Solo female travel beyond safety

In 1980 , after graduating from New England College, which, at the time, had a sister campus in Arundel, England, my mom traveled across Europe, Morocco, and Israel alone.

She’d chosen to pursue her studies abroad, and two years prior to her months-long solo excursion, she’d been questioned at the Muscat airport for traveling independently to visit a col...

Woman on a 20,000-mile trek

Karen Penny had better have packed a decent pair of boots and a reserve of blister-protection bandages, because she is on a four-year, 20,000-mile trek around the coastline of the UK and Ireland. The 53-year-old is traveling pretty light, with just a small tent and a 37-pound backpack containing the bare essentials. Penny, who walked from John o’ Groats in northern Scotland to Land’s End in southern England last year, believes she will be the first woman to complete the continuous coastline ...

Exploring Kazimierz and Kopiec in Kraków

My daughter and I arrived in Kraków on a Saturday, having booked a sleeper car on the overnight train from Vienna. After the delights of Austria, I was looking forward to the train ride to Kraków. The idea of an overnight trip on a train had enchanted me since I first saw Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas” as a child, and I was thrilled that we would have our own compartment. While the hum of the tracks lulled us to sleep, the engaging and disengaging of train cars at various times through the ni...
