Lots of women travel alone. The places you mention don't sound scary to me. You walk around where you live by yourself, right? You know not to get into a car with a stranger and not wander a bad-looking, deserted area at night, right? You know not to drink until you can't control yourself and what happens to you, right? You're able to firmly tell a guy you're not interested and to leave you alone? Then you'll be fine Enjoy the freedom traveling alone provides and the knowledge that you can take care of yourself.
