    Travelling as a single woman in your late 20s and early 30s, and the stigma of being single

    The fifth episode of The Well-Travelled Podcast is all about how a woman's relationship status can influence her travel plans in her late 20s and early 30s.

I also draw on my personal experiences in and out of relationships to suggest tips to avoid perpetuating the stigma, and I reflect on my tactics for travelling while single.
