Along with the other tips, do you have a hobby or interest that you could possibly find a venue for or activity in the city or cities in which you'll be traveling? I love to read and met up with other booklovers in Rome when I was there. We exchanged books in each other's languages. I simply asked for a few ideas of what was wanted; most were recent bestsellers and easy for me to obtain in second hand shops. I came away with a few books in italian that I've used to improve my literacy. I think they used the books as an excuse to meet monthly, but then again I think Italians generally use any excuse to socialize! We spent a nice evening learning about each other and our lives. They even engaged my shy boyfriend in conversation.

Try searching on the internet for your hobby in that country. I found mine through meetup.com. Meetup is great, just plug in your interest and the country and something may pop up. The meeting places are all in public spots and so I would think if you had any uncomfortable vibes you could leave without a problem.

I know this wasn't exactly geared toward your single solo traveling inquiry, but I thought it would be an idea to step outside the box and stretch yourself to meet people who live in that country. I was nervous at first, but having the common denominator(books) helped and I think they were also impressed that I took the time and effort to meet them. I also received some great insider tips on Rome.

I've traveled solo(and I'm female) before and it can be quite scary, but it is so well worth it. I've met other travelers on walking tours and that was a great tip from suze. I also think solo travelers are more approachable. I feel more people talked to me when I was alone than when I travel with my boyfriend.
