Trying to find out more about yourself? Try traveling. One knows one's self not through meditation but through enriching experiences that would urge one to think better of his or her capabilities in different fields. Along the way, one could meet several people that would forge his or her identity during the journey through if they do these five correctly.

Lifehacker Contributor Stephanie Lee is correct to say, "There is no shame in being a tourist." Lee's post on meeting new people said that when socializing, solo travelers must never admit fault in being foreign in the country as there is none. This honesty is rewarded by enabling the traveler to ask questions about almost anything about the country, sparking great conversation and pride among the traveler's local crowd.

Of course, before this happens, Stephanie Lee adds that one must get over the fear of talking to another person. She said that even if travelers are rejected conversation, they have had nothing to lose to begin with. She said rudeness and rejection is "everyone anywhere" and this person is not so important to you as they would only remember you for a few hours.

However, Lee's tips are only for talking and interacting. It could look basic, but these are ways to fan the flames, to say it poetically. Like A Local writes that to meet other singles whether locals or travelers-- or basically reduce the risk of being ignored or rudely shooed away by the latter -- is to make friends with yourself and just smile. The travel guide writes smiling will make people want to communicate with you.

Like A Local adds that using modern dating applications such as "Tinder" or "Meetup" are all amazing ways to make friends. Aside from their suggestion, travel groups in social media residing in the area are great ways to meet single locals or travelers and engage in meaningful conversation up to ultimately a date.

Lastly, the best way to spark a decent conversation and possibly a great date is to display what interests solo travelers best. While traveling together with the group, place small non-verbal signs of one's interests such as keychains, books carried around, websites or jokes travelers share and more.
