Whether anyone is traveling by themselves or with another person, safety is one of the most important aspects to consider. One of the most common reasons why people don't travel is they are terrified for their safety. However, don't let fear for safety be the hindrance to letting you travel by yourself. There are a few tips and tricks to remember when traveling, especially when traveling solo.
One of them is to look for countries that are marked by other solo travelers as "safe". It is best to stay well researched about the destination. A report from Travel + Leisure has listed down a few countries that are best for solo travelers and these include New Zealand, Switzerland and much more. There have been researches and surveys done to rank these countries' peacefulness mark.
When packing for a trip, especially when traveling alone, always be wary of what you wear. A report from The Independent Traveler states that it is best to blend in with the culture or the season and not look like a lost tourist. Avoid wearing flashy clothes and bringing jewelry. Also, it would be best to not carry expensive things so that in case they get lost, no one would lose sleep over them.
It would also be great to carry identification in more than one place. In the event that your bag gets lost, everything you own will be taken along with it. Keeping money and an ID in your pocket can be a good way to stay safe and keep anyone credible when reporting losses to the police.
This leads to asking why and how things can get lost. Well, one thing to always remember is to level your alcohol intake. Partying with new friends is awesome, but to keeping the mind alert can save so many people from trouble like getting robbed, waking up in a strange place or even getting into fights.
The most important tip to remember when traveling alone is to not let everyone know you're traveling alone. Of course, there is much to be proud of for traveling solo but not every stranger needs to know. This is especially true when going out to drink and asking for directions.
