Fall has finally arrived! The most beautiful time of the year! It is also the weekend and the perfect time to get out into the forest and do a little bit of forest bathing. That’s what I am going to be doing this weekend!
What better place to spend a weekend than in Banff, Alberta, Canada? Is two days enough time to see the Rocky Mountains? It was literally heaven on earth and two days just wasn’t enough time! So the answer is NO, but since two days was was all that I had, I was determined to experience as much as I could.
There has been a sudden rise in the solo travel industry in recent years, especially among women. Whether you are single or married, I highly recommend taking that solo trip, at least once in your lifetime. Women especially need that time to decompress, refocus, re-energize and just simply let loose. Yes, I can guarantee that you will experience some good, some bad, and some ugly, but don’t let that stop you!
Safety Tips for the Solo Traveller
Travel can be a little intimidating and stressful, as we all have a fear of the unknown. This is even truer for those who choose to travel solo.
To assist in you in feeling more at ease when travelling solo, I have assembled a list of safety tips which will make the thought of travelling solo a little less intimidating.
What keeps you from travelling solo? Or from doing anything solo for that matter? Fear? The majority of the time, the answer is fear, plain and simple! Fear of the unknown.
We are all protected by our little bubble and very seldom do we find the courage to step out of that bubble into the world of the unknown, no matter how strong our desire is to do so. I am here to tell you that bubble can be burst!

Yes, you read that right friends! I recently returned from my first solo cruise with Princess Cruises, on board the Emerald Princess. Who wouldn’t want to cruise solo on the ship that is known to us baby boomers as the Loveboat? You gotta love being in the midst of all of that love in the air. This was my fifth cruise with Princess, but my first solo cruise, and boy it was fantastic!
