Is it safe to solo travel in Europe? 19 year old female

Jump to last reply

I've been looking into going to Europe this summer. Initially I was planning on going with my older sister who is 21 years old, when she returns from Africa where she's been working this past year, but she recently told me she doesn't think she would be able to afford a trip. This prompted me to look into solo travel, as I am free this entire summer and would like to seize the opportunity to travel.

My main concern is my safety. I have friends that I plan on meeting up with in several countries (France, Finland, Austria, Germany and Hungary) but am worried about how safe I would be while I'm by myself. I plan on staying in hostels rather than hotels, and traveling by train. I've never been out of the country or traveled alone, so I am nervous since it would be a new experience for me.

I would appreciate any advice from those who have traveled alone, female or male! If there is anything that I've left out that would help you give me a better response or better advice, please let me know!
