Smart Solo Travel Over 50

Australia and Italy

Hi, I’m Michela, the founder of Rocky Travel, a leading site for women over 50 who love to travel solo.

I’m a solo travel addict and outdoor enthusiast travelling alone in Europe and around Australia, for +30 years. With many solo trips around the world and many trials and errors, I have gained a lot of experience and learned how to make travel easier.

Travel planning can get overwhelming if you don’t have the right resources and information, but we can learn a lot from our trips, and we can apply it in everyday life. I’m keen to share my knowledge and tips to help you travel solo in a safe, smart and savvy way.

Planning a trip doesn’t have to become a frustrating chore. You need to have all the tools and resources, in the first place and implement the right process. Once you have that, you can apply it to any trip. Of course, depending on the destination, some places may require more research and more accurate planning. On the Rocky Travel Site, I share my advice and expertise on how to make the trip planning process more straightforward.

I have been planning and organising all my trips by myself for +30 years and many clients too. In 2014 I published Your Australia Itinerary Guide Book that has been helping hundreds of travellers plan their adventures around the new continent Down Under.

I offer trip planning services to travellers who are looking for expert advice and trusted assistance with their trip to Australia and Italy.  On top of that, I help women over 50 get clear about what they want and guide them through a journey to their future lives.

Australia is my favourite destination and the core focus destination of Rocky Travel. There is nothing that beats the Australian nature and the freedom of road tripping across its remote areas, and its most amazing landscapes is a precious gift. With nine solo trips and 24 months of solo adventures, over 14 years, I have criss crossed the big country from North to South from West to East. I know the country quite well.
On the Rocky Travel Guide Book, you will find over 300 pages of blogs and mini destination guides, along with my best tips on how to save money and time when travelling in Australia for the first-time traveller. From inspirational stories to advice, destination guides, planning and packing checklist and more.



Having started travelling solo in my early 20s, when I was a student, I have gone through all different stages and experiences of solo travel: from the cultural city breaks to road tripping and more overseas adventure travel, discovering Australia alone, with over 100 thousand km in 14 years.

On the Rocky Travel Site, you find hundreds of guides and blog for the adventurous solo traveller, who loves to venture out and do a little bit more of the regular trip. You can start on this post where I write about female solo travel tips
