Hi! I'm Leyla Giray Alyanak and through Women on the Road I've been providing inspiration and advice on solo female travel since 2007. A former foreign correspondent and diplomat, I've had the privilege to visit more than 90 countries (and no, I'm not finished yet!).
But the world has changed and the virus is keeping many of us home.
For those who CAN travel without putting themselves or others at risk, you'll find plenty of inspiration in these pages (most of which were written pre-Covid).
For those who CANNOT travel... this is the perfect time for armchair escape and to plan for when we're on the road again.
Whichever it is, if you're over 50, curious and independent, a traveler at heart and in love with the world, you're in the right place. New to Women on the Road? Start here!
