Thinking of solo travel? It can be very daunting to start out on your own, it doesn’t matter if you are a female or male – solo travel can be scary when you first start out. When I stepped off the plane, 5000 miles away from the safety of my family and friends, it was the scariest moment of my entire life. I had no idea what the hell I was doing, I didn’t speak the language – I honestly wanted to turn around and go right back home: to my cat, my parents, my own bed. Forget about my dreams of solo travel. Forget about adventure. But then, as I was on a 3 day hike to Trolltunga in Norway, I remembered the reasons I chose solo travel in the first place.
