Have Clothes, Will Travel
Make no mistake about it: traveling the world is on nearly everyone’s bucket list, and many people love the thrill of doing it solo.
Needless to say, if you’re thinking about making an extended trip by yourself, it’s best to be as prepared as possible. Luckily, there are plenty of tips from expert solo travelers that will prove to be invaluable during your next foray into the unknown.
One of the single best tips for solo travelers is to save money – as much as you can – before you begin your trip. “It’s much easier saving beforehand than attempting to make money on the road,” said an expert traveler.
The reasoning? “Your plans will change, guaranteed,” said a traveler who admitted she didn’t give herself enough leeway to live in the moment during her last trip through Europe.
Savvy solo travelers said to take multiple copies of the same card with you! “It’s wise to bring a debit and credit card, or multiple of each. Hide them in different places for yourself,” they instructed.
It is so much easier to lug small bags around if you’re on the move.” Plus, your back and shoulders will thank you for traveling lightly!
Often, travel influencers leave out important financial information about their trip, like if their hotel stays were paid for by somebody else.
