Solo travel has seen a considerable rise in popularity since the pandemic, with many people wanting to meet like-minded versions of themselves through a holiday experience abroad. Many women who travel alone build deep and meaningful friendships with others on the road, sharing many of the same values. 

Solo travelers view this as an opportunity to meet new people and use their travels for self-reflection, personal growth, and soul searching. Of course, travel doesn't always have to be a path to self-discovery; it's also the perfect time to indulge in a bit of luxury and do things exactly your way. Here is how you can travel in luxury.
