The topic of solo travelling is a much-discussed one amongst travellers: will you, won’t you? Is it safe or unsafe, is it lonely or actually one of the best ways to meet people?
I’m confident that this episode of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast will help you remember that solo travel can be one of the best ways to travel and if you haven’t tried it yet, I hope it will help encourage you to give it a go soon!
Show notes: Episode 148 of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast
Solo travelling is one of those things that you might fear before you try it: but if you take the plunge you will find that the life of a solo traveller is insanely rewarding. In Episode 148 of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast I talk to three people who have done a lot of solo travel in all kinds of parts of the world and they all agree that including some solo travelling in the mix is absolutely worthwhile.
My first guest is Alastair Humphreys who has done some very adventurous solo travel and finds it both soul-searching and rewarding. We talk in particular about one of his solo trips walking across India.
Next up I chat with Justin Watson who, like me, thought at first that solo travel might be difficult; when he finally tried he was very glad he did.
Finally, I speak with Michela Fantinel about one of her first solo travel experiences in New York City – since then she has gone on to do numerous solo trips and would thoroughly recommend it.
