I'm a 21 year old male who's currently saving with plans to travel alone, yet I have no direction as to where I want to go. I've been a couple places in Europe and am flirting with the idea of InterRail, but just as much would like to explore Asia or the Americas. I've not really conversed much with people who've travelled alone, hence my turn to the internet.

Basically I'm looking for personal accounts of travel experiences; where you visited, highlights from those place both chilled and adventurous, routes you took, people you met, events, food, activities, dangers and pretty much anything worth mentioning. I'd also be interested in working whilst travelling in any type of job to maintain funds.

This is a very general post but I'm sure some of you will get back to me with some stories to get me thinking.
Safe for your time, Liam

I would definitely suggest perusing the blogs on Travellerspoint—certainly saves a lot of retyping!

Start with the community highlights (featured blogs helpfully organised by topic/destination) and then if you find a country that piques your interest, you can jump in to all entries in that country through here.

If you are just looking for inspiration at the moment you might also like to check out the photo galleries. If you have a specific question about a destination or travelling alone, please let us know—it is much easier to help with specific questions and there are a lot of solo travel fans in these forums

Good luck!
