Solo Travel to Bosnia and Istanbul - June 15-20

I'll be traveling to Bosnia and Istanbul the week of June 15-20. Is it safe for a solo female traveler and any recomendations on what to do?

If anyone is around and wants to meet up, let me know! :)

Since you have already booked your trip, you are better off posting in the local destination boards, in the case you might find someone in the destination to meet up with. This is not the forum to do this, especially with 11 days to go until your trip.

As for safety - wouldn't this be something to ask or consider BEFORE booking your trip? Information on safety can also be found in the local destination boards.

Don't know about Bosnia. You really should find out where you can go safely and where not.

Istanbul you need to read the forums. There is a certain conduct and attitude that you need to be aware of and again which areas to go or not. Be very careful of asking for meet up. Be sure that it is a regular here by the number of posts they have made. Anyone can make a profile and say they are from anywhere that takes their fancy. They could be just looking for a lone traveller carrying passport and money and you are advertising that fact.
