      Thanks, Shannon. You have some great thoughts on the subject as well ( – I am currently sporting my own muffler burn from a motorbike in the Philippines. I suspect the female safety travel debate will be ongoing long after we both retire our backpacks. My only hope is that concerns for future female travellers get fewer and/or the travel ladies get tougher :) Safe travels to you, too.
