Solo Travel Tales

Connecting: Solo Travel Network (CSTN) collects and publishes solo travel tales and trip reports. Travel tales are about the serendipitous events that occur spontaneously while on the road. These few stories, selected from our files, are presented here solely for their inspirational value, not to take the place of an up-to-date travel guidebook – every solo traveler's best and most constant companion.
