Experiencing the world unfiltered; exploring the lanes and streets. Taking charge of your days and truly discovering yourself. Travelling alone is one of the most liberating experiences you will ever have.
Irrespective of where you are or the way you do it, it adds a new perspective towards your life's purpose.
So, to help you plan easier and enhance your experience, here are three tips that will make you take that leap of faith:
* Choosing your destination: Budget and time are key in determining your destinations. Remember to be open-minded. Haven’t heard a place? Can’t even pronounce a place? Have no idea where a place is? But you’ve located really cheap flights to that place…? Google the sh** out of it, check it’s safe and book that flight! Sometimes you’ll have the best adventures in places you can’t pronounce. Ljubljana, I’m talking to you.
* Pack Light: As a solo traveller, it is always better to pack light to avoid unnecessary baggage and liabilities.
Check the weather conditions of your destination and pack your clothes accordingly.
* Be Connected: Make sure your family or friends know your whereabouts. It doesn’t have to be a constant update of your location, but letting them know what you are up to every once in a while gives you a sense of security to enjoy your trip.
* Blend in: The best part of a solo travel is you get to meet and interact with new people. Put your phone away and make new connections. Observe the locals. Mix up with the people, and share stories.
You may end up forging friendships that last forever
