The Solo Female Backpacker guide to safely travelling the world is an essential eBook for any independent woman dreaming of travelling around the world on her own terms, with safety and personal security advice from the experts and personal accounts from women travellers who have been there and done it.
For many women who are dreaming of setting off on their own gap year the media often paints a picture that it is far too dangerous, far too risky to do so. Nothing can be further from the truth. The world in general is actually a very safe place to travel. Hundreds of thousands of women travel solo and independently across the world every single year without any problems or incidents and you should not let fear or unfounded media hysteria stop you from doing so.
That does not mean however that there isn’t some level of risk out there.
This book will give you expert advice on how to keep yourself safe, how to spot, avoid and deescalate any potential trouble, and give you the tools and knowledge you need to deal with things if they do go wrong.
With essential safety tips and advice from ex military, close quarter protection and self defence experts, as well as inspirational stories from women who have travelled independently around the world themselves to show you that it can be done, there is no reason why you can’t or shouldn’t set off on your own independent round the world adventures.
So if you are dreaming of setting off on your very own round the world adventure but you are a little nervous about travelling solo or as a woman, you need to buy this eBook! Full of practical safety advice for you to ensure your backpacking trip is as safe as possible and testimony from other female travellers, the Solo Female Backpacker guide to safely travelling the world will also give you the inspiration and the push you need to travel the world on your own terms.
A Little Word From Me.
This eBook is not here to scare you about the potential dangers when travelling. It will not amplify the negative and often overblown media paranoia about women travelling the world solo. It will give you the absolute truth, that travel is almost always overwhelmingly safe, but there are some risks that you should be aware of and take steps to avoid or minimise to acceptable levels.
Just like the more comprehensive Gap Year Safety guidebook, it is here to give you the knowledge and information you need to keep yourself safe on the road and inspire you to get out there and experience your very own gap year on your own terms.
Travelling the world is one of the single best, most empowering things you can ever do for yourself. So I really hope that this eBook gives all of you out there the confidence and the inspiration to get out there and go for it.
So thank you to everyone who buys and reads this eBook or any of the other books in the Bemused Backpacker series, I truly appreciate the support and I really hope you enjoy it.
Thanks for having me in this book! I really enjoyed reading it! Even for this female nomad there are still things to learn! Great book!
It was a pleasure and honour to feature you Milene! Hopefully women out there who are dreaming of travelling independently around the world will find the tips and advice useful, but will also be inspired by women like yourself who are living the dream!
And it would be my honour to inspire other travellers! I hope that women read your book and afterwards are motivated to take the plunge and find out for themselves whether it is safe or not to travel the world as a woman. I would love to hear their stories =)
Loved reading your story milene, the tips were great but its good to see other women actually out there doing it!
Loved the female backpacker profiles! There are some really inspirational women out there showing all women that it can be done!
Thanks, I agree! Hopefully a lot of women will be inspired by their stories. Travelling the world isn’t as hard, scary or dangerous as many people make out, and the safety tips and advice in the book should reduce any risk to acceptably manageable levels, so there is no excuse for any woman to be afraid of travelling the world independently!
You are a publishing machine!
Definitely an amazing book with a lot of useful tips. I bought it as a Christmas present for my daughter who is going on her first gap year next year but admit to taking a sneak peak myself. I love that you inspire and encourage as much as you do give practical tips too. Thank you.
Thanks so much Helen, I hope your daughter enjoys it as much! Happy Christmas!
Great idea for a book! Love it.
Thank you so much.
Congratulations on the book! This is amazing, so well done.
Well done on another book! You are KILLING it!
Thanks so much!
I already have your gap year safety book, is it worth getting this one too?
Well first of all Donna thank you so much for buying the first book! I really appreciate that! Honestly though if you already have the Gap Year safety book then no I wouldn’t buy this one as well. The safety advice and information is pretty much the same except the Gap Year book goes into a little more detail. The only thing you are missing is the female contributors to this book telling their stories and giving inspiration, so it probably isn’t worth buying a whole new book for.
You are an inspiration! Another book on the old CV for you. Well done!
Thanks Chelsea I appreciate that.
Loving your book series. Already have your backpacking guide, will definitely add this one to my list too.
Thanks Angela, I appreciate the support!
I loved this book! A nice easy read but full of really useful tips! I always put travel off because I had noone to go with and you have convinced me!
That’s amazing Jenny, thank you.
Just bought this on Amazon! Thanks for the sale!
Thank you so much! Enjoy!
Do you mind if I ask a question? I was going to buy this but then saw you had another book on general gap year safety, is there much difference? I can’t afford both and don’t want to double up.
I don’t mind at all Lisa no. There is a fair bit of difference yes in that the gap year safety book is far more comprehensive and goes into greater detail about personal protection, training your mind and using systems like my own REACTE system to keep yourself safe. With the exception of the personal accounts from other women to give you a female perspective on the actual experience of travel, most of the expert safety advice in this smaller book can be found in the larger parent text.
So if you are looking for more inspiration as well as some safety advice I would suggest this book, for more detailed safety advice and information I’d go for the larger gap year safety book. I hope that helps?
Just bought this! Looking forward to reading it xo
Thanks so much Natalie, I hope you enjoy it!
Just what I was looking for, thankyou! I am planning my gap year now and I have to admit I’m more than a little worried about how to stay safe.
Hi Louise, thanks so much! Please don’t worry, statistically the world is very safe and odds are you will travel the world safely and have an awesome time just like the majority of other travellers do. This book will just give you the tips and tools you need to reduce the small risk that is out there to very reasonable and manageable levels. Honestly I don’t want to scare anyone when I talk about travel safety, I want them to feel more confident and able to deal with anything, which is hopefully what you get out of this!
I have just bought this book and it is amazing! It really has calmed a lot of my nerves as well as given me some solid tips. Thank you so much.
Thank you Louise, I really appreciate the support.
Just bought this for my daughter for Christmas.
Thank you so much! Hope she finds it useful. 🙂
I got a copy of this for Christmas and love it! It has made me feel a lot more confident about my trip.
That is amazing to hear Hannah, thanks for leaving a comment to let me know and hope you have an awesome trip!
Can’t rate this highly enough! I got it for Christmas and it is just so encouraging. I’m planning a gap year at the moment for when I graduate in the summer and I’m going through your site as well now. You have a new fan.
Aw Jade Thanks so much! So glad you found it encouraging.
Just finished reading this and loved it! Good practical tips but far more than that it has changed my whole mindset on being nervous about travel. I’m still saving at the moment (and waiting to finish college) but I am planning my gap year through seAsia and Oz on my own and you have really given me a massive confidence boost. Thank you.
Thanks so much Lucy I’m really happy you enjoyed it, I genuinely appreciate that. Enjoy your gap year, you’ll have an awesome time I’m sure.
