I am a 30 year old single female, looking to travell on her own. Are there any females that have done this or, are thinking of doing this?

Hey, who you calling older?

I travelled for the first time on my own at 30 - it wasn't around the world, but it was a start. As I'm sure many, many people here will tell you: it's not about your age, it's about doing what you really want to do. People of all ages travel - those who stay home tend to be the ones whose fears are bigger than their sense of adventure.

Go for it! You'll find lots of support here.

And, really - 30 is older? No, no, no...

Thank's I guess Older was the wrong word... I certainly don't feel old. You are right... It is about what you want to do!!! Just wanted advise on people in that ages and gender catagory really wanna do this. Espicially as I have no real ties..

Posts like this one really make me feel old. 30 is not old at all, but you're right in your concern that you will probably be older than most travellers if you go with the RTW backpacking crowd. I'm 31 and I travel solo all the time, even when I'm in relationship. I have no problem mingling with younger backpackers, because I've been told by a very wise man that you're as young as the man you touch... KIDDING! You're as young as you feel. You should definitely go travel while you're still free of attachments and responsibilities. Enjoy, have a blast!!

Hello and Thanks.. I am just after any bits of advice that you can give. Where to go and where to avoid.

Where are you headed? My friend is off to Italy on October 5-19 and stopping in a bunch of cities, Rome, Florence, etc.. she is early 30's and going by herself as a single female-but I did it last year at 29 to New Zealand and Australia, so I assure her she'll be fine.

I'm 52 and if I were single, I would have no problem planning a solo RTW trip. I do have the luxury of traveling with my husband who is the best travel companion I could wish for - very easy-going!

I wish I could give you advice on where to go and what to see. Alas, our travels have been limited to the Caribbean (both divers) and our latest trip was to Panama. Though, we just spent the weekend meeting other N. American TP members in Montreal. It was a beautiful city and has much to offer any traveler!!! ;)
