I’m just home from an amazing four days in Split, Croatia. It was a wonderful few days spent relaxing at the beach during the day, and drinking in the old town at night. Being in another country got me thinking about how I definitely need to travel more and exploring the world.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had the privilege of visiting many countries. I’ve been to France, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, America, Turkey, Croatia, the Netherlands and Hungary. All of which are stunning countries with so much history and culture. But I want to visit more. I want to make even more memories and experience more new things.
Something I would really love to do is some solo travelling. Even if it’s only a weekend in Barcelona, I would love to do something by myself. A girl I know is just back from a three week trip around Europe and it literally looked like the most amazing trip. She visited so many places and met so many people and made so many memories.
So I’ve made a decision. Next summer I am going to be doing some travelling around Europe. Hopefully I’ll be able to do a month, but if I happen to have found a full time job by then I would even settle for a week or two. I’m going to need to do a lot of saving, but it’s definitely something I really want to do.
The biggest fear for me about travelling alone is definitely the worry that I won’t be able to make any friends and that I’ll end up being lonely. But I do know that deep down that is a silly fear and that once I get out there and into hostels I will get meeting lots of new people.
There’s a few options of places I might want to go. I love the idea of travelling around mainland Europe, and maybe going to the likes of Venice, Prague and Rome. But then again I really loved Croatia and would love to do island hopping. But I can decide what I want to do closer to the time.
Have you ever solo travelled? Where did you go?
