Hi @Meghan_Fisher,
My first time overseas I travelled solo. It was one of my nerve-racking experiences of my life. I have done another since and about to head off again in about 5 weeks. I travelled to fairly safe countries at the time. But it can be hard with all the crap that’s going on in the world.

Being prepared helps a lot. Having a backup of travel documents, both on your phone and a paper copy. Including your passport (photocopy). I always have a travel SIM or mobile roaming plan with emergency contacts on hand.

If you have any specific questions about money, maps (GPS on your phone) for finding your way around, what to bring, please feel to ask.
Cheers,
Damien

I think travelling solo is a great hunt, Because you can learn lot of things and manage your own. The biggest problem with travelling solo is the safety. so i always avoid travelling at night and visit on;ly places which are tourist centric and traveling a public transport.
