Lone Traveler!

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone! My names Jess and Im 21 from the UK, Im kinda obsessed with the idea of travelling but all of my friends are tied up with other commitments so Im thinking about going on my own.

Doing a lot of research this week and looking into flying to Sydney and doing the Real Gap Sydney Intro for 8 days then going off and doing my own thing for a couple of months and perhaps if Im feeling extra brave stopping off in New Zealand or Thailand before going back home. Looking to be travelling Aus from September - December.

Id really appreciate some advice because although Im quite outgoing Im a little nervous about going on my own. Also if anyone's going to be around Aus at that time (Sept - Dec) add me on facebook and maybe we can be travel buds.

Anyways I guess my main questions are: What was your experience like travelling alone? Was it safe? How easy was it to make friends in hostels or would it be mostly creeps and weirdos? and if you've ever taken a tour with Real Gap, would you recommend?
