Group Treks, late night booze with mates, dance nights, rolling over, crazy talks. Isn’t traveling pretty much like that?


“Some journeys can only be traveled alone.”

Traveling alone gives you an opportunity to pamper yourself and make yourself feel loved. 

But, a little preparation ahead might help you to save time and energy and prepare you to get past any rough times. 

Here are some of the tips that you must consider while traveling solo to any part of the world.

Safety is of Utmost Importance

This is probably the primary concern of anyone traveling alone. You seem to be more vulnerable with no people around. 

But, you can merge yourself into a group without getting noticed easily by any kind of scam artist or criminals.

So, take note of the following things before the start of your journey. 

  • Have a fair idea of the time it takes from the airport to the hotel that you have booked along with the expenses. 
  • Book a place with 24/7 customer service so that you can initimate them if at all you will be arriving late.
  • If you don’t feel good, then don’t do the thing that bothers you.
  • Maks sure to be at public places only, especially during the nights.
  • Don’t wear anything flashy to attract people towards you. 
  • Leave a copy of your trip schedules to any friend or family and be in touch with them consistently via phone, video call, or email. 

Make Friends But Don’t Trust Everyone You Meet

It is a good thing to meet new people, share your cultures and experiences. But, not everyone is good. It’s okay that you hang out with these new friends. But, don’t let them know your vulnerabilities. 

Keep your guard up at all times. 

Eating Alone Is Not That Bad

I am sure nobody likes eating alone, especially while traveling. Most times, solo travelers feel misplaced while dining out. Here’s what you can do to fill in that place or chair probably when you are about taking your meals. 

  • You can opt for a cafe or outdoor dining will help to fill in space by including a book as your companion. 
  • You can either go for a counter seat or seat at the bar.
  • You can also choose for the booths that help you find the right kind of privacy.

If nothing works, you can always use room service and enjoy the meal while listening to your favorite music. 

When You Feel Completely Out of Place

The constant nagging in your head that you are alone, you have to take care of yourself, or that you need to keep your guard up can be extremely exhausting. 

Then, you can just be a bit relaxed, no need to follow a schedule. Take a day off, and pamper yourself. You can hang out with locals, or find something that excites you.
