I was talking with a woman friend recently who travels a lot as part of her job. She gave me this tip, which I should have thought of: if you are a woman traveling alone with a group of men and you are concerned about either 1 of the men or about your reputation, get a room in a different hotel.
Now before the flames start, I’m not saying that this precaution should be needed, in fact, it is offensive that she felt it was needed. But… this blog is about the world as it is, not as it should be; and in the world as it is, there are times when this situation might arise. So take a tip from another woman: stay somewhere else.
