Alone but never lonely
I love this article from Hostelworld which outlines how undateable you become when you travel solo.
As someone who has always travelled alone, enduring food poisoning in Ho Chi Minh City and getting lost in Croatia, travelling alone is scary. Especially when it all goes wrong. You don’t speak the language. You don’t have a phrase book. You are exhausted from battling the everyday to see some of the most beautiful sights in the world. You have no one to rely on except yourself. And sometimes that’s the scariest part. But when you get invited to a party in a Madrid hostel even though you have rudimentary Spanish, or join a gathering on the rooftop of a ryokin in Tokyo, you realise there are worse things in the world than being alone.
Now that 2017 is in full swing and summer plans have been ironed out, it’s time to see where in the world I can go in autumn. Suggestions welcome. Tips and advise always a plus.
We travel, some of us forever, to seek other places, other lives, other souls. Anais Nin
