Go Your Own Way: Women Travel the World Solo edited by Faith Conlon, Ingrid Emerick, and Christina Henry de Tessan

This book is a collection of short stories by women who travel alone to various locations: Argentina, Paris, Greece, Iceland, Mexico, Nigeria, Turkey, Arizona, and many more. Two of the stories are not about truly solo trips, so I'm not sure why there were included. This is my only criticism though. The stories are entertaining and well-written, especially Alice Carey's trip to Egypt her 50th year, Alison Culliford's journey to the remote Labrador, and Susan Richardson's fulfilled desire to walk in the footsteps of a tenth-century woman Viking named Gudrid.
