I remember thinking how excited I was and that I was not in the least bit anxious. A doorway to the unknown was about to open, and all I knew was that I was gonna have a great time!

Well... the first time I traveled alone, I made sure that my stuff are fine. That I packed what I would really need (money, phone, tickets, IDs, cards...) and then I read a lot about where to go and what to ride... which stops to take, etc. It's also not bad to ask around just as long as you ask people you know you could trust.

When you feel yourself getting anxious lift your head up and look people in the eye. It will make the world a different place.

on a first trip, think- anywhere there are people, there is something to do and places to eat. plan for WHAT YOU WANT TO SEE say in Paris. Eiffel tower of course. So determine the location, time of operation, best way to get there, and relax. Also find in books or online, the very BEST and food most different, etc of the area. As if in Laos, not Paris! That was simply an example. So plan the major things- places to see and transports to use; and you can always eat out of a grocery store!

When my girlfriend was nervous about Egypt we looked up the crime stats and compared them to a nearby city she frequents.

That calmed her right down.
