Iceland, Canada (Banff area is gorgeous). I could go to Italy solo and never get bored.

Hawaii

Japan and Singapore are probably my two fave international destinations for solo female travel. Never once felt unsafe during my trips. I would however avoid these two destinations for summer travel, it is humid and hot during the summer.

I am a field marketer. I travel and cover 12 states. HQ is across the US on the east coast. My manager put a surprise calendar invite twice now to go to home office without consulting dates to see if we were available. I stood up and asked to be included on available dates and said I will attend virtually but asking me to be away for 4 additional full days away from my family without asking me is not OK. I already travel a lot and this boundary is super important to me. Am I right or wrong?

Need some advice. My fiancé and I are planning on getting married in July 2022. We had a discussion the other night about where we would live after getting married - she lives in Kansas City currently (originally from abroad), I’m from NYC, born & raised. The problem is I told her I’ll live in my apartment for a while after getting married (~2-3 months), while searching for a new location for both of us to live. She got pissed & twisted my words saying that I’d rather live in my NYC (continued)
