Wanderlust and Lipstick: The Essential Guide for Women Traveling Solo

Beth Whitman is woman who enjoys exploring the world on her own. Having logged hundreds of thousands of solo miles around the globe, Whitman decided she needed to encourage other women to shed their inhibitions and experience the travel-joys she has. To do that, she’s developed a website, For Women Traveling Solo, which provides inspiration and tips, um, for women traveling solo. She also maintains a blog, which says she’s in India, enjoying the culture, and, like Justin, admiring the local plumbing situation. If you’re as crazy about Beth as she is about travel, you can check out her other blog, running on the Seattle PI’s website.

Somehow, in between traveling and blogging, Whitman still found the time to dash off a book, Wanderlust and Lipstick: The Essential Guide for Women Traveling Solo. Offering inspiration, encouragement, information and anecdotes, Wanderlust aims to help women travel safely, comfortably — and fun-ly! Including ideas for creating your own dream journey, and providing resources and advice from other solo women travelers, Wanderlust offers suggestions for how women can travel alone without feeling lonely.
