About Us

The Solo Female Traveler Network is an online home and community for women to find connection, support, and inspiration. Created by and for solo female travelers, it offers women a place to learn important travel skills, find support in times of triumph and of trouble, and connect with a network of peers.

Our founder

The Solo Female Traveler Network started on a hostel couch in Mexico in 2016.

Our founder, Amanda, was sipping a cerveza around the corner when someone broke into her room and stole all her stuff. Everything … except her dirty clothes. Stranded in Mexico with no money, no contacts, and suspicious hostel staff, she vowed that no other solo female traveler should ever feel as vulnerable as she did in that moment. So, she created a global network for all women to have a place to turn for community, inspiration, and support.

what we believe

Everything we do is based on these core values.

Proactive

Actively seeking ways to be innovative and welcoming creativity and new ideas

The Meaning of our Symbol

This is our symbol for solo female travel. It comes from the ancient symbol of a triangle pointing down with a horizontal line through it meaning both Earth and woman. 

We turned the line into an arrow to represent our journey moving forward and added the compass to the top for our travels.
