Since Turkey is located between the two countries of Asia and Europe, there is no shortage of great travel destinations. I spent almost a whole month frolicking around the country on my own and in all honesty even though it has been two years since I visited Turkey, some of the things I witnessed and experienced were so special that I still have clear vivid memories of my time there.
To further enlighten all the female travelers about the safety aspect, Turkey is a safe country for female solo travelers on a budget. Like most places a little common sense and listening to your gut can keep you safe. I entered the country by boat from Greece and traveled my way up and around to Istanbul. Turkey has a very unique landscape and history which set's it apart from the rest of the region. Today, Turkey may be the only country that contains every extreme of Eastern and Western culture.
