Anna Hart is a favourite travel writer of mine. I took the train to sunny Margate last week to meet up with Anna to discuss her new travel memoir 'Departures' and to talk about solo travel and what it means to her.
Kath Swinbourne is a Australian photographer based in Wollongong, New South Wales. So far she has undertaken solo drives in her 4WD through The Flinders Ranges and The Simpson Desert. Enjoying the solitude and spectacular scenery of her homeland, she travels with her swag, camera and good coffee. She is currently planning her next (10,000km) solo trip.

Whether you're about to embark on a year long round the world trip, or just a long weekend on your own, solo travel can be daunting. I've picked some of my favourite spots (some of which were on my first ever solo backpacking trip). I hope you find it useful, and I hope it helps you decide on where to go! Happy travels! :-)
