  •  I travel for work (0+ / 0-)

    and I take the necessary precautions and cautions. I would not be travelling alone in a remote location in Turkey.  Has nothing to do with alone time but common sense would dictate that no one( male or female) needs to take a chance in a desolate location that might lead to violence. Just like I will not drive in a blinding  snow storm -nothing is worth that much risk.

    •  Istanbul is not a remote location n/t (3+ / 0-)

      I travel alone all the time, and go to "bad" neighborhoods at odd hours even sometimes, for work.  The key is to look like you know where you are going, I think.  I've noticed when a neighborhood is new to me, I get more attention.  When I blend in with the folks just trying to get home from work, no attention.
