Some good advice for female solo travelers?

First of all, being a solo female traveler is a lot less dangerous than you might expect. Most people are genuinely good, and while there’s always a few bad ones in the mix, you’ll find that in your own town as well or you can find your travel partners to explore with the new angle as the best travel partners.

If you don’t feel safe, get out now! It’s okay to leave a day early, skip dinner or a museum, and return another time or not come back at all. If you ever get a bad feeling while walking, duck into a restaurant or store, and try to wait it out. It’s okay to book a different hotel that’s closer because you’re afraid of what’s in between you and where you’re going.
