That’s the question posed by Marie-France Roy, a self-professed middle-years Adventure Diva who has visited 65 countries while travelling solo since 1992.

Marie uses her blog “Big Travel Nut” to give the 40+ solo traveller “the means and inspiration to travel safely on your own, stray off the beaten path, and have unusual adventures, all without breaking the bank! ” Is she a natural ally, or what?
