My first time traveling alone was going to visit my grandma down in Georgia. While that was kind of scary for me, I felt comfortable doing it because if something was to happen I still had my family available to help me. May be not as close but still in the same country type deal.
Where Do I Plan To Travel First?
The first place that came to mind was “somewhere in the carribbean” everybody likes to go where it’s warm when it’s the summer and winter time. But for myself personally, I chose a cold area.
I had seen pictures of the landscape and I thought Iceland was the most beautiful thing ever.
Plus it’s great for people who want to travel solo because it has such a low crime rate. Which that’s really what also sealed the deal.
It’s going to be an exciting experience for me. This is something that I most definitely won’t back down from. I’m just going to have to do a lot of research, pay attention to my surroundings, and learn everyday about it.
Conquering My Fears
I believe that taking this trip will help me to conquer my fears. I have always been the type of person who didn’t want to do things alone.
I even hate spending most of my time alone, but I realize now that I don’t need people to do things with me.
The company is enjoyable at times when I have somebody to do things with but at the same time I have to learn how to handle myself alone.
It’s scary and sometimes it makes you wonder if people actually care about you. At times I always felt like I forced myself on people just to get rid of my loneliness but when I did that I found myself regretting it and realizing I would’ve have rather stayed at home.
So instead of asking someone to come with me to Iceland. I’d rather take the trip on my own and if people want to join they can.
Opportunity To See A Whole Other World.
I’m excited to see a brand new world. Another culture than the American culture that I’m use to. It will create memories for me and I honestly hope to meet some great people as well!
Where are some places you have traveled solo and how was the experience? What tips could you give me and other people who are afraid to travel but want to take the challenge of overcoming their fears?
