Yes, men travel solo.
One might think from all the articles about female solo travel, and from the studies that focus on female solo travel, that men don't travel solo at all. But they do!
True, on the road I meet more women traveling solo than men. But the men are out there.
Once, with the help of a male solo traveler, I published a post specifically for the guys but I got backlash – and rightly so. Tips about how to travel solo and solo safety apply equally to men and women. There's not a whole lot of difference in how we travel alone.
There are now over 110,000 (numbers are growing rapidly so chances are that this number is already out of date when you read this) people reading Solo Traveler every month and about 25% of them are men. There may not be as many men as women but over 25,000 is a pretty significant number. I read so much about women traveling solo that I'd like to honor the fact that men travel solo too.
