15 Tips On Travelling Solo [Single Travel] VIDEO


Travelling solo can be one of the most exciting, liberating and eye-opening experiences, no matter your age. It offers ample opportunity for self-reflection and growth and boundless freedom. It can also be daunting, especially if you’ve never travelled solo before. With that in mind, Lonely Planet reached out to our online community on Thorn Tree, Twitter and Facebook to compile a list of top solo travel tips from seasoned wanderers and wayfarers who have navigated their own paths across the world. 


1. Safety first - One of the top concerns for people planning a solo trip

Why Travel Alone? - Single Travel: Tips for Going Solo

Solo travel can be the ultimate in self-indulgence; you can rest when you want and pour it on when you’re feeling ambitious. Another benefit is that your mistakes are your own, and your triumphs all the more exciting. There’s no worrying that your insistence on trekking all the way across town to a museum that was closed ruined your partner’s day; it’s your own day to salvage or chalk up to a learning experience.
Also, you can do exactly what you want to do—all the time. Always wanted to try surfing? Sign up for a class and go for it; there’s no one sitting on the beach bored while you have the time of your life. Have no desire to see Niagara Falls? Just drive right by.
