One mother, three cities, eight days: Why I Felt the Need to Travel Solo

Well I did it. I travelled alone for the first time in my life. Eight nights, three cities, and one young mother reminding herself she is something of a unicorn.  (And it is okay to be lost, as she re-traces her steps along the cobbles in Prague because Google Maps is failing her.)
