Music on the background is annoying and distracting from the message you're trying to convey.
Hi, I'm a new subscriber and I'm so excited about your channel!!! My first solo trip will be to Jamaica and also the Cayman Islands in September of this year and I'm nervous, but really elated at the same time!!!
Thanks, im afraid of flying and i will try your advice to listen to some good music to take my mind off of nerves . Great advice overall. Thumbs up
It's so true that everything is about YOU, I mean ME! LOL. What I think is fun and great may not be for another person. I do what I want, when I want!
i just should go do things i like by myself that i like to do and then fine myself and people of the same interest
If I'm going to Istanbul Turkey in a few months & have never traveled outside of the U.S before can you let me know how to get a passport? will i need a visa? Whats the currency exchange rate in Turkey? How do i say "Thank You", "Hello", "Wheres the airport", "How much is the bail"? Just teasing !! Please help. I'm going their just for a couple days to have some hair transplant surgery. I liked your video & your a sweet lady.
i won't watch you anymore because music is too loud
Thanks for the tips! I'm planning a solo trip next year to London. I need every tip I can get!
These are awesome travel tips for women traveling solo! Thank you for sharing. It's a shame that some women can be put off traveling solo due to hearing so many scare stories, but they'd be missing out on so much.
I'd like to add though that I strongly believe that we solo female travelers should also know ways to defend ourselves if we are ever being attacked. Not all of us have time to take self defense classes however, so I'd like to share some tips which I have learned.
I've been taking Krav Maga for women classes for self-defense and I've learned that the best self- defense targets on a mans body for women, and the best ways of striking them are as follows:
– the eyes (finger poke them)– the nose (palm heel strike upwards)– the throat (chopping like actions)– the testicles (knee / kick / punch / slap / grab-twist-pull and hold on to them tightly until he collapses and passes out within a matter of seconds)– the knees (sideways kick to dislocate)
I've been taught that even a trained, determined teenage girl could easily take down a man if she goes for these targets, especially if she goes fast and hard for the eyes or the testicles (or "high balls" and "low balls" as I've also heard them called.)
If he's removed his trousers and he is about to rape you, then his testicles will now be extremely vulnerable to a "grab, twist, pull and hold" counterattack, and you should keep squeezing and pulling them as hard as you can (you can even use both hands, and it's still just as effective even if you only manage to get hold of one testicle) until he passes out in under 8 seconds.
When a man has his testicles forcefully squeezed it causes him to curl over and quickly lose all of his strength before collapsing, and this holds true no matter how big and strong he is – which is great for us women to know about. This technique has actually saved many women throughout the world.
We can all stay safe if we know how and where to strike on an attackers body.
U look beautiful…
omg, $896?! no way girl!!! last month i went from Bos-Copenhagen for $360, air bnbed most of time, took $100 to berlin and also $40!!!! to london!! the deals are out there!!!

I really wanted to hear her experiences. The music had me tap out at 2:14. Please consider dropping the music while talking.
I'm planning to travel to Germany alone next year. I came into some money, and it's enough to start and I'll save up more from there. I took 2 years worth of German for language. I'm looking at cheapoair and Airbnb.
I did not think about exchange rate immediately, so thanks for the reminder.
Otherwise, I am so terrified. I intend to stay there for 14 days. I have to research the train systems so I don't get too lost, I intend to stay in one city and then train out every other day to see other cities. My brother might meet me in Germany if he is free. I've flown alone, but this will be a first for me. It'll be interesting and so many people are telling me I shouldn't go alone. But damn it all I'm going to do it…. I'll probably be internally screaming the entire flight from the US to Germany, but I'm gonna do it!
songs w/ lyrics during video was distracting
Thanks I was going to cancel my reservation to Bali untill I saw your video, and close people would say don't go unsafe, .
I had exactly the same story when I was in Thailand, the same feelings and same actions that helped me to overcome difficulties I've met. I like your video. Nice to find a like-minded person like you! 🙂
i always wanted to travel alone, but i get anxious just thinking about it. my issue is always getting from the airport to the hotel. i don't want to get into the wrong shuttle by accident and end up at the wrong hotel.
I plan to travel to PR alone for my birthday in march …. great tips I'm still nervous but I think it'll help me grow !
I am 13 years old and i am flyging to London alone.
omg!! Im watching you from the C building at FIT!!!!!! lol
I'm probably like the only male who answered so far, but even as a man you have to take provisions. . It's actually cheaper when you travel alone and if you meet somebody from another country and they invite to their country, it's a little easier to accommodate one person..
Great vid. I plan on traveling to Italy alone in Dec. Nice tips
Thank you for the vid and great tips!
Have you heard about #airbnbwhileblack? There's been a great deal of discrimination on Airbnb, and you probably experienced just that. Next time use Innclusive (a home sharing company fighting discrimination for people of color), so you don't have to deal with that mess. Check the site out http://www.innclusive.com
Good video but the music is way too much. I can barely focus on what you're saying with that music in the background.
This video is very helpful but my problem is ive been travelling with my mom my whole life and im about to travel to London by myself for the first time . I'm super scared and nervous so can you please give me a list of important steps or things that you did in the airport till you arrived. I'd really appreciate it
Great info but the music was too much, couldn't finish the vid. Sorry for the criticism but I just wanted to share my experience.
Thanks for this video I will be following you on YouTube I'm planning my dream vacation to London for like 2018 when I save the money
