There are different levels of traveling alone. Start with level one: group tours or cruises. All you have to do is show up with a suitcase. Level two is destination trips, like Club Med, horse ranches, and spas. When you reach level three, you're ready to truly fly solo!

Travel with self-confidence, and you won't have a problem with unwanted attention. Eye contact is important. If the locals connect with your eyes, they know you're human. And hold their stares-that helps in places where men can be aggressive, like Morocco.

Frequent cute boutiques-the shopgirls always know the coolest bars and clubs (usually because they're dating someone who works there!).

Teresa's Top Solo Travel Destinations
1. Port Douglas, Australia
I love Australia! The people are so friendly, and they really know how to live life. In Port Douglas, I'll sign up for a snorkeling trip or horseback-riding adventure.

2. The Mayan Riviera, Mexico
For first-time soloists, try Club Med's adult-only village in Cancun. It's all-inclusive, and there's always a really cute guy who picks you up at the airport.

3. Bio Bio Expeditions
Bio Bio organizes rafting and yoga trips to far-flung places like Peru and Nepal-but it makes them luxe. The people on the trips are an equal mix of males and females, and there aren't many couples.
