Travelling is one of the great pleasures in life. Seeing new places, experiencing new cultures, and getting out of your own day to day. Travelling with friends and family is a lot of fun, but what if no one is available to go with you? Many women are hesitant to travel alone, but it can be an amazing experience if you go with the right mindset.
Be Open to the Idea
Being open to the idea of travelling solo is the first hurdle to jump. Many people view doing anything alone as lonely, but it is quite the opposite. Travelling alone allows you to be completely in charge of your vacation. You can make all the decisions, set your own timeline and only worry about what you want to see and do.
Think About Safety
Travelling alone as a woman can be intimidating from a safety standpoint. Make sure to take your safety into consideration in every situation. Also, keep someone at home informed of all your plans and destinations so that someone has tabs on your itinerary.
Enjoy Meeting New People
Travelling with a group often means that you are just focused on the company you have with you. When you are a solo traveler, it forces you to chat with people that you might have otherwise walked right by. Place yourself in situations that are conducive to meeting new friends. Take a tour, sit at a bar, join a class or anything that lends itself to meeting with new people. You might be surprised at the connections you make when you are open to making new friends.
Do Things YOU Want to Do
Plan to see and do all the things YOU want. The best part of travelling solo is that you control the itinerary and you do not have to take anyone else’s plans into account. Take advantage of this flexibility and make your trip all about you and your interests.
Travelling alone can be one of the most empowering and fulfilling activities of your life and something everyone should do at least once. Take advantage of the opportunity to spend time learning about the world around you and about yourself.
