Welcome to Travel Solo Girl

Hi, there! My name is Cate Dean, and I am an author, a travel addict, and a rabid Anglophile.

I've been traveling solo since 1997, from Britain and Ireland, to down under, exploring both New Zealand and Australia. I've also traveled across the US, discovering how different we are, and how similar.

I've learned so much during my solo adventures, and made more mistakes than I care to admit. ;)

Now you can get all the benefits of my experience, and skip the mistakes.

My goal with Travel Solo Girl is to help you plan your solo adventure - whether it's taking your first cross-country road trip, flying to another country, or a long weekend in a nearby city.

Everyone's travel goals are different, but I believe we share a similar reason for striking out on our own: to find our way back to our authentic self.

I'm a different person when I travel - and the more I travel, the more I bring that person back with me, into my everyday life.

It's a scary, exhilarating, life-changing way to live. And it's one I'd love to share with you.

Ready to get started? Check out the links below, and have fun planning your solo adventure!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I'd love to hear from you. :)
