But, with whom to travel? And, would we agree on where to go and what to see once we reach our destination?
A recent article by Susan Spano for the AARP Magazine (gasp!) has some great advice on traveling alone -- and notes that solo travel is becoming very popular among women of a certain age.
She notes: "As I stopped wherever I wanted to eat spaghetti alle vongole and sunbathed on the rocks above the Ligurian Sea, my recent divorce faded into the background and I forgot my fears about no longer being one-half of a couple."

When I heard about the book Only Pack What You Can Carry: My Path to Inner Strength, Confidence, and True Self-Knowledge by Janice Holly Booth, I thought that it might be a 21st century version of one of my favorite books, Unsuitable for Ladies: An Anthology of Women Travellers.
And, Janice Holly Booth also writes an occasional blog, with an unique perspective.
