Many of us give thought to solo travelling always and in fact, we plan too but at the end, we fail to implement. Why? The only reason is the numerous number of questions and worries which keep knocking nails in our head. Like, What if I get mugged, what if I die starving, what if I don’t get a place to sleep, what if I start feeling lonely and there are much more.

Well! It’s time to scroll down and stick to some tips for your next solo trip. We assure you after reading it, your bags will be confidently packed to travel solo.

2.Trust Everyone and No one

A solo traveller pushes himself/herself out of his/her comfort zone to discover the whole world. Solo travelling comes with immense freedom as it will be you who’s going to have the full control over your activities. Like, when to eat, how much to drink, where to stay, whom to trust and whom to not which is fun and a great challenge itself.Sometimes, the conflict of such thoughts makes you believe anyone and leads you to the flow which is totally going to be a destructive experience for a solo traveller.

Important Things to Keep:-

  1. Keep 2-3 pictures of your passport in your cell phone. In case you misplace your passport and do print out the copies of your passport.
  2. Try keeping money in different sections of your bag. Like some between your clothes, some in your wallet and some in the front pocket.
  3. Do keep plastic bags to classify your stuff so that it becomes easier to find your things in short time.
  4. There’s no harm in packing a light or torch for safety purpose.
  5. Bring your own medicines and anti bacterial wipes.
