More women are seeing the world solo these days than ever before - and by far the majority happily and without incident. But in some countries (and you'll very much want to research which ones before you depart) crime is sadly an issue, and especially for females. Fortunately, in addition to common-sense precautions, investing in a handful of travel safety products for both your belongings and your person can help you to explore the world with security and peace of mind. In addition, I would highly recommend taking a quick course - there are some that will take just two weekend days of your time - in the basics of self defense. And of course, these products (and a self-defense class, for that matter) are just as recommendable for men, even though they tend to be less vulnerable than women.
