Planning a solo trip can be a terrifying yet exciting experience. There are so many unknowns and you probably have a million questions floating through your mind… where should I go, what do I want to see, what should I pack, why am I doing this, will I make any friends, is it safe, am I crazy?
If this resonates with you, DO NOT WORRY! As long as you maintain a healthy balance, these thoughts and feelings are natural.
