8 Tips for Travelling Alone

Summer is here and there are a lot of beautiful spots you can visit with your family, friends or just my yourself. You know, this is one on my bucket list, to travel alone. I've never done that before and hopefully will happen this year. :) I have some tips for you guys, the things you should remember especially when travelling alone. 

Thinking about travelling alone especially for us girls means being independent, freedom, knowing ourselves more and self-exploration. But there are few things we should bear in mind before getting with this idea. 

1. Make sure to inform your parents or any family member that you are going to travel alone. It is important that you have someone at home know where your destination is for security reasons.  

2. Keep your Important Travel Documents. There are times when we are in a hurry that important documents are forgotten. Always check it first and then make a duplicate copy of it in case you will lost it.

3. Don't flaunt your solo status. Be conscious of your surroundings. There is no need to ever advertise that you are traveling alone. At check-in and when ordering room service, be discreet and do not mention you are flying solo.

4. Safety First. When riding on a cab or taxi, make sure to take note of the  vehicles license number, or you can message it to your family or friend just in case. If you feel that the place you are in is not safe to walk especially at night, you can always ride on a vehicle, just make sure to remember the important tip as mentioned above. 

5, Dress in modesty. Once you choose the place you're flying to, make sure to know the culture, kind of people and the way they dress.  Do your research and get a feel for what other solo female travelers have packed. 

6. Go for crossbody bags wioth zipper. You don't need to wear your signatured bags or bring a large one when strolling around. A simple crossbody bag will do. You can put important things like ID's, wallet, credit cards and your phones. Tip: Put an extra money inside your pocket or any under your garments in a hidden security wallet. 

8. Be friends with other travellers. The world of solo female travelers has become a huge thing today.  There exists a bond of mutual respect and confidence with each other.  Make friends with others when you see a solo female traveller. Maybe stick around together or go out on a quest together. Just make sure that you still need to be cautious to avoid being messed around.
