How To Never Be Lonely When Traveling Solo
Although very important for self-discovery and development, traveling solo can be a pretty bold move for many. Especially so for those with a more introverted personality. It can be pretty scary to set off on a long trip without knowing who you will meet and how you will make friends. But those who have traveled solo for enough time can tell you that traveling alone is, in fact, the best and easiest way to meet new people. Connections happen very naturally if you put yourself in the right environment with like-minded people, and you will quickly realize that you only have to be alone when you want to.
Join a tour. The absolute first thing you should do when visiting a new city sign up for a day tour. It’s the perfect way to get out there, see the city and meet other travelers. Once you feel more comfortable, you can arrange your own day plan with a new friend. Connect with the locals! The best way to experience a city is to connect with those that live there. People are commonly proud of their hometown and will be delighted to share the city secrets with you. Couch-surfing or staying in an Airbnb is also a great way to connect with the locals and make new connections.
