The World First Wander: women travelling solo, Paris and the best apps
Welcome to our weekly look at whatâs hot in the world of travel and travel writing from around the world. Itâs a mixed bag this week looking at safe travel, travel style, Paris and the world’s best travel apps.
We insure a lot of female and solo women travellers here at World First, which goes to show that there are many thousands of you who arenât afraid to travel alone or with female friends. Quite right! But, of course there will always be places where itâs unsafe or unwise to travel solo. Thankfully there are lots of female bloggers out there with lots of sound advice. So letâs crack on with a post from Â Christy Woodrow who, along with Scott Calafiore, runs Ordinary Traveller, a blog fuelled by extreme wanderlust. They have written a great post entitled 10 safe destinations for female travellers. It starts in Wales and includes a great list of places where itâs safe for women to travel.

Style next. Do you travel in style or go for the âwell travelled lookâ? It might be tough to look your dapper best when you travelÂ (although World First Customers are always a stylish lot) so itâs handy to get some style tips from time to time.

One of the worldâs most stylish cities in the world is Paris. There is something âje ne sais quoiâ about the whole city. Â If you have never been itâs a must.

Travel Apps are amazing and have definitely changed the way we travel. How did we ever manage before technology? Answers on a postcard!
