A very good read for women who like to travel but may not always have a readily available companion. Good read for anyone wanting to know about safe and fun places to go. This book is nice because it rates places on different types of things a person traveling looks for. (I.E. museums as opposed to beaches or bars) I got to read about some must do activities in areas i have always wanted to go and read about a couple places i never really thought about visiting that have quickly moved up on my l [...]
While I am eager to see the world, I am less eager to view it as my own personal hunting ground (the prey being a plethora of foreign men, apparently). Personally, I am in no need to learn "Do you have any condoms?" in Dutch because, frankly, I'm just not that type of girl (Hebt u om het even welke condoms? fyi). Understandably, there is going to be this type of single female traveler (I met a few in Dublin), but for the quieter, more introspective traveler who is honestly just out to see the wo [...]
I started looking at this the other night and it just wasn't appealing. It starts off with a quiz to find out what kind of traveller you are, but even before that it turned me off because it seemed to emphasize travel for the sake of meeting special someones, which isn't really my first priority. I mean, the title indicates that these are going to be places where a girl travels alone. Not that you don't meet people during your travels It may have some good things to say, but I'm disinterested fo [...]
If you are at all adventurous or on a budget, stay away from this book. It's a nice collection of places for someone who is new to traveling, but traveling isn't just about having sex with random guys in other countries. The tone of this book is not for an experienced traveler.
Written by Teresa Rodriguez Williamson (founder of TangoDiva), Fly Solo 'serves set menu' from appetizers to desserts for female who wants to travel by herself but still is afraid to start it.On the introductory pages, there’s a list of reasons why the writer picked those destinations that includes safety, transportation, social center, variety, friendliness, cost, climate, size, communication, medical and health. Continue with 12 questions that can help in determining the best destinations fo [...]
This book is pure fun! I didn't expect to enjoy a book about any kind of travel that wasn't budget and exotic, but I did like the aspect of solo women's travel.There is a short chapter on each destination -- there are 50 in all, and most of them are cities. Each chapter features the top 10 unique things that you must do, and they rate each destination in terms of activity, weather, social atmosphere and culture.You can tell that the author and her team are much stronger on the European destinati [...]
If you love to travel, or even just dream of doing so, & you're female, then this is a pretty fun read you might want to try. There's plenty of helpful tips & ideas about traveling all over the world. As it is intended for females traveling alone there's an assumption that you might be single & thus there's quite a few suggestions on where to go to meet cute local men which I found utterly ridiculous, but as some people might actually want that info I'm ok with it. Take whatever help [...]
this is suitable for young woman traveler who wants to travel around the world: alone. as i wish to do the same, this handbook is really useful, at least it provides highlights of the trip to make things easier. i haven't really read all the section but "Asia". it makes me wanna hit Thailand and Vietnam as soon as possible. So if you are still want to fly solo, this "Fly Solo" will leads you to be at wherever you want to be - all alone!
3.5. Overall, it was organized well and had some good sights on the list, but it was a little too focused on shopping and partying in these various locales, which isn't my main goal when I travel. There are some locations in here that when I go (not IF I go) I will certainly check back with the book and see what she had to say, and others that I will skip.
It gives a lot of great travel ideas and destinations, with weblinks but doesn't distinguish what is best for those who are on a budget. Things that are really expensive are mixed in with good deals, so you need to do your own research. Also the language used gets annoying after awhilery Spice Girl-y, 'girlpower'! You GO girl
I really like the layout of this book. She gives great overviews of each area. She then gives the break down of the area's overall culture, activity, weather and social aspects. She also gives you 10 experiences that you must do while there and some great tips in what to expect She did spend a little too much time on the party aspects but that's to be expected when it's about solo travel.
I would like to see a sequel that's something along the lines of the 50 most dangerous places on earth for a girl to travel alone. I'm not one to play it safe when it comes to travel. However, this book does have some excellent suggestions on things to do in locations all over the world. It's another one of those bad books to read if you're trying to avoid excuses to travel.
I like to travel so I wanted to read this book for some recommendations of places for solo travelers. I found the book to be useful for solo traveler and as general travel guide for some destination spots. I borrow the book from the library but I would definitely buy as a travel reference guide.
What a fun book! I prefer traveling solo at times and this is the perfect companion for those adventures. The author chronicles the best places for women to travel alone keeping safety, fun and adventure in mind.
The title had me hooked, however once I opened the book and began reading I was entirely disappointed. If you've traveled anywhere and do a bit of research on your own, don't bother. The information isn't even detailed enough to be helpful.
women, travel, traveling solo, boring, written for single rich white women not me
Lots of helpfull hints and tips for those wanting to take their own adventure. I use it more as a reference when planning a trip or for ideas on where to go next!
Exactly the travel book I've been looking for! I highly recommend for any young woman who's traveling to these places, even if she's not going solo.
A book with general tourist knowledge; good variety of cities. I didn't finish it because it's written for a party girl looking for men and drinks. The tone put me off.
LOVED IT! makes me want to travel alone =)
I thought it was going to be kind of personal but it's not much different from a regular guide book in a way Maybe I expected too much.
