10 Safety Measure I Take as a Single Woman on a Road Trip

Everyone will tell you to travel safely, but what does that mean and how do you do it?

Solo travel is a personal and sacred experience. It allows you solitude, the freedom to create your own adventure, and enables you to discover your true self.
