I always have the passion of travel. I want to see the world, to meet new people, experience my life while i am still young. but i am so scared to travel alone. I have been telling myself that i can do it, but still, its so hard to take the first step.
any suggestion?

It's just one of those things that you have to do. When I booked my first trip alone, I was very scared. I almost backed out a couple of times. But I am SO glad I didn't, because it was an amazing trip and it has fueled even more adventures down the road.

One thing you might try that helped me carry through with it is to plan a trip and then tell everyone you know you are going to do. That way, you'll look like a big chicken if you back out. To save face you will end up going on the trip, just so you don't look like an idiot in front of your friends.

Just do it, you'll love it!

Come on, I was less than 22 when I firstly travel alone ovearseas, and I`ve been to 12 countries by now. It`s such a different experience to travel by oneself! Just have a try. BTW, I`m also a Chinese girl.

It's very impressive. really. I guess when i take the first step, everything will be fine after that.

God, I am feeling the same way. I want to back out too, but that person was right. You do feel like an idiot if you have told everyone that you are going. I m supposed to leave in 7 days.
