I am a 50-something solo traveller. That wasn't always the case. I came to it later in life after a very unexpected divorce. Finding myself left with a booking for 2 on a trip of a lifetime to Borneo, I decided, sod it, I wasn't going to lose the deposit, I would go alone. That first solo trip turned out to be one the most inspirational and fabulous adventures of my life and I've been travelling solo ever since. I started Solo In Style, as the voice of the over 50 independent solo female traveller, where I blog about my travels and share experiences which I hope will inspire women who, for whatever reason, may be looking to travel solo for the first time later in life. I also contribute content for other luxury and travel online publications.
