Episode 001: Why Go Solo


In the inaugural episode of Solo Travel Talk, we discuss why people should consider going solo and how this solo travel podcast and our other platforms can help someone considering traveling alone. Hear about how traveling to Germany alone is what kicked off my solo travel passion.

We share some of the many benefits of going it alone some of which we bet you haven't considered and what keeps some people from venturing out on their own. Hear a story about an experience in the Middle East that might not have been the same with a travel companion. The show wraps with a good tease on all the topics coming up in future episodes including safety, packing, budgeting, how to get the most out of your solo status, and more!
