Hannah Ireland grew up in both the UK and rural France. Her fascination with travel developed after watching Shirley Valentine (many times) during her formative years. She studied at Queen’s University Belfast and Exeter University and holds a Masters in French Literary Translation. Hannah now lives and works in London.

Hannah explains, “I wrote this book to encourage people to feel that they can have a successful solo holiday. From unattached individuals to single parents, retirees or people who simply have different interests to their partners, I want everyone to feel confident about going it alone.”

She continues: “For years, I have listened to others, especially single women, tell me how brave I am and that they wish they could do it too, but they wouldn’t know where to start. My book is intended as a manual to help them overcome their fears about holidaying by themselves.”
