This post is for people who still doubt to travel alone.
I personally lived, worked and studied in 5 different countries (not counting countries I visited) - learned 7 languages (I am not native English, excuse me for any typos).
Nevertheless, whenever I moved out in a new country by myself - I felt sad and scared. But my gut told me to go and "just do it". I remember me crying before taking the plane because I was afraid of the unknown. But, when my adventure ended in those countries - all I wanted to do was to stay there with wonderful people who became my lifelong friends.
- If someone tells me you can't I just turn around and say" watch me"-
There are always not so smart people who will tell you - Oh don't go there because of this, or that or this - knowing that they never went there.
Well, I decided to go anywhere I wanted in Asia, Europe or North America. I was purely touch by these wonderful landscapes and especially people who went out of their way to show me their amazing culture.
I went to S-E Asia - even thought I had some difficulties to accommodate at first - people I I randomly met while playing sport with them invited me to spend the week end at their family with the only goal of showing me around. I mean - isn't this priceless ??!
I could tell stories for every single countries I went by myself because when you go alone - well - you have no other choice than going out of your bubble.
The fun thing, is that even though I already visited a lot of countries - I always have this strange feeling of being scared a few days before. But when you go alone and challenge yourself (that's how I felt it) - you develop a weired feeling of huge accomplishment.
I always wanted to push people to go beyond their limits, explore the unknown and achieve the greatest. That's the reason why I started to create video tips about my travels and my life in the U.S. (you can look at my profile if you want to know more about it - or send me a private message for more info).
To conclude - when you travel so much - you feel like a stranger and when you come back you feel like a stranger in your own country and the only thing you will want is to leave again!
I hope my little story will encourage anyone (boy or girl) to JUST DO IT!
Hope this helps
