REVIEW BY: Michelle Arrazcaeta, GirlGoTravel

Ladies, I just downloaded Google Trips. WOW. It brought up all my upcoming flights through my gmail, suggested top spots in my destinations (with photos) and allowed me to save my trip.

Amazing app. Perfect for the solo travel woes (aka getting lost). HOWEVER, don't let technology take away spontaneity. There is so much power in getting disconnected and lost.

That Time My Visions Board Came to Life: My First Solo Trip

By Meron Medhanie, Newbie solo traveler

Meron went on her first solo trip last year. She came to me for some help with accommodations and overall advice, which I was all about (it was my first foray in "coaching"). She graciously wrote this to share learnings from her trip. Good nuggets in here!

She took the words right out of my mouth. A fine articulation of what it feels like to travel solo. Not scared, but FREE.

"And here’s what I remember the most: I felt entirely free in that moment. In that moment, I belonged to no country, and to no person other than myself. I was completely untethered. In that moment, in my mind: I became a true adventuress. I became the heroine of my own novel, living the life I was meant to live."

An interesting read on fear being a go-to trait of women and why it shouldn't be.

"We must chuck the insidious language of fear (Be careful! That’s too scary!) and instead use the same terms we offer boys, of bravery and resilience." - Caroline Paul
