Traveling alone isn’t that bad as you think. Actually it is a very nice travel and it has its advantages.
At first, traveling alone means that you can choose on your own – the resorts, the time of the journey and anything else. You will not have to make your plans according to others and you will follow your own whims.
Traveling alone doesn’t mean you will actually be alone. In case you are heading for a relaxing vacation at some exotic resort, be sure that you make many new friends.
The most important thing is to socialize. Don’t miss the opportunity to make new contacts no matter what you are doing. Many singles enjoy the solo vacations just because of the new contacts.
Start with the plane and make a new friendship, without annoying the person next to you. Check out the guide books, for they are providing information about the locations, where lots of people gather.
Usually the biggest resorts offer many possibilities for new friendships because there are full with all kind of tourists.
Of course you should be extremely careful because you might meet some bad people. Stay away from suspicious looking people and make sure your friendship is reliable.
Vacations are a special period, when everyone around you will be friendly. People are open to new contacts and you can find companions everywhere. The bar and the restaurant, as well as the beach and the party club are the right places to meet new people.
Hostels aren’t preferable in case you are traveling alone because you will have to share one room with people you don’t know. In case you are choosing to spend the holidays alone, just book famous resorts and hotels. They provide better security than hostels or suspicious guest houses.
You can also meet up with like-minded travelers. Check online for websites that are offering solo vacations and contact persons that are heading the same direction as you are.
Of course there are many disadvantages for those that travel alone. Women are vulnerable, so they should be extremely careful, especially if they travel to places with not so good reputation. Avoid the countries, which don’t have a U.S. embassy and moreover, make sure you are protected by the hotel or the resort you are choosing.
Don’t go for vacation in risky countries and avoid too close relations with unknown people.
