The Solo Traveler’s Hand Book - A Book Review
The Solo Traveler’s Hand Book
Janice Leith Waugh
The prospect of traveling alone can be an intimidating and scary thought especially when traveling to a place you have never been to before or traveling to a place where no one speaks the same language as you or there are real and present dangers. But, as the author of The Solo Traveler’s Handbook points out, traveling alone can be one of the greatest things one can do in life.
The Solo Traveler's Handbook: For Those Who Love And Those Who Long To Go Solo
Although this book only contains 116 pages, the information packed inside its small package makes you think you are reading an encyclopedia-size book covering every topic imaginable on a subject of high importance for independent travelers. Some of the topics covered in the book include:
-tips on getting started on a solo journey
-best places to go solo
-money management tips (including ways to save money for an upcoming trip and ways to save money while traveling).
-packaged travel vs. independent solo travel
-how to avoid the single supplement
-how to beat loneliness on the road
-self portrait photography
-potential dangers one may face
Also included are some personal solo travel stories from the author and several other travelers and a ton of resources. So, as you can see, The Solo Traveler’s Handbook is a must read for anyone thinking of traveling alone but also for any traveler seeking new tips on how to make their trips safer and more enjoyable.
