Traveling is indeed, a wonderful teacher and the best entertainer. It makes me an improved person and enhances my horizon of thinking. It enables me to handle unforeseen challenges, makes me flexible, adaptive and follows the flow. It makes me a dreamer and gives me the vigor to take the road less traveled.
Traveling is living, loving, learning and changing. It’s my life. I breath when I move. It makes me feel alive and rejuvenated. I truly feel my existence when I am on a journey. Traveling is my only dream and I can do anything to live this dream each second, every day, throughout my life.
“The more you wander, the more you wonder” unknown
Well said, I could not agree more on this.

By traveling alone, you can celebrate your independence and flexibility. It is your opportunity to decide for your own. There will be no conflicts, nor complications. Make this experience something to remember for a lifetime.”
Some people are afraid to travel, especially first-timers; however, this is an opportunity in life that everybody should try even once in their lifetime. You may feel hesitant and afraid at the start, but with the proper planning and preparation, you will realize that there is no reason not to continue. Below are some survival guides that may help you on your first solo travel.
Feel good about yourself.
Your attitude has a major impact on everything that you do. Before leaving, invite a positive energy. Think that the best will come and happen. Smile at strangers, be positive, build a new friendship, meditate, pray, go around, explore and seize each moment.
Learn to make friends.
This is an opportunity to be independent and make self-reflections; however, you should also learn to connect with other people if you really do not want to be alone during your entire trip. It could be with the locals, your roommate or other travelers. There is nothing wrong being with strangers; however, you should know your limitations and how to protect yourself.
Refrain from over spending.
Since you are alone, you need to stick to your budget. If you run out of money, there is no one that you can get help with.
Stay safe and alert.
Safety and security will always be the most necessary. Know safety precautions, especially if you are a woman. Be safe when taking a cab or bus, when you go to bars or whenever you go to public spots. Refrain from going to dark and unguarded places. Do not give personal information to strangers.
By traveling alone, you can celebrate your independence and flexibility. It is your opportunity to decide for your own. There will be no conflicts, nor complications. Make this experience something to remember for a lifetime.

Voyaging on your own is without a doubt a radiant ordeal. It offers you amazing chances to meet individuals, comprehend diverse societies, a bit of “personal time”. Nonetheless, to appreciate the delights of voyaging on your own as a woman, you should take measures to secure yourself and your things.
Here are a few tips:
- Don’t indiscriminately trust outsiders even though she is a woman.
- Try not to acknowledge drinks from outsiders or other inn visitors.
- As a solo traveler, it is imperative that you stay in contact with your family, relatives and close companions, so they are in know you are protected.
- Leave a copy of your personal details with your close individuals (family). Send them messages all through your travel telling them where you are presently and where you will be.
- It is better to have a ‘cell phone power pack’ in case your cell battery runs out in the event of any crisis.
- Be that as it may, don’t utilize the phone while strolling or driving, as you ought to depend on and be attentive to your environment.

We, as women, often contemplate before we go on a voyage on our own whether the place is safe to visit before going there. Ladakh is one such safe place for a woman who wants to voyage on her own. Ladakh is a dream destination for someone who loves traveling. It has remarkable geographical features.
Delightful Gompas, framed by fluttering prayer flags, friendly locals and the mesmerizing Pangong Tso Lake. Some of the most well-known spots to visit in Ladakh are Shanti Stupa, Leh Palace, and Nubra Valley.
In the event that Ladakh intrigues you, then, here is the way you can chalk out your travel trip-transportation, accommodation, nourishment, and water.
Transportation – You arrive at Delhi. At that point, you have numerous buses that will take you to Manali. Pick a bus that will reach Manali early morning. While in Manali you can freshen up and have a reasonably priced meal. You can buy snacks and water bottle for the onward journey. From Manali, you can take a bus to Leh. There is a stopover at Keylong. At Keylong, you can have Momo for dinner. For commuting in Ladakh, the only option you have is to hire a shared taxi/van. You will get more information about booking at New Bus Stand in Leh. People of Ladakh are hospitable and will be glad to help you out.
Accommodation– Homestays have started in villages in some of the trekking areas, generating income for the villagers and also reducing the strain on the ecosystem caused by camping. Trekkers on trekking routes in Hemis National Park can use homestays as they trek from village to village. Trekkers could meet local people and experience Ladakhi culture and lifestyle. Three meals a day, bedding and safe drinking water are provided.
Local people basically tend to their own particular personal concerns and don’t trouble travelers.Undoubtedly, it is a prevalent visitor destination for women voyaging alone. Given the high altitude, travel light and practice general caution as you would at any other destination.
Do share your comments and feedbacks about traveling solo. 🙂
Great post! I travelled to Europe semi-solo I left South Africa alone but went to a cousin and friends in the UK then went to Barcelona with a friend from New York but went to Paris alone. My trip took my to my South African friends living in The Netherlands and we all went to Milan but I left them there and I went off to Rome on my own. They were short stays so not so bad. It can be daunting traveling alone for many days. I guess it takes a lot to go alone. Do you travel in your own?
Yes, I do and it does become daunting traveling alone. On one hand, it allows you to celebrate your independence and flexibility but on the other hand, you have a responsibility towards yourself and the environment.
Yeah 🙂 The great thing we travel all the same. Enjoy, always!
