I have read a lot about the pros and cons of solo travelling but I just would like to know if there are any travellers out there that are senior in age (50+), female, travelling solo but independently, not with organised tours of any kind?
As many senior travellers have shared, my hubby is the stay at home kind but quite supportive of my itch to travel and see the world. I did find a travel companion, met the tc prior to undertaking our trip but found it to be quite challenging. Since then, I decided perhaps solo traveling is the way to go.
The thing is I do hate guided tours for many of the obvious reasons stated by other forum members here and other travel sites, but I am also feeling pretty apprehensive about venturing alone especially to countries where hardly any English is spoken or if the locals do speak English, they would prefer not to have anything to do with English spoken travellers.
So, whilst gathering courage and motivation to venture out on my own, I would dearly love to hear some success stories and also any tips and advice that any of the experienced senior solo female independent traveller would like to share?
