It's a great starting point for novice travelers and an even better gift idea for both women & men.--Pack Hacker Whether you're single or live with a partner or family, one of the greatest opportunities for self-discovery and personal growth is to take a trip on one's own. For many people though, it's also one of the most intimidating and nervewracking experiences imaginable. The Solo Travel Handbook begins by asking What's stopping you? and addressing some of the most common travel-solophobias, from introversion to safety concerns to guilt at leaving loved ones behind. --Passport Magazine Lonely Planet's crew has put together a tidy little book filled with great information to guide those who, for whatever reason, want or need to travel alone.... This is a winner! --Tulsa Book Review Whether you're a backpacking college student or an empty nester out to explore the world, solo travel is on the rise and, according to Lonely Planet, only getting more popular. Now the travel media company has pooled its best expert travel tips for globetrotters going it alone...[includes] tips on everything from vaccinations, luggage and flight-booking hacks to non-awkward ways to meet people on the road. There are smart and clever ways to finesse your arrival in a strange city, and 20 ways to stay safe on the road. Overall, it's an incredibly helpful book, but our favorite parts are the itinerary-inspiration sections, which include a solo travel quiz to help you determine your vacation style. We feel confident in saying that if your answer to What's your favorite street food? is deep-fried scorpions, you shouldn't be traveling with anyone who answered hot dogs. (Good thing you're traveling solo, eh?) --Mercury News Are you a good prospect for solo travel, or does the idea of finding yourself alone in a foreign place figure in your worst nightmares? According to the folks at Lonely Planet, solo travel is the ultimate indulgence, allowing you to come and go as you please--no compromises needed. If that sounds like your idea of fun, then this guidebook will whet your appetite for your first adventure. It may also fill in the blanks for more experienced solo travelers....The Solo Travel Handbook will help you to design your best adventure ever. Read it and go! --Foreword Reviews Traveling by yourself can be exhilarating and daunting all at the same time, but this guidebook helps take away some of your worries and concerns while properly preparing you. It addresses your fears ( I'm not brave enough ), and provides you with a lot of resources to help you book your trip, pack and get the most out of your travel time. --TravelPulse
