With over 40 million women in North America living alone a new book entitled Time To Take Flight: The Savvy Woman's Guide to Safe Solo Travel could not be more timely or appropriate. Written by Canadian best selling author Jayne Seagrave the work tackles issues other guide books do not discuss, such as the menopause, dining alone, leaving a partner and family and getting over the guilt in doing so and finding clean washrooms.

Time to Take Flight: The Savvy Woman's Guide to Safe Solo Travel is a new book written for a growing demographic of tourist industry - women over the age of forty who want to travel solo. And with over 40 million women living alone in North America its arrival could not be more timely. Written by Canadian best selling author Jayne Seagrave in a highly entertaining yet practical way, the book is unapologetically geared to the mature women with wanderlust.
Says Seagrave: "I wanted to provide a book which would encourage women who have not travelled alone before to take the plunge and do so. Many women are now seeing their children travel and maybe others of their generation, but for a multitude of reasons do not think they could do this. My book aims to show them it is possible with a little bit of confidence and planning"
Like a worldly well informed best friend, Seagrave lays out the benefits of solo travel and refutes all the barriers women have leveled against it. One of the real attractions of her book is the no-nonsense practical, often humorous writing style. She frequently draws upon her own experiences to illustrate points while tackling issues travelling women have faced for years and which have been ignored by the travel writers. In this capacity pages are dedicated to subjects such as: how to find clean washrooms; coping with travelling as the body ages, (she has a section entitled "Menstruation to Menopause'); packing practicalities; health and physical challenges and; dining alone. With a PhD in Criminology she also offers savvy advice over safety in regard to hotels, transportation and on the street as well as fear of crime.
Twenty-three North American and European cities are highlighted and she discusses the best locations to find safe accommodation, how to travel from airport to hotel and the most rewarding activities for a single dame to enjoy.
So if you are one of those 40 million women go pack a bag and Take Flight! This book has everything you need to build a strategy, create an itinerary and move forward with confidence.
