The 10 Commandments of Solo Travel

People choose to travel on their own through desire, necessity or both.  It’s by far my favourite way to travel: I love the freedom it gives me, the ability to adapt to my surroundings with a flexible itinerary and mindset, and the opportunity to follow my own path both spiritually and geographically.  I have found it easier to meet other travellers, befriend locals, develop an independence and confidence that helps me in daily life back home and have enjoyed a liberating journey of self-discovery.

I get the most out of solo travel by following these “10 commandments”:
