This is an indispensable handbook full of information that can save you time, trouble and maybe even your life Women make up the largest segment of the traveling population and many of them are choosing to travel alone When I was a student for a summer session in England I walked the streets of London cloaked in a red riding hood cape that covered me from head to toe This might seem a bit over the top, but I truly did not want to be raped, mugged or noticed by would be Romeos Marybeth Bond d This is an indispensable handbook full of information that can save you time, trouble and maybe even your life Women make up the largest segment of the traveling population and many of them are choosing to travel alone When I was a student fo
I found it a little odd that the author, who includes quotes in boxes on pages throughout the book, quoted herself an awful lot Still, I continued skimming through the travel tips, which are really about as common sense as you could get That is, until I got to the page where she recommends a writing basic vocabulary words in another language ON YOUR ARM, and b wearing a fanny pack, because that will make you less of a target for thieves Now, point A is ridiculous, but point B COME ON.Need I found it a little odd that the author, who includes quotes in boxes on
I was very disappointed in this book, possibly because the title was so inaccurate This is a book of common sense travel tips Come on, did you really need to tell me that excessive use of taxis can put a crimp in my bud
This is obviously not a literary book it s just a little book with tips and advice for female travellers particularly ones going solo I read this in preparation for a trip to Europe that I plan on taking, alone Definitely inspiring and helpful Some decent tips, particularly if traveling alone, but some of this is also common sense I d recommend checking it out from the library or sitting down for a short read in Barnes and Noble rather than buying it, you can find what your looking for by skimming it in about 15 minutes. Not too sue where the gutsy women come in these tips are mostly common sense Maybe it s because the book was written in 1996 and the wisdom in it is muchwell known now than it was then Still it s a quick read and has some valuable information for the first time traveler. Quick read, tips for packing and traveling safely but mostly about gaining confidence. Helpful with some good tips Glad she had some quips from people older in their 70s. I just skimmed this because I am not traveling in the way she is talking about non outdoors any time soon, but her advice are great I wish I read this prior to some of my own traveling experiences, especially to India Definitely worth checking out will make you mustbrave as a solo female traveler. Maybe I read these books for women because I think I m trespassing on forbidden territory, but this one also is full of good advice Much of it is good advice for men as well as for women Everyone, not just women should know about this before they hit the road.
