I landed upon the blog of a woman who normally travels with her kids and her "other half," who she says takes good care of her by packing and doing laundry for her. (Is he for rent?)
She hadn't traveled alone before, not even on a business trip. She feared having no one to talk to and no one to remind her of the essentials, like taking her meds.
Her blog post on solo travel is long so I'm going to pull out the pertinent bits, including that she
has also had "rip-roaring fights" on some of her travels with this treasure of a packer and
launderer, so remember that nothing is perfect and score one for solo travel versus angry partners.
So, she finally gets to her destination and realizes she not only has the whole room to herself, but can soak in the tub for as long as she likes without kids banging on the door. She can surf the net without anyone nagging. She can have a meal without having to cut up meat for a child or referee a fight.
