World Hum Roundtable...Part Two.

Last month I posted about a discussion over at World Hum amongst four successful travel writers - Terry Ward, Catherine Watson, Stephanie Elizondo Griest, and Liz Sinclair -about the pleasures and pitfuls of a woman traveling solo.

Since then, they have added two more posts - (De)Parting Words by Liz Sinclair and Hitting the Road by Catherine Watson - summing up why everyone should try solo travel.

In the words of Catherine Watson "...traveling alone forces you out of your comfort zone. It requires you to talk to people. And—a selfish reason, but a real one—it leaves your mind free. You don’t have to feel guilty or torn because you got interested in some bit of serendipity when you were supposed to meet your traveling companion and had to choose between pulling yourself away—or standing them up. The autonomy of this is amazing."
