In a few years, I am planning to start traveling the country on my own. So, I’ve been doing a lot of research. One of my searches took me to, what am I going to “NEED” when I’m traveling alone. Not necessarily what I “WANT” when I’m traveling. Here is the list I came up with that every solo woman traveler needs:
Solo Woman Traveler Needs
Leather Journal Notebook – As a solo traveler, you may keep in contact with family and friends back home. However, there’s going to be a time you want to get your thoughts down on paper. Whether it’s daily, weekly, or monthly.
Safety Whistle – A solo traveler can never go wrong with safety. Having a Safety Whistle on hand will scare any potential danger to you from another individual.
Airbnb $100 Gift Card – Sometimes it’s nice to stay somewhere that seems more personal. Not always at a hotel. Or, if they’re backpacking across a country, this is the perfect thing to have on hand for that solo woman traveler.
Water Resistant Travel Backpack – For those who are into hiking, this travel backpack is perfect. It’s lightweight and water resistant. If you’re backpacking cross country. This is still the perfect bag for you. It will keep your things dry and the only weight is what you pack in it.
International Travel Charger – When traveling overseas, it’s good to have a travel adapter on hand for any foreign outlets you may come across. I think this would be a great tool to have on hand for charging your phones, tablets, and laptops.
Adult Coloring Book – For those times that downtime is needed after being on the go all the time. An adult coloring book is one of the best ways to relieve stress.
Headlamp – I had never heard this one. But apparently, headlamps are good to have on hand. Someone who was traveling and touring in a desert location suggested having one for ease of movement instead of using your phone. This way you can free up your hands. Another person said they lost power where they were staying and the headlamp was very useful.
These are just very few things that every solo woman traveler should have on hand. What items would you recommend to the solo woman traveler?
