Recently, I spent two days in London solo. I was surprised how much anxiety this leg of my trip caused me. The thought of spending two entire days alone terrified me. How would I dine by myself? Who would I talk to? What if I got lost? I have no problem being the travel leader for my family or my daughter. However, the idea of being alone terrified me.
I learn that Lauren, a lovely young woman in my ballet class, had actually, voluntarily traveled and stayed in Milan all by herself for two whole week. I decided to interview her to learn about her favs, her fears and her lesson from Milan.
Living Vicariously Through Travel Stories
To begin our interview, Lauren, Samantha and I pull up a couple of bar stools in the Myriad, an industrial market hall with indoor food stalls in San Francisco. Samantha is a fellow ballerina and eager to hear Lauren’s travel tales.
