Episode 32: "Oh Crap" Moments When Traveling
Shit happens to everyone. Whether at home or traveling the world, nothing will ever go perfectly (if it does you are a lucky one). However, it's less about what happens and more about how you react to it that can make or break your overall experience.   In today's episode, I share the "oh crap" moments I have experienced while traveling. Hear about my experience with crazy cab drivers, losing my passport, and ripping my pants mid-excursion, 2 hours from my hotel (yes - that happened). From hilarious moments to some scary ones - I have gone through them all but, I NEVER let them ruin my time. You shouldn't either.  Check out the episode about my crazy flight experience.   Love the Solo Travel Woman podcast? Give us a rating and leave a review.

Episode 20: Going from Tourist to Traveler: Becoming Culturally Immersive
Oftentimes when people travel they focus only on seeing the top attractions or landmarks and they never really take time to dive into the culture of a location. This is the definition of a tourist. However, traveling in this way means that you are missing out on the true reason for traveling and that is to immerse yourself in other cultures. By becoming a true traveler you can learn, be inspired, and open your mind, eyes, and heart to everything and everyone else in the world. Today, we are joined by cultural immersion coach and founder of The Wander Word, Jessica Lee. Jessica will share with us not only her journey into solo travel but how you can go from being a tourist to a traveler and become more culturally immersive. =About Jess Lee= Jess Lee is a native of Massachusetts, USA, and has been a traveler for over fifteen years. In 2020, Jess founded The Wander Word to be able to focus on her true travel passion to help others transform themselves from tourists to travelers, shifting the focus from prominent piazzas to understanding the cultural and historical context in order to better understand the destination and its people. Through one-on-one cultural immersion coaching, travel planning, and language courses, Jess prepares her clients to travel like they live there and to interact with locals in a positive way. Follow Jess on Instagram @TheWanderWord and check her site out at www.thewanderword.com. =About Sara Ann Straw = Sara Ann Straw, CMP is an NYC-based travel design and destination event expert with over 12 years of experience in travel and events.

Episode 13: How A Solo Trip To Peru Changed My Life
For many years the idea of going on a solo trip to Peru and Machu Picchu was in my heart and on my mind. Finally, in September 2016 I booked a solo trip to Peru and Machu Picchu. I officially was going to spend 10 days in Peru including a 4-day trek to Machu Picchu with Contiki. My solo trip would be in September of 2017. I had a full year to prepare. The trail runs, stair steppers, and dieting became a way of life. After all, if I was going to push myself to what I thought would just be my physical limit – I was going to be prepared. However, little did I know, my preparation would be derailed and my life would completely fall apart. Love the Solo Travel Woman podcast? Give us a rating and leave a 5-star review.

Episode 12: The Creation of Solo Travel Woman
Growing up, my father always told me to never wait for anyone when it came to following my dreams. We didn’t travel much as a family when I was younger so, as I became an adult it was always something I dreamed of doing. However, I never had anyone to go with, and funding such trips proved to be quite difficult. When I started my career in corporate events, I was thrilled to learn of all the opportunities it would give me to travel. What started off as just exploring other cities and states within the US eventually grew to me managing destination events in other countries. Finally, I had a reason to get my passport and travel. As much as this was amazing and I felt so blessed, I was missing out on the experience of traveling for fun and immersing myself in other cultures.
