Want to explore the world, but don't want to wait for someone who can join you? There's no reason to wait! Some of the best adventures can be found while traveling alone. It's a great time for self-discovery, allowing you the freedom to explore in your own way. Think you want to go it alone? Here are a few tips for your journey.
DO YOUR RESEARCH
Whether scheduling an Air B&B or splurging on a 5 star Hotel, there is so much information on the internet. Take advantage of other's experiences and save time by reading their reviews and recommendations.
SHARE YOUR SCHEDULE
Email mom, dad, or bff your travel details ahead of time. The more details they have, the easier it will be to contact you in case something goes wrong.
MAKE FRIENDS ONLINE
It's never been easier to make friends while traveling. You could book a seat at Eat With, a network of chefs who host intimate dinners in their homes, in over 200+ cities around the world. Or check out travel blogs like The Travelettes or She's Wanderful to meet other women in the area before you arrive.
PUT DOWN YOUR PHONE
We can all relate to the feeling of awkwardness when it comes to starting a conversation with someone new. It's much easier to get buried into the safety blanket of our phones. But remember, you didn't travel thousands of miles across the planet to surf instagram. And it doesn't have to be so serious. You never know, a passing comment to a person in a coffee shop or in the plane seat next to you, could be the beginning of a whole new friendship. After all, the point of doing all this is adventure + connecting... so above all, HAVE FUN!
