Traveling solo as a Muslim girl with hijab can be a little scary and daunting these days. When the word “Islamophobia” is getting more fame for the last couple of years, I can totally relate to the fear all female travelers with hijab face when they’re abroad.
It can be very uncomfortable to have someone staring at you from head to toe when you’re just eating your lunch at the local park. But we all Muslim women with hijab are just like every other traveler in the world. We have the same right to explore every corner of the world and all those fears shouldn’t stop us from traveling.
