Q: How was it like to travel as a solo female in the various โ€˜not-so-safeโ€™ locations you travelled? How do you protect yourself from various potential dangers? A: While some places in the world are relatively safer than others, it doesnโ€™t mean there is no risk travelling in โ€œsafe countriesโ€. Keep in mind that, wherever you go, being cautious is healthy, but having blind fear is not. Having said that, there are three places in this entire trip that I feel relatively โ€œnot-so-safeโ€. The first one is South Africa. The best way to travel along the beautiful scenic coast of Western Cape is by driving. However, for a person with poor sense of direction like myself means I would need a GPS. I can still remember vividly back when I was living in San Francisco, my GPS would occasionally route me into the Tenderloin area (this is before fancy headquarters like Twitter and Uber moved in) and ghettos in East Oakland, when I was all by myself. Another time I had to commute from San Francisco to Reno for work, on my return trip my GPS was down. I ended up taking six hours to reach San Francisco, which would otherwise be a three hoursโ€™ trip. When travelling in Africa, the last thing you want is to venture into a township (slum neighborhood), which has a reputation as a very dangerous place. Yes, there are tours to visit these townships but driving into them without permission is another story, one could get killed and it happened before. With these bad memories of GPS I decided to spend most of my budgets on hiring a local guide/driver when I was in South Africa. It turned out that the money was well spent. #krugernationalpark #safari #southafrica #Epicworldtour #travellikealocal #Roundtheworld #RTWithloulou #experiencewithloulou #experientialluxurytravel #sonya7rii #goprohero6 #mavricpro #beautifuldestinations #lonelyplanet #luxurytravel #luxuryworldtraveler #luxwt #klook #airbnb

Job completed for a lovely young couple today. Personally I think they made a great choice having their roofs restored. Looks fantastic and would have dramatically increased the value of property ๐Ÿ˜ Call 0455608636 or inbox the page if interested in a free quote ๐Ÿš๐Ÿ  #12YearPaintWarranty ๐Ÿš๐Ÿ  . . #Newcastle #CentralCoast #HunterVally #NSW #Roof #Roofing #SparyPainting #PressureCleaning #Restorations #Roofer #Roofers #likeforlike #RoofRestoration #likes #Dronestagram #followforfollower #Follow #Drone #Dji #Djimavicpro #MavricPro #Value #Increase #Property #Home #Resort #Coast #Investment

Q: Did you wonder around at night? A: As adventurous as I am, I actually didnโ€™t feel safe going out alone at night. I stayed away from any night activities with the fear that I may get into trouble or danger. The least thing I want is having to come home early, among a lot of worse things you can imagine. I would always tried to book my flight to arrive at day time. However, I remember there were three nights I was out. One night I arrived late at this Airbnb in Helsinki, it was around 11pm. I had to retrieve the key from a 7/11 nearby and try to locate the building on a dark side street while it was raining. It took me at least half an hour to find the building because the instruction was not clear and the street was really dark. After that experience I tried to stay in a hotel as much as possible. Yes, there is definitely a cost of being a woman traveling on her own. The other night I was out to see an opera In Vienna. I met a guy at the Opera house who was also by himself. He walked me back to my hotel after we grabbed a drink nearby and I actually felt a lot safer with his company. We stay as friends till today. (hi there, if you are reading about this post I wanna thank you for not being a serial killer ๐Ÿ˜‚). Sometimes you just have to trust in the fundamental goodness of people, especially if they are good looking (just kidding on the good looking part ๐Ÿ˜) One night when I was in Havana, I was really craving for Chinese food so I walked all the way from my hotel to โ€œChina Townโ€ for this Sichuan food. It was all very worth it as Havana was not as dangerous nor messy as I thought. People say hola to you all the time on the street but that was pretty much it. #hanselandgretel #operahouse #wienersaatsoper #vienna #austria #Epicworldtour #travellikealocal #Roundtheworld #RTWithloulou #experiencewithloulou #experientialluxurytravel #sonya7rii #goprohero6 #mavricpro #beautifuldestinations #lonelyplanet #luxurytravel #luxuryworldtraveler #luxwt #klook #airbnb
