Is it safe for a woman to travel through Europe by herself?
I am a 21 year old college student that really wants to go to Ireland. My family will tell me no because I will be by myself. I would find someone to go with me, but my friends cannot afford it, and I really don't want to put off my plans just because of my friends. I have done some research about women traveling by themselves, and it seems to be a pretty common thing. The only problem is presenting it to my family in a way that will make them alright with the situation.
