Going Solo Tales

Going Solo Tales"If I can travel the globe solo for a year, anyone can," says veteran traveler Diane Redfern who founded Connecting: Solo Travel Network (CSTN) in 1990. These 15 illustrated essays follow a not-so-adventurous traveler's personal rite-of-passage from timid to intrepid. On the road with a "year's gear" stashed in one carry-on bag nicknamed "Pooch," a wide-eyed Redfern puts on rose-colored glasses and lets serendipity take the lead in a journey that gives her ample opportunity to face her middle-class, middle-age fears and foibles. She gets lost and found, worn and weary, down and out, almost loses her heart more than once and, all in all, returns home renewed, invigorated, and convinced that the world is a magical place and that she has had the most marvelous time of her life.
