    Hi Kiki! As a solo female traveler (but mostly around Southeast Asia so far), I could totally relate to most of your anecdotes. I’ve been dreaming of making it solo in Europe next time, but I think I need to exercise more precaution in the future. This pandemic has got me researching more and preparing, hence I stumbled upon your post. Thanks for sharing your thoughts! Safe travels! 🙂

      Hi Sherr! Thank you for the kind words. And as much as I love being spontaneous, doing your research and figuring out plans ahead of time is SUPER helpful! 🙂

    Hi Kiki,
    I’ve been reading your blog for a few years now!
    I’m super tempted to travel to Asia on my own, but I’m 34 and do NOT like the idea of being woken up at all hours in a dorm in a hostel… and i’m worried that a hotel would be out of my price-range? do you have any suggestions, please? thank you!

    • Many hostels offer private rooms! That’s one option. And depending on where you’re traveling, you might be surprised how cheap some accommodation can be. I still always check hotels too!
