Traveling alone is probably one of the most popular entry on a person’s bucket list. There is a certain thrill to imagining the possibility of conquering an entirely new place alone. People who have done it can attest that it is indeed a remarkable experience, something that distinguishes itself from any other travel experience with friends of loved ones.
Visiting a new place alone gives a person more opportunity to really explore and meet new people. This is even a better experience to try in an area that has a completely different culture and practices than the traveler’s hometown. This experience is more than just capturing beautiful photos, it is more about finding oneself in the stories of different people and places.
While this seems to be a really worth trying adventure not all people are confident enough to take on a solo travel. Here are practical guidelines on how to survive your first travel alone may it be within the country or abroad.
Research about the place that your are about to visit – even the most veteran travelers take time to research about their next destinations.

This helps reduce that normal jittery feeling brought about by the excitement and anxiety of visiting a new place alone. Make sure to bring a copy of your research with you. Internet may not always be readily accessible in some destinations.
They say once you survived your first travel alone, it’s hard not to want to do it again. The opportunity for reflection and escape is something that group travels may not necessarily offer. Go where your feet take you.
