Update: Because I traveled alone I was highlighting the benefits of traveling alone in this video. However, I’ve done lots of traveling in the past with friends / family and If you haven’t done much traveling, I’d definitely recommend travel with friends / family / a group or organization etc. first then. Traveling is a very new experience. I was just saying there is lots of growth that can happen if you travel alone as you fully rely on yourself. However, you will have TONS of growth traveling with some sort of companions too. Traveling with companions or an organization is very fun and not as overwhelming as traveling solo. Most likely safer too.
Also, if traveling alone, be safe! Use common sense! Really research where you will be! You should be fine, but you never know! Especially for solo female travelers, be really careful and don’t trust strangers!
This travel alone adventure for me has been one of the highlights of my life so far! There were a couple small bumps and a tiny bit of loneliness or feelings of being overwhelmed / out of my comfort zone on an occasion (part of the growth experience), but overall the trip went quite smoothly! I really had a blast, was an adventure, and learned a lot about my self and the world 🙂 Highly highly recommend traveling!!
BTW, I traveled alone for the first time at age 23. And it seemed like a great age to do that. I had done lots of previous traveling with mainly my family before though.
You should probably be 20+ before traveling alone and you also need to have a mature personality and a large amount of common sense. There are real dangers in the world, and young solo travelers may be targeted. So please be safe.
My 27 year old friend was traveling a couple months ago got mugged. Another friend who is 21 traveled last year and got his phone stolen. So be careful out there! Criminals target tourists! That said, I don’t want to scare you! If you’re smart and have common sense, traveling in most countries (do your research on safety) is quite safe and traveling is one of the best experiences you can possibly have!
Another thing that surprised me is how many other solo travelers there are here that I’m meeting. More people than I thought enjoy traveling alone. It’s an awesome experience that I really think everyone should do at least once in their life.
I used the “Hostel World” app on my phone to find / book the hostels. So far I’ve stayed in amazing places. I highly recommend that app because it has ratings and reviews for each hostel so you can get a feel for them beforehand and find the top notch ones. For the best ones, sometimes it’s best to book a little early. Hostels can really vary. They can go from being kind of dirty and have weird people.. to being very nice and incredibly welcoming and social. So do a little research!
