• Traveling alone in Europe. While there are some single people who travel Europe with a friend, there are those who prefer to travel and meet new acquaintances alone. Traveling alone is a picture that scares a lot of people, especially women. Because of their fear, these people miss out on the chance of meeting the love of their life, and the chance to see Europe in all its glory. Women are afraid of traveling alone because of the possibility of getting attacked or raped while abroad. Sexual harassment happens practically everywhere, and if you do travel to Europe, you will get pinched, hooted at, propositioned or prodded. However even though these occurrences are common in Europe, your chance of getting raped while traveling alone is actually pretty slim. In fact, there are fewer reports of rape in Europe than in the United States. On the other hand, women who are seen walking alone are potential target for thieves. When you travel alone, make use of your common sense. Don’t go for empty alleys, and always keep an eye out for your bag. Europe may be a beautiful place, but some of their streets are crawling with thieves waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike at an oblivious tourist. If you travel alone, don’t overdress or underdress yourself. Refrain from wearing real jewelries, shorts or revealing outfits that can make you susceptible to petty thieves and sex offenders alike.
