Traveling On Your Own 🌏 Being A Female Solo Traveler

So about one month ago I stepped onto an airplane, having an 36 hours journey ahead of me, and that was the start of the first time I was traveling on my own. I have always been the kind of person that enjoyed traveling with a friend or my sister but this time I decided that I wanted to try out something new, well even something I was a bit afraid of doing. So I booked a trip to New Zealand and okay I have to admit that I wasn't completely on my own since I booked a tour where I was with a bunch of people and everything was basically organized for us but I'm taking baby steps here right? 😄 And since I didn't know any of these people beforehand it was definitely something a bit scary yet super exciting. However I've spent multiple hours on the plane on my own, killed a 10 hours layover at Perth Airport on my own, etc when I was basically never completely on my own because I met super nice people along my way and it's crazy how much more open you are when it's just you and you simply find yourself being open and happy to start chatting to anyone who is around you.
During the tour it was a great experience to get to know around 50 amazing yet so different people from all around the globe and it was really easy to connect to those people as we all had something in common - the love for traveling. We were all so keen to have the best time in New Zealand and in the end that's was we had indeed!
I'm so glad that I stepped out of my comfort zone and that I did something that challenged me in so many ways. In the end I must say that I'm a person that can probably enjoy a trip and also look forward to it a tiny bit more when I can share this excitement with someone but I wouldn't say that this trip was the last one me as a solo traveler.
There are definitely pros and cons to traveling on your own as well as traveling with a friend and I guess everyone is different and therefore prefers a certain type of traveling but I would recommend to anyone to just be open and try out things. It's great to share moments and memories with someone you love and that's something I missed a bit but doing this trip on my own probably taught me a lot more about myself and the only person you have to worry about is yourself - no compromises as you can do whatever YOU want to do. 😋

  1. Seems like you had a good time. I'm wondering where you found this trip though? With all the things organized and many different travel-lovers around.
