Solo Travel: One is Not the Lonliest Number

Tuscany cooking class

The time of year for romantic getaways, chocolates, and champagne was yet again upon us. While I won’t knock Valentine’s Day, anything celebrating love can’t be all bad, I do want to take a moment to acknowledge that some people are flying solo.
