Growing confidence for solo travel

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)


Let me know in the comments any of your tips for building confidence to solo travelling.


In the meantime enjoy navigating the globe

  1. I loved this! Before I traveled solo, I practiced eating and going to bars by myself. It’s weird to think that I didn’t do that previously, because now it’s one of my favorite things to do–sitting at a bar with a book (pre-covid). I really liked the tip about taking comfort in the little things. Those are things I miss the most when I am home.
