In August I tested the waters.
“Would anyone like to collaborate on a free ebook of solo travel stories?,” I asked.
I raised this question on Solo Traveler, the Solo Travel Society on Facebook and on Twitter.
The response was fabulous.
In addition to all the people who showed their enthusiasm for reading the stories, there were ten wonderful individuals who actually contributed theirs. It has been a real pleasure reading them and compiling the stories and photos into this eBook.
Solo Travel Inspiration in Free ebook
I was inspired by all of these stories.
Yet, I confess, they caused me some frustration as well. The world is large and full of wonderful travel opportunities for adventure, learning and fun. Yes, like most of us, I'm limited by both time and money. This is why I write extensively on budget travel. Here are some recent posts that may be of help to you if you, like me, desire more travel than our bank account readily agrees to.
