Travelling is such a fantastic experience. You get to see new and exciting places and meet new and exciting people. There is so much to learn from just one short trip that you might think: “Why haven’t I spent my entire life travelling?”. The truth though, is that sometimes travelling alone can be a lot more intimidating when it is a reality instead of just an idea in your head. You mustn’t let this scare you though. Doing things by yourself are meant to be a bit more challenging – you don’t have ready support behind you, and you might not have people there to guide you. But let me tell you that once you get past the intimidating thought of it, you will have so much fun that you won’t want to go home. I’ve done a lot of travelling in my life, but only a small portion of it has been on my own. However, even though I have only had limited experience, I have learnt (from these trips and others around me) how to travel alone successfully and in a way that I can enjoy myself even when being responsible. If you’re looking for tips for your solo trip, then look no further (by that I mean you can just keep scrolling, you don’t need to find another site).
