life with others. For example, it's about making yourself aware of the story behind everything: noticing the little things, looking deeper. It changes the way you experience your trip.
Joanna from Lose the Map
Joanna isn't just a solo female traveller, she's also an actress, writer, and a great photographer. But when she does travel, her mantra is clear: get into the local life and culture. Her blog is a gold mine of beautiful stories, written and visual. She's been in close to 40 countries and has much to share, no matter your travel style. If anything, take a moment to check out her travel photography skills!
Kassie from The Fly Away Life
The New Englander is only getting started - if you call over 20 countries only a start! She's determined to keep going and to inspire other women to do it to. But she doesn't stop there: she believes that women should be inspired to travel when they are little girls. Kassie is definitely a young solo female traveller to follow.
Amalia from Little Foot Adventures
Originally from Portugal, Amalia lives in Copenhagen, Denmark - for now. She's not restricted to a single travel style, sometimes leaving with only her backpack, sometimes staying at luxurious resorts. In five years, she's been in over 40 countries, especially in Europe, South America, and Africa, and has plenty of useful tips for these destinations.
When will YOU become a solo traveller?
If there is one thing clear, it's that travelling alone is a totally different experience than travelling with someone else or a whole group.
Not better. Not worse. Just different.
And just for this reason, as these inspiring solo female travellers usually recommend, you should try it once in your life. Like it did with them, it might bring you a new perspective.
Or change you forever!
