When travelling alone, the probability of your journey becoming boring is higher than when travelling with friends. You can plan your solo journey to not only make it enriching and exiting but also to reduce mishaps and have a lot of fan. When you are travelling alone, boredom seems to be the common misfortune that attacks people.
Below are the best 5 things to do when you travel alone to ensure that you make your journey one of a kind.
Carry What You Can Monitor
Nothing brings frustrations and disappointments than when your bags and other valuables are stolen. To reduce the risk of theft cases on your luggage, carry luggage that you can easily handle and monitor. It will even reduce the inconvenience on the road thereby making you to travel and move freely without being bothered by anything.
Since you are carrying little loads, make sure that you pack the fundamental requirements that you will require to make the journey smooth.
Carry Your Camera or Phone Camera
As you travelling, you face a lot of fascinating venues and structures. With your camera at hand, you can capture these venues and view them as you are on the go. Viewing photos of the places that you visited will, in future, take you emotionally back to the trip.
Form a gallery while you are travelling and make sure that you share your pictures on Instagram. So your friends can also follow your trip and ‘enjoy it with you’ virtually.
SHOP THINGS TO TAKE WITH YOU WHEN TRAVELLING:
Make Stops and Interact
A non-stop or continuous journey is always tiresome. It reaches a point where one feels like not continuing again. Make several stops, buy a drink at the nearby restaurant and carefully interact with people. This helps you to refresh and breathe fresh air as you prepare yourself for another milestone of the journey. Stopping that you enhance your enjoyment and your journey becomes more fun than when travelling with friends.
From my experience, It’s good to talk to local people to understand as well where you can buy a local SIM card, how much should the taxi cost etc. This will safe you a lot of money and keep you away from dodgy areas.

Eat What You Trust
Food poisoning is common among travellers and when it occurs, it robs away all your happiness making you to feel like you should be at home. Don’t allow this to happen, just make sure that you buy quality food that is clean and healthy. Drink bottled water and if possible, carry yours from home so that you reduce the risk of drinking dirty water.
Eat only what you know is good and safe to you, so that you stay well while travelling. In cases of poisoning, it’s always good to take some medicine from home. So you don’t need to waste your time trying to find a pharmacy and suitable medication.
Spend Within Your Budget Limits
Don’t let the things you see around you control your expenditure because you can run out of cash any time in a foreign land. Buy what you can afford so that you remain with money for your own upkeep. Always review your account and ensure that you have enough money to take you back home safely and comfortable without a need to begging people.
To conclude, the above 5 things to do when you travel alone are meant to make you enjoy your journey despite being alone. Try to stay away from dangerous areas, have some spare cash, always make sure somebody from home knows where you are, drink enough water and you will nee fine!
