Solo Travel Destination-Alaska in Winter. For many solos, you plan the next trip in winter to bask in the sun or stroll miles of palm covered beaches. However, for adventure travel, the wintry months bring up a

host of other options. From heli-skiing to mushing your way dog sledding through ice and snow, there are endless ways to go. I once had a sojourn to Siberia in January. Not everyone was looking to go there then. En route at passport control in Moscow, I saw a long line for “citizens” while my co-worker and I were the only ones at the line for foreigners!

Travel Insurance Mistakes to Avoid After Thomas Cook: The sudden failure of fabled Thomas Cook underscores the need for travel insurance.  But finding your way through the thicket of competing policies can be hard. Here are our 5 updated tips.

 

Solo Travel Insurance Recommendation

Read the definitions/exclusions carefully.

Tip One:

Watch out for “known risks”. For example, what if you had a flight on British Air Sept. 2019 and read about the planned strike.  You rush out and buy travel insurance. You could not recover for the loss because you were aware of the risk when you bought the policy.

Tip Two:

Not all companion coverage are equal. Your claim can depend upon not just the relationship you have but also how his/her unavailability came about and when...

First Solo Traveler: Whether you are a first time solo traveler or a little out of practice, taking baby steps can get you moving ahead.

I surfed the Net and found just the right place for me: “nearby” Iceland. It’s true I made a few false steps as I headed out one February day skis in hand. (I failed to ask when the sun rose...

Packing Baby Travel Kit

Packing Baby Travel Kit. Sure you can bring more than 3.4 ounces of formula, expressed breast milk, baby food, and medicines for your infant or toddler in your carry-on bag (see specifics here). But I recommend keeping a ready-to-go cabin-friendly baby travel kit in your diaper bag. It helps streamline your travels every time you leave the house together–especially when you’re airport bound and have enough other things to remember.

Here is a sample modified “travel kit” for your diaper bag, with some items you may like to have on board, especially for longer flights...

Female Solo Travelers 5 Safety Tips, for Over two decades, I have explored the remote islands of Rarotonga and Aitutaki, skied an active volcano, dodged epidemics and navigated a low-grade civil war. I fought off muggers in broad daylight in Europe and barely missed being a feast for crocodiles.  Aside from the latter, many safety issues worldwide are the same as those that exist at home. However, when jetlag combines with an unfamiliar setting, a traveler may become easy prey.

Although I have come through my travels unscathed, we women solo travelers need to be realistic about safety. From my repeated sojourns, I have gleaned a list of practical considerations.
