Solo travel, the thing we all want to do but having the confidence is the thing many of us don’t have.
I remember getting quite anxious and nervous about travelling on my own I even almost pulled out of a trip once I was so afraid but every glad I didn’t.
Being scared or worried about a solo trip is completely normally and okay to feel this way, but you are in luck because here are a few things that I use to confidence to do some solo travelling.
Getting use to your own company
Being happy on your own is one of the most important things when travelling solo and while you do meet people travelling you still spend time on your own.
Being okay with the fact that you aren’t always with people, that you will be going on adventures on your own is important as well as a great way to get to know yourself.
Days out on your own
Plan a trip to a city you have never been before and set off on your adventure.
Not only does it help with planning a trip and solving any problems on the way it also gets you to use to be in an unknown location exploring alone
Small things that give you comfort
For some, it’s going on a walk, reading, yoga, meditation and many more
When feeling alone and homesick knowing what can give you comfort, get you back up for an adventure is super helpful and help avoid you going home early from an amazing trip.
Too much media
Watching the media too much can scare you out of travel, a lot of the time only the bad is shown which unfortunately can put a lot of people off travel so remember some things should be taken with a pinch of salt
Go out for food on your own
Eating on your own is something which is happening more than you think, so getting used to it can be a massive help.
Start small by going to a café for a drink then a meal build up till you go out to a restaurant on your own (remember don’t worry about what other people think to focus on you)
