Our Inspiration for Life On the Go

First Time Travelling Alone?

You’ve made the decision to go it alone. That’s the biggest step… that and the small matter of arriving fresh off the plane clutching your new best friend: your backpack. From then on: freedom like you’ve never known before. Believe me, it’s going to be incredible.

Here’s some top tips to get the most out of travelling solo.

Travelling Alone

1. You’re not Alone, Really

 

The biggest fear of travelling on your own is loneliness. There will be crowds of other single travellers thinking the same thing, why not speak to them? Hostels are social spaces designedfor travellers to meet; make friends in the bar, at breakfast, in your dorm.

Spontaneity awaits; say yes to new opportunities and reap the benefits – off-the-beaten-track excursions and tours will show you a different side of your new surroundings. Take a chance on an unlikely friendship; the local you’re sat next to on the bus might be able to recommend the best meal in town.

Leave your Western stresses behind; you’ll soon find that people will be approaching you and starting up conversation.

2. Independence is the Way

 

It’s great to meet new people, but don’t sacrifice your independence to follow your friends. Finding a travel buddy to carry on your adventure with in a different direction can add a whole new twist on your journey.

However, there is a reason you came alone and when you decide it’s time to do your own thing again don’t worry about breaking off from the group.

A natural parting is often a blessing in disguise; new experiences and companions are always waiting round the bend.

3. Get to know yourself

 

This could be the only time you get to go it alone, and you may never return to this part of the world. While you’re thrust out of your comfort zone and into new environments keep a journal of your surroundings and the interesting people you meet, but most of all how these things made you feel.

The truly bizarre situations you find yourself in will go undocumented; there’s no time for Instagram when you’re having your tea - leaves read by the village witch or speeding through a city on the back of a motorbike.

Your journal will prove invaluable for igniting inspiration and transporting you back to your adventure of a lifetime.

Happy Travels!
