Solo Woman Travel and Women's Travel Tours
Women's travel columnist Beth Whitman with friend in Kerala, India.

"My own view is that there is a pernicious mythology surrounding the lone female traveler, whether it be as a hitchhiker around Britain or a traveler in Southeast Asia. Many people instantly exaggerate the perils and dwell on a single woman’s vulnerability. Often this doom-ridden response is just an excuse for their own timidity of spirit. In fact, traveling around most of Asia is far safer, and more pleasant, than traveling on the Lexington Avenue line in New York City." —Susan Griffith from Traveling Solo as a Woman in Asia.

We were on a journey through Bhutan, the tiny Himalayan Kingdom nestled between Northeast India and Tibet. While small groups of women are not uncommon, our large group was an unusual sight for the locals.
