Traveling alone can be exhilarating, allowing you to take in the experience fully, and best of all, you can do whatever you want, go wherever you want, whenever you want. The main concern when traveling alone is safety which means staying aware of your environment at all times is vital. For an optimal trip, keep the following tips in mind:
• Research solo traveler-friendly activities and accommodations. Many agencies offer solo traveler-oriented attractions and group tours which will make it easier to socialize.
• Connect with your network of friends and acquaintances to get more recent and pertinent tips on your destination. As a bonus, they may introduce you to hard-to-know services or even their local contacts.
• Make sure to travel safely by letting a person at home, as well as a contact in your next destination, know of your whereabouts at all times, including new travel acquaintances you make. Advise them of the next time you will contact them.
• Always carry identification and an emergency contact, as well as your insurance card.
• Always bring a party outfit, you never know where you may be invited!
