Just wondering how safe is it to travel alone in Spain and Portugal as a woman. I haven't heard any bad stories as such but am still a bit nervous about being a solo female travel in these countries. Any advice would be great.

As long as you don't behave stupid, (walking in dark hours alone through dodgy districts)...just always be on the safe side. (don't accept drinks from strangers, keep your drinks in sight etc.)

If you let common sense rule, you should be fine.

Just one more tip. Becareful with pickpockets in Barcelona as I heard quite few bad stories the past few months. Except that Spain is quite a safe country to travel as a woman.
