I love travelling! Who doesn’t right? Well, I realized how much I enjoyed travelling when I did this fun Europe trip earlier this year. After I was done with my studies in the UK, I decided to travel around to see a bit of beautiful Europe before my trip back to Canada. There is something so unique and rewarding about solo travelling that I can’t find the right words to describe my experience, really. If I can summarize the whole experience in one word, it will be this: AMAZING!
Things to keep in mind before embarking on a journey of your own:
- Plan ahead – Do your research about the culture, custom, currency, weather and which neighbourhoods to avoid.
- PACK LESS, LESS and LESS!
- Socialize as much as you can – It will not get lonely trust me. If you are keeping an open mind and interacting with other travellors, you will meet many interesting people.
- Try staying with the locals – You will not only get a better sense of their culture and language, but might also get a tour of the city if you are lucky. And more importantly, it is less costly to live with locals.
Here are the few shots from my Europe trip. Tell me about your experiences as a solo travellor, how was the experience like? Do you believe that travelling is good for our overall well-being?
