Cultural Travel, Going Solo

Ok, I’ll admit, I turned into a Senior about 5 years ago. It is not something you really think about, it just happens. Being a woman over 50, and an avid cultural traveler, I can honestly say that there have been a few experiences that I would have liked to have had a guide. The moments when you are in a culture in the middle of the night with a problem of directions, or getting to a hotel, or even knowing where to go, can be best served by some kind of guide that covers all of the bases before you go. It is quite a different experience to be a woman traveling alone, versus in a group. But many of us prefer to travel by ourselves. Sometimes having a travel partner can be a real pain if you aren’t in sync with the other person’s ideas of places to go and things to do. Harriet Lewis has made life a whole lot easier for the woman over 50 who is travelling alone. Cultural travel has never been so easy. Lewis has provided us with 101 free Women travelling tips, and its really a wonderful guide.

“101 Tips for Women Travelers” is a 126-page, 5″x 7″ booklet designed to fit in a woman’s purse. Tips featured include ideas on trip preparation, packing, money, transportation, health, beauty, security and safety, traveling solo, food and drink, etiquette and social tips, and more. There’s a handy reference section with a foreign phrase guide, international size chart, time zones, conversion chart, packing essentials, and more. Chapter headings inspire with anecdotes about some of history’s most remarkable women travelers, such as the Queen of Sheba, Cleopatra, and Amelia Earhart in addition to less well-known, but equally fascinating, female travelers throughout history.


Going solo as a cultural traveler does not have to be the most challenging experience you’ll ever have. Rather, use a guide that is free. Harriet Lewis has given senior women a wonderful gift for traveling solo. Go here to read more about where to get your free guide.
