Rachel Gordillo is sharing some of her best traveling tips with her followers.
The Married at First Sight star has never been shy about her love of adventure and visiting as many cities and countries in the world as she possibly can.
One issue in her marriage to Jose San Miguel was her desire to travel as often as she could. Jose was not as open to spending the money on major trips, and it became the cause of multiple arguments for them.
Rachel made it clear that while she does enjoy company on her trips, she has no problem traveling solo.
Her one-woman adventures are often documented on her Instagram page and have now inspired many of her fans to follow in her footsteps.
After noticing she was receiving tons of feedback about her trips, Rachel held a Q&A session to answer all the burning questions her followers had for her about navigating the solo traveler life.

When another fan asked whether she prefers hotels or Airbnbs, Rachel answered by saying, “I always prefer a hotel especially if alone Plus I enjoy the amenities and customer service.”
Some women were curious if Rachel felt scared when traveling by herself. One follower asked, “Do you ever get scared/anxious being a woman traveling alone?”
Rachel was honest with her answer, saying, “All. The. Time. But I don’t let it stop me. Stay aware and trust your gut.”
