One of the best tips I have for any woman travelling alone--whether you stay on a higher floor in the hotel or not--take an old-fashioned, triangle shaped, rubber door stop!!
When you are in your room you can place it under your door and even if you have pulled the latch over the lock this will help keep intruders out! The harder they push on the door the more it grabs on to the pile of the carpet (no wood or screws to break out of a door jam).
Summer Vacation Travel is fun in the Northern summer... but don't neglect the Southern Hemisphere at this time of year. Yes, it's winter in South Africa, but that's their dry season. It's a good time to travel there.
Sometimes you need to watch rain patterns instead of just seasons to figure the best time to travel...
Whether you're taking a road trip close to home or traveling abroad...
Whether it's summer or winter in your part of the world... the way you pack can make it all more pleasurable.
We feel we are ambassadors when we travel, perhaps we can be ambassadors in cyberspace too and show you the joys of travel. We hope EVERYONE finds inspiration here. We believe that travel promotes understanding and understanding promotes peace.
