Solo Travel in India
Solo travel can be intimidating at times, especially if you are headed to a country such as India, where the culture is very different from that of the West. So it's good to know that people, even young women, are doing it safely.
For one such account, check the Website http://notwedordead.com for the write-up of recommendations from a young British woman in a bikini, Katy Colins. The piece is pretty short on specifics, other than that she is a backpacker and visited Agra (for the Taj Mahal) and Goa on her own. I would have liked to know a lot more about where she stayed, how she got around and how much it cost.
I read some of her other posts on various destinations, and they too seemed to be quite lacking in the specifics I would have expected from someone who claims to be a trained journalist. Still, you can't argue with success and her blog seems to be doing a thriving business. If you need inspiration for a solo voyage to the sub-continent, you could do worse.
