Friday 08 March is International Women’s Day and to mark the date we’ll be celebrating female solo travel with 14 expert bloggers. A day of sharing helpful travel tips from quotes to blog posts, we hope the initiative will inspire many of you to see the world alone. We are also going to be asking our bloggers ten questions – see the list below.
