Around the World Solo in 50 Days

One of my lifelong dreams has always been to take an Around the World trip and I am so excited to announce that  I made that dream come true. On January 31st, 2016 I embarked on a 50-day solo adventure ATW where I visited seven cities I had never been to before. I spent a week in each place digging deep into the location’s unique culture, food, sights, art, architecture and while discovering that special something about each place.

Six Cultures Over 22,000 Miles

I traveled a total of 22,000 miles where I visited six distinctly different cultures over a nearly two months period.  From Europe, Northern Africa, the Middle East, India, the Near East and the Far East I focused on what affordable luxury accommodations and things to do each location had to offer a solo traveler like myself.

What made this trip even more special for me, it was the inaugural trip which kicked off the launch  of my new website, Astrid Solo Travel Advisor. The focus of this valuable website is affordable luxury ideas, products and services for the solo traveler.

For the last 36 plus years I have traveled the US, and the World, extensively much of which has been solo. The site will share my insightful solo travel ideas, tips and experiences that stress luxury travel at a reasonable price.
