    Hostels are amazing! The only travel I will do when I'm travelling Internationally.

    Great channel. I don’t post comments much, but I thoroughly enjoy your channel and how you share info. I’m an American expat in Doha, Qatar 🇶🇦 and travel as frequently as possible, so I can co-sign with the many things that you say. #respect ✊🏽

    Great ideas, great information! I like traveling solo, but it does get lonely sometimes. One fun way I have found to meet and interact with people is to offer to take their photo. See someone struggling to take a decent selfie? Offer to help out…put them in a nice pose…and snap their photo. They are so appreciative, and lots of time they will return the favor!

    i want to do a solo trip to Puerto Rico and stay at a hostel to meet new people, how can you convince family members to go without them judging you thinking its pointless traveling solo?

    Great video, i agree 100 percent. I just finished my second solo journey in Poland and it was everything i was hoping. Met so many amazing people, and now i am so comfortable traveling alone. Both times i traveled i stayed in a hostel, and i absolutely loved it. Just like you said…game night, movie night, pub crawl. endless activities. Also my biggest obstacle when i first traveled solo was language. I speak Spanish and English, so the first time i went to Prague i was happy that most people spoke English. That taught me a lesson though, so went i traveled to Poland i made sure i knew some basic polish and it made a world of difference meeting locals.

    Travelling solo doesn’t mean you have to travel alone. You meet people while you’re travelling. Thank you for the tips and will definitely try your suggestion as I’m going to travel alone next month.

    Re. #2, I couldn't agree more.
    It also helps if you're outgoing. Since I was a pre-schooler, I've walked up and started talking to people. Not mandatory, but it's another tool for your box.
    Camping. People in campgrounds are almost 100% open to meeting people, even inviting you over to their campfire, as happened to me back in '84 in Alaska. Guest houses would work the same way, as opposed to hotels. I had that experience in French Polynesia and Jamaica.
    I also think it's easier in rural areas rather than cities.
    Another thing, ignorant Americans, is to know something about the country you're in. It would be a serious faux pas to say, "Now let's see. I'm in Thailand; is this part of Australia?" It would be good to know things such as that they speak Thai, the capital is Bangkok, they're in SE Asia, and the #2 city is Chiang Mai. Learning how to say thank you and hello is also a good move.
    Last of all, a genuine smile goes a long way.

    I would love to have some love on the road, but you never know if a man is genuine and respectful. You may go to their house and get raped, beaten, become a skin suit, you name it! It's happened 😓

    Yaaas 👏🏼 I am most definitely going to travel solo! The only thing holding me back currently is money and age. I live out in the middle of nowhere (literally.. like, no cities within 50 miles in any direction 😂) so making money is a bit of a challenge, but I'm doing it 💪🏼. I turn 18 in about 10 months, and then I plan on setting off and exploring this beautiful home of ours!

    I'm so glad that I found this channel! After taking my first trip out of the US in early August with my extended family, I've found myself thinking a lot about traveling, particularly​ traveling by myself. However my mother, who's opinion I greatly respect, had essentially scared me away from the idea of traveling alone; now I feel a little more secure. I just need to conquer my fear of the unknown, lol 😅
    Thank you so much for this video!

    Good tips! Traveling solo has become unavoidable for me because most of my friends are just too busy to travel. I'm single with no kids and a location independent job so traveling solo has become the new normal.

    Amazingly amazing! Excellent video. I've traveled the world and we share the same cool tips/hacks as solo travelers. I remember sometimes back when I was working for a construction firm in London, they would pay for our hotel when traveling for work. I had to talk to the HR that I would rather get my per Diem rates because I wanted to stay in a hostel. That resonates so well with your experiences and I can see that I'm not the only one who avoids staying in a hotel where everybody is busy on their computers traveling for business.

    Couchsurfing.com has also picked up so well and you can attend events organized by locals which are quite handy as they really treat you well and are all ears to hear about your city and travel adventures. Thanks once again for taking the effort to make the video and keep up the balanced personality. 👏 👍👍

    This video is better-suited for the under-35 solo traveler. I'm in a different age demographic — trust me.
