Most people do not grow up with extensive experiences traveling alone. When we are young, we go on family vacations, in school we go on class trips and when we are older, we go on trips with our friends or significant other. But what happens when our friends can’t go on a trip? Or don’t want to go to a certain destination? Or what if we don’t have a significant other to accompany us? For many people, that puts an end to ideas of going to a certain place. But it shouldn’t! If we waited for others our entire lives to do something we really want to, we would constantly allow others to shape our experiences.
Of course it’s scary. Being somewhere alone by yourself, potentially somewhere where there is a language barrier. But I have 5 tips to share with you that will hopefully allow you to make solo travel a part of your life.
