Sometimes you want to be by yourself when it comes to traveling. This is absolutely fine, but please remember to be extra alert. Here are 5 tips to help you while traveling solo.
Trust Your Instincts
Always go with your gut. If something feels wrong, then by all means just don’t do it.
Do Your Research
Go to different review sites, forums, and even ask your friends about a particular area they’ve been that you intend to stay at during your trip.
Walk With Confidence
You don’t want to appear to be a tourist in a city you’re unfamiliar with because that easily makes you a target for a robbery or worse.
Stay in Open Spots
This is particularly the case when it comes to being somewhere at night. You want to be in a public place with tons of people to feel a bit safer.
Trust No One
It’s great to meet new people and share a meal, but make sure you don’t ask them to watch your stuff or tell them where you’re staying. Build some rapport with them first before trusting them.
