Janice is 53 years old, and has been travelling solo for more than a decade. She didn’t start out wanting to travel alone, it’s just that the adventures she wanted to take – canyoneering, dogsledding, learning the flying trapeze,
etc. – were not that appealing to any of her friends.

After the first solo trip, she became addicted to the freedom and exhilaration of hitting the road by herself. She knows that many people in my age bracket who have gone through divorce or are single-parent-empty-nesters are reluctant to travel alone, yet it is probably one of the most profound gestures they can make toward creating a life that really resonates for them.

She says that because while she was travelling all over the place, having hair-raising adventures and pretty much scaring herself half-to-death over and over again, she was also learning about who she was at her core. She came to know and understand the nature of courage, and how to develop it on her own terms.

"So many great life lessons offered themselves up to me, and I was able to receive them because I wasn’t distracted by or wrapped up in a travel partner".
