Tips for solo travellers with some ways to save money!
When heading off on a new solo adventure, it’s always nice to do your research and get some second hand knowledge and tips from other travellers. Stories and experiences told by others can both inspire us. They can point us in the right direction to ensure we get the best out of our experience as possible. I read blog posts and articles with recommendations and tips before I set off; now I want to share some of the things I’ve picked up since my travels. I am going to share 5 with you now, and another 5 in a future post. Enjoy reading!
1- Use apps to help you meet like minded people and fellow travellers
Since solo travelling I have used some great apps for both meeting new people and to use as a platform to share tips. Backpackr (http://www.backpackr.org/) is a fab app where you can post ideas and questions for fellow travellers to help you with. You can reach out to people nearby, and find travel buddies. Although I have not met anyone from Backpackr yet, I have used it to chat to people who I now have on Facebook. It is fun and interesting to witness other people’s adventures and follow their journeys. I hope to use it in the future to find people to travel with who have the same plans as me! This is a fairly new app but it is continuing to grow. Once more people use it the better it will get.
