For those of you that have been following me on my Astrid on the Go personal blog , I’m excited to announce that my blogging focus will now be on the topic of affordable luxury for the solo traveler, a subject many of my readers have enjoyed. Astrid Solo Travel Advisor, AstridTravel.com, was officially launched on January 28, 2016. The site is designed for solo travelers looking for affordable luxury ideas, products and services while they travel alone worldwide.
One Stop Website for the Luxury Solo Traveler
Astrid and her Astrid Solo Travel Advisor bloggers will continue the tradition of bringing you tales, tips and tricks for traveling solo with character and class, now on this beautifully designed website built to be your one stop shop for solo travel.
According to Visa, one in five are now traveling solo and our site features tales from past and current trips, videos, travel tips and planning resources designed just for this growing group of travelers. Astrid Solo Travel Advisor has a vision to help solo travelers feel confident, safe, inspired, engaged. We want readers to never feel like a tourist when they explore a new city solo.
Astrid R. Clements - Astrid Solo Travel Advisor Founder
As we introduce Astrid Solo Travel Advisor to the world, we must put a spotlight on its CEO and founder, Astrid R. Clements, who has traveled extensively throughout the the United States and the world for the last 40 years, much of which has been solo. Here, Astrid will continue to share her Travel For One ideas, tips and experiences that stress luxury travel at a reasonable price. Read more about Astrid on our About Page.
“Traveling solo is truly a transformative experience, and I want to bring that understanding to my readers,” says Astrid. “Being a senior hasn’t slowed down my thirst for new experiences. My unique approach to travel, with a tech-savvy edge, will show solo travelers new ways to explore other cultures with character and class, or how to just get away for a memorable weekend trip!”
Astrid Solo Travel Advisor Website’s Unique Features
The site features insightful travel blogs by Astrid and other company bloggers, an interactive destinations map, informative videos, a built-in translation capability for over 80 languages, Astrid’s weekly podcast, Solo Travel Talk, with a generally unique approach to affordable luxury ideas for solo travelers.
To kick off the launch, Astrid went on an Around the World adventure, traveling solo for 50 days. She traveled a total of 22,000 miles visiting six distinctly different cultures and seven cities over nearly two months.
The seven cities included:
Cairo, Egypt (coupled with a cruise down the Nile River!)
Abu Dhabi, UAE
Astrid dug deep into each location’s culture, food, sights, art, architecture, shopping venues and found that special something about each place that she shares in her post-ATW trip blogs.
