    Hi Devika!
    I have travelled alone on many occasions. I don't enjoy it very much because I get bored if I am traveling alone but sometimes we have to do it.
    Carrying along books and some portable music is a must for me if I am alone besides the important travel papers, cash , credit cards etc.
    Due to technology we do remain connected nowadays even when travelling. I remember those days when such was not the case and my parents kept worried till I reached my destination.
    Thank you !

    Yes, I once travelled to the Bahamas on my own and it was wonderful but knowing that I can do it on my own again in spite of things which went wrong was one of the best things that came out of it.

    Devika, I have never traveled alone. I don't think it would be fun, but since I haven't experienced it, I really do not know for sure..

    Yes, I have traveled alone.  Actually, I prefer it because I get to do what I want to do and I don't have to compromise with someone else.  That probably sounds selfish but if I am going to spend money traveling I want to do what I want to do.  I also meet more people this way as it forces me to seek out others.  I agree with you some of the best times traveling have been by myself.

    Make sure you always know where you are (GPS, maps, phone with portable WiFi)
    Always know about the local transportation (what time it ends, how much you'll be paying, the local rules on tipping, etc.)
    Don't be shy to speak to new people, but be safe, too. Never go off somewhere with a stranger or let them know where you're staying (it's not just advice for children!)
    Research local restaurants to make sure you're not paying high tourist prices and that you can try the local delicacies.
    I also wrote a Hub on travelling long-haul if your flight is over 6 hours.
    Good luck, and have a great time!

      I traveled alone and wasn't sure about how it would be for me. My first time and enjoyed every moment of it. I didn't speak to stranger and stayed safe. Thank you.

    I am currently travelling on my own and have met many others, men and women as young as 18 doing so. Yes, there are dangers in the world but more often than not people are willing to help you. Coming from the UK, at first I was unsure whether to trust people as they were being, what seemed, overly generous and kind. However 99% of the time people are being genuine.

    Yes, take care, know your area, recognise signs and landmarks and keep your bag close at all times. But please, do not let stories about traveling scare you away.

    The most important bit of advise which has got me out of trouble a few times is knowing where you are without the use of your phone. My phone battery has the life span of an British summer, so it is vitally important to know your route home.
