Single Travel: Tips for Going Solo
As much as I love traveling with friends and my husband, I also LOVE traveling alone. I can come and go as I please! And I almost always make new friends (I'll talk to just about anyone). One of my favorite solo trips was to Helsinki, Finland -- being able to sightsee and shop on my own schedule was a real pleasure, and it is a safe city to walk around in by yourself no matter the hour. I even went to the amusement park by myself, and had a great time. But it's not for everyone...
I checked off a bunch of these. I remember being so scared the first time I traveled alone, but after that first time I discovered it wasn't a big deal -- and was even pretty fun! I like being able to do what I want, when I want. SO sometimes gets bored in museums, but I can take as much time as I need when I'm alone.
