Traveling can be viewed as one of the ultimate indulgences in life. After all, being able to pack your bags and hit the road implies that you have the luxury of extra time on your hands as well as a bit of extra money.

This article I recently wrote for Tinder’s new relationship blog, Swipe Life, explores the rise of women who are traveling solo, and what is says about today’s single culture.
