I have just come across this great website which has lots of info for the solo woman traveller on a budget. Women on the Road.
Leyla who has put together this site says: Most backpacking information is geared to men. We women are lucky if we get a tiny mention here and there just for ourselves. But we’re different!
We need to be more careful at night, we have to fight off more unwanted attention, or travel may just be more challenging for us.
Why am I telling you this? Because I’ve been around the world several times and I still haven’t had enough. My longest backpacking trip at the age of 43 was supposed to be for a few months – but I was gone three years.
There are links to pages on ethical travel, budget accommodation, pilgrimage routes, volunteering and more. This is a great site for women with a yearning to travel, but on a budget – a budget not just to save money, but to live close to those you will meet and to be involved in the worlds you travel through.
