    • Places & Travel

Traveling solo is one of the most rewarding things a person can do. However, when you are a female who enjoys traveling solo, you are hit with loads of stereotypes. From “oh, it’s not safe for women to travel alone” to “you must get really lonely with no friends with you” to “Don’t you have any responsibilities?” - the list of assumptions is endless.

In today’s episode, we are joined by Sahara Leigh, travel coach and founder of Holistic Mojo as we smash all the stereotypes regarding solo travel. Hear the good, the bad and the ugly of traveling solo plus, learn how you can align your travel experience with passions, instead of doing what society deems as appropriate and safe.
