Hi everyone, I'm 19, female and want to find out my purpose in life. I am thinking of travelling and exploring the big wide world. Problem is I'm very apprehensive about whether its a good idea to go alone and I have no idea where to start!! Any advise would be great. Thanks x

I'm in the exact same situation, difference is I'm a guy, not a girl.
I know women who have traveled alone, but i think the risks depend greatly on where you're going.
I would say it's exactly the right decision, so long as you keep your wits about you.
Where were you planning on going?

If I was nineteen I'd be gone. Just me. By myself. Gone.

edit: I'm now over fifty, so have to plan it.

Guess your right I don't want to look back on my life and regret it. I've no set plans on where to go I'm completely open minded right now, but theres a few places I'd love to go such as canada and australia though I don't have a time limit. Has anyone got any suggestions on a good place to start? And things I need to think about before I go such as visas etc.

You'd only find out if it were a right decision or not if you go for it! ;)
But know this: You are not alone.
