Hi Dreamer,

I love that nervous excited feeling you get before you take off! And it's so strong when you are a solo traveller :) It never leaves you.

You will have an amazing time. Being by yourself really drives you to meet new people and discover things about yourself that you never knew. Plus, you are never on your own when you are travelling, unless you choose to be. Sometimes it's nice to just be able to spend a day without hanging out with other people too! But most of the time, you will find it's so easy to have company, makes new friends, join up with other people at the hostels you stay at. It's the best thing you will ever do for yourself.

I remember feeling so anxious before I went on my first solo trip, thinking about how to talk to strangers, how I would put down time alone, etc. And from the very first day I set out on my own, I never once regretted it. I have made so many friends all around the world and had the most incredible experiences that I'm not sure I would have had if I had travelled with someone I already knew from home.

So, I wish you an amazing adventure!!
Bon Courage!
