This was the best decision I ever made. On my 20th birthday I felt like my life wasn't going anywhere. Two days later, I booked my flight to Oslo. Then it started. I planned my trip over the mainland of Europe. When I got home, I started looking for my next adventure.

 

I highly recommend this for everyone.

I went to Iceland by myself! This was the first time I have fully travelled alone, not meeting up with anyone along the way. It was great! I went for five days, and enjoyed every single one of them. I got to do everything I wanted to do, when I wanted to do it. I am generally an introverted person who likes my alone time, so this was perfect for me. On the last day, I will admit I missed my boyfriend and my dog, and was very excited to go home to see them.

I left on the 4th of November to travel Australia and am having the time of my life. Travelling alone is loads of fun and it means that I am tied to doing anything. I can do whatever I like when I like and it gies me so much freedom :)

 The only challenge is that I get homesick sometimes and miss family and friends but Skype is a great help!

After scrimping and saving on a depressingly low wage, I finally managed to strike a big thick cross through this bucket list item as I packed a backpack (poorly) and took a trip down-under. A lifelong ambition which was finally achieved. 

It doesn't matter who you are, or where you're from - everybody has a country they dream of visiting. For me, that was Australia. I've never been 100% sure why, but I suspect it began with my daily helping of Neighbours every night after school. Indeed, I still have the 'Soul Patch' resting under my bottom lip, a homage to the now departed character Stuart. 

The one thing I feared more than solo traveling, was the country not living up to my expectations. Luckily for me, it was everything and more!

I began my tour in the rainforest region of Cairns before slowly coaching down through Surfers Paradise all the way to my final stop in Sydney. Some people did say that the money spent was excessive, but I was fortunate to meet some truly amazing people from around the world and that's just not something you can put a price on. I also had many memorable experiences (both good and bad) which will forever stay etched in memory. 

If you have the chance to travel, do it. I wish I'd gone and seen more of the world but now I own a flat. If you have no major ties, do it. Honestly, it's the best experience you'll ever have.

 The first time traveling alone to Quebec Canada and the very first trial of couchsurfing, I met somebody who inspires my life and changed my perception towards personal philosophy, a guy who has traveled to 80 countries, a guy who hasn't traveled with other before, a guy who told me the benefits of one-man travel. He hang out with me for the whole journey and he chatted with me till 5 in the morning, sharing his stories towards traveling, including his love stories and job experience. By handling everything on my own, taking care of my personal belongings as well as my suitcases, I turned to be more independent and really really enjoy being on my own. I started thinking of my life, past and future. I met a Canadian teacher and a Mexican student on board, we both shared our stories. They are also curious about the mystery of Chinese showing the numbers by hand gestures.

I travelled in Ireland on my own. It was only a week, but I liked it. I felt a little lonely in the beginning, but that wasn't because of me travelling alone, that was simply because I missed some people I saw just before I started my trip through Ireland. :)  I got to see loads of things! So much more than I would with people.  But I kind of missed someone to share the momories with

I'm afraid of flying, but that didn't stop me from going to Australia by myself. That's one of the best things that I've done in my life.

If there is one thing I would recommend for people with low self esteem or no confidence, traveling alone would be it!

The more it scares you, the more it will help!! Guaranteed!

 Over the years, I’ve been quite a champion at being independent: I've lived all by myself for over 5 years, I’ll go to parks by myself, I’ll go to book reading with people half my age or almost twice. I go running alone at 3 am on the streets. Et Cetra. But taking this leap felt much different. Traveling to a couple of countries, all by myself. To travel solo.

I had three very solid reasons to do a solo trip. One, I wanted to take the biggest plunge out of my comfort zone and challenge everything that I've known about the world and myself by now. Two, rediscover myself- how have I changed as an individual (on a time-lapse basis) in last decade. How will I react to awkward or interesting or intimidating situations and people when I won't have anyone to judge me, guide me or protect me. I wanted to become stronger, braver and more responsible. Three, to give myself the gift of time and space.

Here are my video postcards: https://www.tripoto.com/trip/one-girl-solo-tripping-across-europe-via-video-postcards-57b99951021d2​
