with one of our all-time favorite responses to what it's like traveling as a solo female:
"i've driven the back roads solo with the wind in my hair, the music up and 'no service' on my cell phone.
sometimes the thought passes through my mind that i could break down or something bad could happen. scary. rather than pushing that thought away and saying it will never happen. i look at the road and tell myself, "that could happen. and if it does, i will figure it out. i am strong, capable and resourceful.”
the next time you see a solo female traveler, do not ask them “why are you traveling alone?” or “don't you get scared by yourself?”... tell them they are strong. tell them they can always call you if they need anything, even if that’s just someone to talk to. encourage them to think about and have a plan for every situation but do not discourage them from traveling. help them feel brave and be prepared for anything."
