Solo Travel is for anyone. That’s the first thing I learned from the new travel book by Janice Waugh, the inspiration behind the new series, The Traveler’s Handbooks. Her contribution to the series, The Solo Traveler’s Handbook instantly breaks down the reasons why solo travel is right for anyone. Introverts, extroverts, singles, couples… anyone at any age can travel solo.
Have you always dreamed of traveling but have been afraid to take the step because you don’t have a travel companion or you’re not sure if you can handle it out there on your own? Never fear, Janice is here!
Janice spent years traveling in the past with her family and husband. As the circumstances of her life changed, she embraced solo traveler and has moved forward becoming one of the most influential solo travelers on the Internet.
Janice shares her experiences from the road of solo travel and gives you the tools to do it yourself. A travel book written by real a life traveler with real life experience, the book is an inspiration for those wanting to travel solo, but never thought it was possible.
With tips on where to go, when to go, how to budget and save money and even how to deal with culture shock, you’ll feel confident venturing out on your own for the first time after reading the Solo Traveler’s Handbook.
The Solo Traveler’s Handbook is one of five in a series of exciting new travel books. While most publishers produce destination guides or offer up travel narratives, the Traveler’s Handbooks are a new breed of travel books focusing on travel styles – the various ways in which travelers choose to experience the world.
The first five books in the series focus on a number of travel themes. Besides the Solo Traveler’s Handbook, they are, The Career Break Traveler’s Handbook by Jeff Jung; The Food Traveler’s Handbook by Jodi Ettenberg; The Luxury Traveler’s Handbook by Sarah & Terry Lee and The Volunteer Traveler’s Handbook by Shannon O’Donnell. Say’s Janice “The Traveler’s Handbooks deliver reliable information on the various ways people are choosing to see and experience the world.”
Have you made travel one of your resolutions for 2013? Have you always wanted to try your hand at voluntourism or take a break from your career? Have you always dreamed of traveling outside the world of package tours and all inclusive resorts? One of these Traveler’s Handbooks may be right for you.
The Traveler’s Handbook Series is available now in paperback ($16.99) and eBook ($9.99), through Amazon and iTunes. More titles will be added in 2013. Click on one of the books below to start planning the travel of your choice today!
A love of travel, personal loss and an empty nest all conspired for Janice to begin Solo Traveler in 2009. Resonating with thousands of readers, the blog quickly went from personal to public and the Solo Traveler Project began.
A popular speaker around the world including talks at The Smithsonian Institute. She started the amazing Solo Travel Society on Facebook, wrote the solo traveler’s manifesto called Glad You’re Not Here and most recently published, The Solo Traveler’s Handbook all connect those who love and those who long to go solo.
