Traveling alone doesn’t have to mean hitting the road alone, as there are several ways to achieve this.
You can keep to yourself and explore somewhere at your own pace, or you can book a spot on a group tour and enjoy exploring with strangers. It may seem a little overwhelming, but group tours can bring like-minded people together.
If you’re social but don’t have anyone to hang out with, why not try a group tour? You might make some new travel friends along the way.
10. It’s cheap and easy to get your selfie game on point
If you’re worried about traveling alone because it’s harder to get those Instagram-worthy shots when you’re alone, fear not, because you can still get good quality photos. and: shoot them yourself.
When I’m out and about, I take a Joby GorillaPod, a phone clip, and a Bluetooth remote with me, so if I ever want to take a picture of myself, I have a cheap and easy setup. use and can take a few pictures, ensuring I get at least one that’s good for the ‘gram.
11. It’s okay if you don’t like it
You only need to spend 30 seconds on Instagram or TikTok to see someone praising solo travel, but the last point of this blog post is exactly why you should go for it. no like it
One of the reasons that many of my travels are solo is not that I choose to go alone, but that I go to many destinations that, to most people, are not desirable.
I don’t have any friends or family based in the UK willing to explore the Comoros or willing to cross over to Kyrgyzstan, so it’s down to me, me and me.
But even if there was interest from acquaintances for each of my trips, I would still want to try solo travel.
Although I love this type of travel, you may or may not. But if it is, you won’t really know until you try. If you end up not liking it, you still had a valuable experience and you’ll never look back and wonder if you missed out.
