You may or may not have heard about the recent tragedy involving an American woman who was traveling solo in Turkey. A couple of weeks ago, there was a press release stating that she had gone missing. She was in Turkey to pursue her photography hobby. Just this past Saturday, it was sadly discovered that she had passed away while traveling by herself.
Now with all of this being released to the public, the idea of women traveling solo is under fire. As to every argument, there are two sides.

Vacation is not an excuse to take a day off from your P90X workout, but you might find your hotel room doesn’t have enough room or a DVD player.
