5 amazing solo travel experiences in Africa

February is typically the month of romance.  However, as I am personally not a big fan of so-called ‘Hallmark Holidays,’ it seems fitting to reflect on embracing solitude – while travelling.  There could be no better continent than African to find oneself (safely) alone amongst wild things.  Here are my reflections on five of the […] The post 5 amazing solo travel experiences in Africa appeared first on A Luxury Travel Blog.

The most remote train journeys

Train travel has a fresh spotlight on the tourism stage thanks to movements in slow and sustainable travel. One of our greenest choices, trains make us nomads back on the ground level.

These epic train adventures epitomize this spirit, giving us the best of both journey and destination. 1. Trans-Siberian Railway — Russia, Mongolia, a...

I’m in nothing but my soaked bathing suit and my woolen hat dancing to an upbeat tune, and after about one minute of a fun-filled, ungraceful jig, I can feel my body getting warmer. The 12 people similarly shaking it on Que Caliente beside me must be heating up again, too — everybody has a huge smile on thei...

How to Make Friends and Meet People While Traveling

One of the questions I get asked most often is how I make so many friends while traveling on my own. I travel solo most of the time, and while you think it might be lonely, it’s not. I’m able to meet so many people on my travels. Here’s the truth — I’m not the most social person in the world. I’m an introvert who always has her nose in a book and needs a few days to recover after a party. Most readers who meet me say I’m much quieter than they expected, and making friends isn’t the easiest th...
