TRAVEL TIP EDITION – @THISGIRLGIGGLES
I get asked these questions all the time:
Should I travel alone? Is it safe? Should I travel with a friend?
I’ve been there. You’re nervous and scared to travel alone, so you decide to travel with a friend. Yes, they are wonderful to go out with for a glass of wine and chit-chat. They know you can’t drink more than one and it’s time to go home after your third. Of course, they’re a good listener when you’re pouring your heart out.
But, have you actually spent 14 days together before? That’s 336 hours together.
I made SO many dear friendships while traveling alone. You meet other solo travelers and you mingle with people that you normally wouldn’t have if you were not traveling alone. You get me?
Are you planning your first solo-trip? I highly recommend Mexico City!
This is what I’ve learned from the past.
TRUST ME, it will only get worse in a foreign country!
