    Test Yourself, Ladies: Are You Ready or Your First Solo Trip?

    Here is a checklist to answer privately and honestly. The Women’s Travel Group has many first timers!

    Are you ready for the physical part of travel: moving luggage/tolerating plane rides/getting through airport crowds?

    If you live in a rural setting expect street noise and prepare for it with earplugs. Claustrophobic? Get help before you travel. Bad back/legs? Make sure your luggage is light and that you can move it both sideways and dragging.

    Do you have special needs? Diet? Fears? Shyness?
