I am 22 right now and took my first solo travel at 21 and after that, there’s no stopping but are you still wondering what’s the best age to start solo travel.
This is not a big deal; the big deal is to step out into the world and experience the world from your own perspective.
The school kids who landed on this article by searching – why the heck I can’t travel solo because I am not in the ’20s?
Dude you can, I had met 16 years old mature guy and the knowledge of surroundings he is having at that age is mind-blowing and the same guy turned out to be a brother of a person I met somewhere. Two known heads are meant to be banged when they step out, small world. These few lines just told that the best age to start solo travel can be lower than the ’20s too.
Lexie Alford at the age of 21 became the youngest to travel to every country. An epic example who has broken all the barriers of saying a ‘perfect age’.
We will now start “The best age to start solo travel” but before –
The opportunity of making your presence felt, the opportunity of creating an impact in the world, the opportunity of taking decisions, the opportunity of involving in the stories of others.
That’s a travel opportunity for me and I try to make my every minute count.
What is Solo Travel for you, let me know in the comment section?
Why the ’20s is the Best Age to Start Solo Trip?
1. Young Blood
The Youngblood is more agile and the curiosity to discover and explore at the 20’s age is towards maturity.
If you direct your mind in favor of Travel: the symptoms it shows to ourselves, other well beings will be more balanced.
This line was not written in any book, anything I discuss here is more of experience talking.
2. Makes you Independent at an early age
Everybody becomes Independent at certain stages of life but solo travel and that too in the early ’20s makes you Independent before the actual age.
Depending upon yourselves right from the word go is among the major trait’s solo travel provides.
Let’s discuss this with an example – Suppose you are on a solo trip to a certain place and all you want to do is; take the control of your solo travel.
That’s it go ahead and make the move – If you want to wake early then woke up, if you want to explore on foot then the way is all yours if you want to spend some time with the locals then no one can stop you.
3. Introduce you to the world
If you are at a party and you got introduced to the person who has hosted the party towards the end or when you are leaving. What will you think?
Why Travelling alone is Important at least once in a lifetime?
Once in a lifetime because to gain exposure and face the circumstances on your own.
What kind of circumstances?
Suppose you’re stuck in a situation like –
You are an Introvert and traveling to a place full of strangers with nothing to do rather than telling yourself to open up. I hope you got this example.
Now you have only one thing to do, let your inner self get out and engage with the strangers to get insights of the place you are traveling, which will ultimately help you to calm down as an Introvert and take balanced decisions.
How to Plan your first Solo Travel?
I already did 6 Solo Trip this year, i.e. considers myself liable to answer this question.
First Solo Trip brings excitement as well as a healthy tension that how it’s going to be like, what I supposed to do alone and what if I started getting bored and stuffs like that.
But you’ll only be going to overcome these by only facing them.
1. Make your first move
Start planning with packing and what medium you will be choosing to travel. This will solve 30% of your fear of travelling alone.
Check what’s the condition of the place in terms of weather, any necessary medicine you’ll going to require and whether you are going to choose public transport or hire a private vehicle for a day. This will give your trip a well-planned start.
2. Accuracy in time
Being accurate or committed with your time will always going to give you an edge to utilize the time properly.
Suppose – planning at night that what needed to be done the next day and sticking with the plan is a good example of accuracy.
3. Whether that particular place is safe to Travel alone
How to get to know if that particular place is safe to travel solo?
Social media plays an important role in this part – You can search for the place you are visiting on Facebook
Can also check the very recent images and that will give you an idea of what people are saying and background idea and even can talk to them by sending a direct message to know the experience and what problems they have faced.
With so many benefits and continuous up-gradation of technology, nowhere is out of reach from human feet.
How to feel comfortable and Travel freely in the ’20s
It all starts with a change in ourselves and our behavior towards the environment and surroundings.
A happy and smiling face can make a bad day and a positive response or attitude can make a soul smile.
Being in the ’20s fills us with the raw behavior and if we can convert it into healthy behavior than we can create a difference in our environment and likewise feel comfortable traveling around anywhere in the world.
We just need to keep our perspective/attitude right towards our surroundings and rest everything will fall on the place.
The ’20s is the best age to Start Solo Travel if you ask me and there’s no doubt that if you are men solo traveler or a woman solo traveler difficulty are bound to arise and if you face the circumstances, solution finds its way to help you out.
