A Kind of guest post By Max’s wife:
As an avid traveler and an independent woman, I have always thought that there’s no place on this earth that is so strange and foreboding that I might have to skip visiting it at one point or another.
From the lush French countryside, to the mysterious and historically-rich China, to the jungles of the Amazon, and even to the mountains of Machu Picchu, I have visited all of these places by myself, and though these were all unfamiliar territory to me, I have enjoyed every minute of my past trips. So far, the worst that has happened to me was getting an upset stomach from eating questionable-looking brie, getting lost in the alleyways of Beijing, and going into a mild panic attack when I had some difficulty breathing due to the high altitudes of the mountains.
Compared to the stories of other travelers, what I experienced were minor inconveniences, while other women had some experiences that were truly disturbing, and sometimes I wonder if traveling alone is such a good thing nowadays.
