GirlGoTravel: Female Solo Traveler Feature 19
Brittany spent one, long, meditative week in England, as you'll see in her photos. However, while in England, there was a terrorist attack on the Westminster Bridge. She was notified immediately because she signed up for STEP, one of the safety tips and travel resources I highly recommend, and was able to tell her fiancé and Mom that she was safe and in contact with the U.S. embassy. Despite this, she was still able to enjoy her trip. There is a lesson here. When you are informed, you feel prepared; when you are prepared, you feel safe and confident.
