  • Italicized text = instructions for you; regular text = talking points. Introduce yourself – share your travel experience (especially solo travel). Explain how you are affiliated with HI-USA, how long, and why. Ask questions of audience : Who has traveled solo before ? Overseas? Who has stayed in hostels ? Who is planning to travel alone for first time? Who would like to travel alone but is still unsure ? Today, I am going to discuss how traveling on your own, especially for women, can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life. I’ll also share some tips and strategies to help you on your way so you can travel safely and respectfully.
