    Episode 35: Unspoken Truths About Solo Travel

    Episode 35: Unspoken Truths About Solo Travel

    If I told you I didn’t cry during my first solo travel experience, I would be flat-out lying. The fact is, solo travel can be hard, overwhelming, and leave us wondering “what the hell did I do”. Regardless of how many hard moments I have faced during my solo travels, I would never change nor do I regret any of my experiences. Today's episode is not to turn you away from traveling solo however, I feel it is extremely important to be real and share the unspoken truths about solo travel. Basically, it's the sh*t no one talks about.

    There is no right or wrong way to travel however, the most important thing when choosing a travel style is making sure it is right for you. Nothing is worse than having a reason for traveling and then not being able to get the full experience because you picked the wrong style of travel. 

    In today's episode, we chat about the many different styles of travel so you can choose the best one for your next journey. Plus, I share my favorite solo travel destinations.

    Episode 32: "Oh Crap" Moments When Traveling

    Episode 32: "Oh Crap" Moments When Traveling

    Shit happens to everyone. Whether at home or traveling the world, nothing will ever go perfectly (if it does you are a lucky one). However, it's less about what happens and more about how you react to it that can make or break your overall experience.  

    In today's episode, I share the "oh crap" moments I have experienced while traveling. Hear about my experience with crazy cab drivers, losing my passport, and ripping my pants mid-excursion, 2 hours from my hotel (yes - that happened). From hilarious moments to some scary ones - I have gone through them all but, I NEVER let them ruin my time. You shouldn't either. 

    Check out the episode about my crazy flight experience.

Scratching my travel itch!

I love Sara’s Solo Travel Woman Podcast! She has wonderful recommendations! When I go in a solo trip or a trip with my gal pals, will definitely listen to an episode (or few!) to prepare! I highly recommend her podcast. The content is very engaging and helpful. Way to go Sara with 15K listeners! Cannot wait for many many more!

Makes me want to go explore the world

She has amazing tips and with real life experience, she knows exactly what’s she’s talking about. @ashmun1004

kerry_mcgovern ,

5 stars no doubt.

I feel as the desire to travel and explore is at the top of my list but the not knowing where to start or how to effectively travel is what stops me. This podcast has given me that reassurance i need to just do it and travel but travel smart. Life’s too Short and these podcasts are way too good!
