Are you ready to travel solo or looking for inspiration and confidence to go? Welcome to Girl about the Globe, making solo travel easier for the conscious female traveller.
If you care about the world and are a solo traveller (or want to be), then you’ve come to right place. Girl about the Globe promotes conscious and responsible travel so you can travel the world with maximum adventure, minimum impact.
If you’re unsure if you can travel solo, we’ve got everything covered from inspiring stories from other solo travellers, to staying safe, and help and advice on the road.
What makes us different is that we tell you how it really is to travel alone, beyond the pretty Instagram pictures. We show the local issues in each country, recommend volunteering organisations and tours and accommodation which have been used by other solo travellers. And give you all the information you need to plan and book your own trip.
But we’re not just a website! Girl about the Globe is a community of solo female travellers (join our Facebook group), a group of solo female Ambassadors, a bookshelf of travel guides (more coming very soon), and a range of solo travel products to give you more confidence for your solo trip.
Our Mission and Aims
- To get as many women on the road as possible
- To show that solo travel is easier than you may think
- To promote conscious travel and reduce the impact on our planet
- To help local projects all over the world and support sustainability
- To give an unbiased view of what the world is really like, reduce prejudice in the world and show that deep down we are all the same.
Girl about the Globe partners with the following organisations; Visit.org, The Code.org, and Tourism Concern, to promote ethical tourism, protect children from sex tourism, and help sustainable projects across the world. As one of the Travel Aware partners with the UK Foreign Office we can provide the most current advice on staying safe abroad.
