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.

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 yourself 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?

The same goes here, the early the better.
