I need some advice on where I should go travelling next, I have recently returned from central America where I travelled with a male friend. I was thinking of Africa but unsure if it would be a safe place to go alone, I want a real challenge so I think Oz and New Zealand would be a little too easy. Other thought have been South East Aisa and South India. Any ideas?
If you're craving head-on chaos, over-load of the senses, a healthy dose of culture shock, amazing people, and the "I don't think we're in Kansas anymore Toto" feeling, then India would be a great challenge for you!
I'd also suggest India! It's a challenge travelling there, everything is so different from what we're used too.
I went two months to India alone (i'm a female) and I always felt safe. Other travellers told me that if I managed India I could go anywhere in the world. I find out they were right,
so go for it
The only thing with India is you need patience!
I hated the first week, to the point where I was considering leaving, I thought it was a nasty dump and it was driving me mad. I also found it a bit harder to meet people than other places I'd travelled, but after I got used to it and made more friends I had a brilliant time. Now I count it as probably the most amazing place I've been, and I can't wait to go back and see more of it!
