Some Tips to Find a Trustworthy Local Friend and Traveling Partner Through Couchsurfing When You’re a Woman Traveling Alone

Let’s face it, being a solo traveler when you have a vagina isn’t an easy job. There are some challenges we women face that men probably never have to experience, and when it comes to traveling alone… That’s a lot!
