Travelling alone can be quite boring – if you are not used to it. No one to take pictures with or share the laughs and momentary experiences. It takes a lot of guts to dare to travel alone. Especially if you plan to have fun and a glorious remembrance of your trip.
Most people plan a solo travel because they need to get away from their environment and people, go far away from it so they can have time to think over an issue or come to terms with some life changing developments.
With an open mind and bravery, you can travel alone and have fun while at it, no matter your reason for doing so. All it takes is adequate planning.
First step is to make all necessary arrangements beforehand:
You cannot afford to be stranded or overly stressed. Give adequate room for preparations before your arrival in Milan. Buy your bus, train or flight tickets, book a room, take all necessary documents and pack your luggage before the day you are to travel.
Then, make friends along the way:
Do not build a wall around yourself, return a hello politely, smile and have a little chit chat with people you meet along the way.
You can also read a Book:
Read a novel, magazine or brochure. Reading a book outdoor can be a great way to pass time and enjoy yourself at the same time.
Remember to savour the Environment:
Go sightseeing, enjoy the weather, learn about the surroundings – be a little adventurous!
Attend Events in the Area:
Upon your arrival, you may be lucky to stumble on shows, festivals or events going on in the area, don’t hesitate – go for it if you have no other plans.
Remember there is no buddy to drag you back to your abode if you get drunk or get into a fight, so behave yourself, be adventurous and careful at the same time. Follow your instincts too, it saves lot!
It takes guts to plan a solo travel and extra guts to embark on one, so if you are planning or soon to embark on a solo travel, you are a brave one!
