    I LOVE Italy and Austria. Our honeymoon was in the South Tyrol region – you chose such a good place to show people! I normally travel with my husband these days, but i would have LOVED this kind of tour when I was single. Good luck with all your adventures. I hope it will all go really well!!

    I have returned from my first solo trip after traveling in a group for 7 years. and I must say it sure is peaceful and overwhelming. I always felt I have some different connection with Italy.. the country is very much close to my heart

    What an exciting start to the year. I love Italy and Australia. I love solo travel but I can understand why some people are worried about giving a go, your trips seem ideal for them

    Traveling alone is incredible, but can also be exhausting. What an excellent way for women to travel in a way that is safe, communal, and takes care of a lot of the minutiae that can make solo travel stressful.

    I kind of like the idea of travelling solo but joining groups of like-minded people for tours in between. Of course, Italy is a great destination to experience with other people. Good luck with your tours!

    This is such a great idea! I have been traveling solo a couple of times, which I love. But for someone who has never traveled solo before or who wants to try something else – this is such a good opportunity!

    That’s amazing. Love the comparison between travel companions and solo. They both have their benefits. All the best with your travel tours. I hope you and everyone who joins enjoy Italy and Australia. πŸ™‚
