I was saddened to read that the body of Sarai Sierra has been found in Turkey. I have been following this story closely since a high school classmate of mine opened up a coffee shop in Istanbul.
It was very surprising when it was first discovered that she was missing that Sarai, a mother of two in her thirties, had traveled to Turkey alone to take some photos for her photography hobby.
This was her first time outside the country.
Gotta say that I have never been brave enough to travel alone. The thought has always spooked me a bit, worried about this or that happening, such as being stranded, when reality is I could probably navigate the situation.
Still, I continue to be fearful. My thoughts are with her family, especially her young children.
Have you ever gone on a trip alone?
