Stephanie Lee grew up between Malaysia and the United States, but has spent most of her adult life in Australia or travelling the world. In this interview, she talks about her short- and long-term trips and gives tips from her experiences.

The Art of Solo Travel

Girls Guide Solo Travel - solo women travel overseas
Girls Guide Solo Travel - launching June 1, 2010
We talk through the four main sections of the Art of Solo Travel, covering the hows and whys of travel, especially solo women travel.

Stephanie talks about her own motivations and in doing that, sums up some of the heart of the book. If the message of Eat, Pray, Love hit home for you, then this is a practical guide on how to get out the door and travel. It’s especially aimed at long-term travel but has good application for people travelling short-term too.

If you’re looking for more resources, you can read about her experiences as a woman travelling in Cairo.

Your thoughts on "Art of Solo Travel podcast: Interview with author Stephanie Lee"

  • Hi Stephanie, I recently purchased The Art of Solo Travel and I love it. I have recommended it to a couple of friends, and although unlike me they aren't traveling alone, they have found it very useful. I especially love that you couch surfed, it's something I will be doing but before reading your guide I was hesitant about doing it on my own. Thank you so much for such a wonderful guide, and if you would like to know more about my adventures, I can be found at sleepingonbuses.tumblr.com

  • Hey Kim, thanks for your kind words, and glad it was useful for you. Couchsurfing is invaluable when you travel alone, and one thing you should always do when couchsurfing in a new city is join the local CS group to connect with other travellers in the same area...I went to loads of meetups and made great friends this way! :)
