How Is It To Travel Alone & Stay In Hostels? (Solo Travel) ►►Be SAFE & USE COMMON SENSE when traveling! 🙂
Studying abroad is also one of the best ways to travel!
►Previous video I did on traveling alone. DEFINITELY check it out!: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1PoH33xH0lY
update: Because I traveled alone I was highlighting the benefits of traveling alone in this video. I’ve done lots of traveling in the past with friends / family, and If you haven’t done much traveling, I’d say then probably DEFINITELY travel with friends / family then. Traveling is a very new experience. I was just saying there is lots of growth that can happen if you travel alone as you fully rely on yourself. However, you will have TONS of growth traveling with friends too. Traveling with companions is always very very fun and not as overwhelming as traveling solo. Most likely safer too.
Also, if traveling alone, be safe! Use common sense! Really research where you will be! You should be fine, but you never know! Especially for solo female travelers, be really intelligent and don’t trust anyone!
This travel alone adventure for me though has definitely been one of the highlights of my life so far tho for sure! Really had a blast, was an adventure, and learned a lot about my self and the world 🙂 Highly highly recommend traveling!!
Another thing that surprised me is how many other solo travelers there are here that I’m meeting. More people than I thought enjoy traveling alone. It’s an awesome experience that I really think everyone should do at least once in their life.
I used the “Hostel World” app on my phone to find / book the hostels. So far I’ve stayed in amazing places. I highly recommend that app because it has ratings and reviews for each hostel so you can get a feel for them beforehand and find the top notch ones. For the best ones, sometimes it’s best to book a little early. Hostels can really vary. They can go from being kind of dirty and have weird people.. to being extremely nice and incredibly welcoming and social. So do a little research!
Out of all the places that I’ve been to, I’d say the best place to go to for your first solo traveling adventure is Prague. It’s very walkable, tourist friendly, and easy to figure out. Lots of cool things to see too. Prague is lot of fun! I don’t recommend staying there for very long because it’s kind of a small city.. but it was a blast for 4 days .For people who’ve never traveled before, I’d highly recommend Prague as your first solo travel destination. Then take a train to a couple other European cities.

BTW, I’m getting a bit tired of my current youtube banner. If anyone wanted to try making me a new youtube banner, I’d love to see what you could cook up. (message me on Facebook)
I really like my current one, but just want something new. I typically like minimalism. And I want something more cool and a more “seductive” banner look. haha
Regarding all the messages I have ever given, I ask you guys to take nothing on my word, but to test the principles and the methods for yourselves and to always think critically. Everyone has their own individualization process. You may be an “outlier”.
