Always be careful if you are going to holiday as a solo traveler woman. This 7 things will make your solo travel will be safe and free, because you are the bravest.
1. Beware of Strangers
Being friendly is a must, but you should still be careful when talking with other people who just got to know. When you travel alone, you will find a lot of new people; at the stations, airport, train, bus, restaurant, and even at the tourist attractions.
Don’t be so open to the new people. If you need them to ask, ask necessary. If they ask you to talk about something, talk as need and avoid giving your personal information to the strangers.
2. Traveling At Daytime
As much as possible, you can arrive in your destination at noon. Arriving at night will make you have trouble to getting the venue or hotels, especially if the public transport in the city was not available until night time.
We suggest you to take a trip during the day. Estimate your journey will be finished before night time. It would be safer than you have to go out at night alone.
3. Minimize Your Luggage
Because you will traveling alone, don’t bring too much luggage. Minimize the clothes and other equipment that you bring, because too many luggages will complicate your journey. Avoid carrying too much cash and jewelry.
4. Keep An Eye On The People Around You
Generally, a woman will feel more secure if she near other woman. But, you also still need to be aware of people around you. If you are uncomfortable being next to someone or in an environment, you can quickly move to another place that make you feel more secure.
5. Conservative Dressing
Avoid using tanktop, tight or short clothes. In addition to upholding the norms of decency in the local area, it also can keep yourself from undesirable things. Dress yourself politely, with the best outfit that make yourself comfortable on your journey. It doesn’t reduce the natural beauty within you, for sure.
6. Show Your Confidence
Although you are traveling alone for the first time, be confident! Don’t show anyone that you are a new solo traveler. Reveal that you use to travel frequently and aware about the place. Show your confidence through your strong voice and calm face.
7. Don’t Borrow
Never accept anything from others, especailly those who just got to know. Beverages, food, medicine, and the other things, you’d better prepare by yourself. Unless these items you have received from an official institution.
Enjoy your solo traveling, Sahabat AVO!
