Solo Women Tours

Are Solo Women Tours Right For You?

Are you scared to be on your own?
Do you crave for some ‘ME’ time?
Are continually trying to please others?
Do you get anxiety when you think of traveling alone?

 

Solo women tours might be right for you!

Get over your fears and see the world, with solo women tours.

 

Here is what I have learned in my years of life experience and from studying Neuro-Linguistic programming, yogi vidya (knowledge), TimeLine Therapy®, neuroscience, and Ayurvedic science:

The FEAR of ‘being alone’ comes from your conditioning. Negative emotions from the past have become your state and beliefs.

The need for ‘me time’ comes from you neglecting yourself over the years. And years and years of putting everything before you makes you burnt out.

The need to please everyone has become your comfort zone. You think, I have to do everything for my parent, for my husband, for my children, for my friends…on and on. What about doing something for yourself?

Give yourself – time and love.

True happiness comes from within you. True love comes from within you. And real freedom comes from within you. When everything comes from within you then WHY do we spend years chasing love, happiness and freedom outside of ourselves?

Be empowered by solo travel

I want to share my passion with you, and inspire and encourage you to come along on our solo women tours at least once a year because solo traveling empowers. 

The word ‘solo’ doesn’t mean it’s only for single people. It just means doing things that you love, for yourself, by yourself, without compromise or conditions and without anyone telling you what you can and cannot do.

This is called SELF LOVE, and it comes from a place of love and gratitude. It’s not SELFISH because selfishness comes from a place of fear and hurt.

Supported Solo Travel

Our solo women tours let you travel alone, without compromise, while still being supported by other fellow ‘solo’ travellers. That means that if something happens you have back up. In case you get sick, lose important documentation or simply need someone to grab you some Panadol. I’m along on every tour to help you with logistics and advice, and to give you guidance and support.

Why Travel Solo on Solo Women Tours

There are many reasons that people choose our solo women tours. For me, it was to find me again. When I booked my very first solo travel trip, I was trying to run away from everyone and everything. All I wanted was to have some peace and some me time.

But after that first trip, I realised solo traveling was incredibly fun. And it was so much more than just having ‘ME’ time. Believe it or not if you travel solo far enough, you’ll eventually meet your true self. That is the real reason we love to travel solo.

Solo Travel Must Haves

My Moto: Travel Safe, Travel Smart, Travel Solo

Travel Safe. This is the most important thing on every traveller’s agenda. But it’s even more critical when you are traveling solo or travelling on our solo women tours. Here are some tips to travel safe on solo travel.

Get travel insurance

No ifs, ands or buts. Travel insurance is a must have.

Copy all your travel documents

Leave one with a friend, one in your suitcase and one as a digital copy. Always carry the originals on your person.

Blend in with the locals

Don’t draw attention to the fact that you’re a tourist.

Become familiar with each country's government site

These sites are important and helpful. Be sure to take advantage of them for each country you travel to.

Travel smart

This is just common sense. And our solo women tours can help you travel smart.

Do not carry lots of cash

I use Travel Card. It is easy to use, with no extra costs attached. So when you use this card you are spending your money, not racking up a credit card bill. It works like a credit card – you can pay with it, and you can withdraw cash from ATMs.

Have a daily reporting system

Make sure a friend or family member knows where you are at all times. Let them know the name of the hotel, the town, city, country, and how to reach you should they need to.

Invest in a perfect bag

The perfect bag needs to be able to hold all your valuables. I use the Travel Navigator Neck Wallet and Passport Holder with RFID Blocking for Security. I wear this under my top or dress.

If you are getting a taxi alone

If you are getting a taxi alone use a different drop off at a different street number on the same street. Do not accept offers for a free ride to your hotel from people at the airport, train station or the like.

Do not wear expensive jewellery

Don’t draw attention to the fact that you are rich.

Travel solo

The only way to truly learn and grow is to get out of your comfort zone.

Invest in a good suitcase

Traveling solo on our solo women tours means you’re going to have to carry all your bags most of the time. That means up and down the stairs at the airport and train stations, onto buses and taxis and into some hotels. Investing in a good suitcase is vitally important.

Be organised

Your carry bag should have a water bottle, umbrella, phone (fully charged), detailed local map, camera, notebook and pen at all times.

Make friends

Make friends with other solo travellers. Making new connections is fun and lets you give and receive support at you travel.

Use the local language

Try it. Something is better than nothing.

How to Start Solo Travel

‘The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.’ ― Lao Tzu

 

Pick a Destination

I am a big believer in baby steps. So, I recommend starting small. Pick a destination that you haven’t been to before but somewhere within two hours of home, whether by car or plane.

When you are picking a destination, think about things you like to do. For example, do you enjoy visiting museums or would you prefer to go to a musical or hang out on the beach? Whatever it is, find the place that gives you a chance to do more of those things.

Research your destination

1. Research the destination you have picked for your very first solo visit well. Be sure to check the government sites not just social media sites.

Book Accommodation

2.Book your accommodation right in the middle of the city centre. This might be expensive, but it’s worth it. You will get more of an experience when you simply have to walk out of the lobby and find you are there. If you book a cheaper place uptown or downtown or in the suburbs, you will find you are always in your hotel room.

Educate Yourself

3. Educate yourself because knowledge is power. Learn the local language and learn the culture, clothing, food, wine and more. Respect is the key here.​

Get Travel Insurance

4. Don’t leave home without a travel insurance.

Think About Communications

5. Write down the name and address of your hotel and when telling a taxi driver or bus driver where to go, you can show them the address to confirm (especially if there is a language barrier).​

Pack for All Seasons

6. Always pack for all seasons, including a sun hat, sun cream, umbrella, rain jacket and warm coat.

Have a Back Up

7. Make sure someone at home knows your itinerary and your hotel information.

Be Wary of Social Media

8. When you are traveling solo, do not check in on social media. Telling people where you are and when you are there can be dangerous.​

Have an Open Mind

9.Remember you do not go on a solo women’s tour to get exactly what you have at home. An open mind is a must.

Find Accommodation

It gets very confusing when it comes to booking accommodation. My personal choice is to stay in the middle of the city or town I am visiting so I can enjoy everything the city has to offer. As a solo traveller, I find if you are staying away from where all the action is at night you never get out to enjoy it.

 

These are my four top choices when it comes to booking accommodation.

Find Cheap Flights

Booking a flight is not as simple as getting the cheapest flight available. Flight times, stopovers, safety, food, baggage allowance and even the size of the aircraft for long-haul flights are things I look for when I am booking my flights.

Traveling with Me, Myself and I contains affiliate links. If you purchase products, like travel insurance, or book your flight or hotel using the links provided, I will earn a small commission. This costs you NOTHING extra.

My recommendations are for products that I use or that have been highly rated and are my own opinion always. These commissions help me run my website so I can help provide all solo women travellers with helpful tips on how to travel safe, travel smart and travel solo.

Thank you for your support, your business and your friendship. Yogita XX
