2. Keep yourself well-protected and well-prepared
Health is wealth and it must be protected most of all. Being adventurous enough to enjoy the things around and the natural beauty you are in never means that you should be careless about your health and hygiene. So follow the general rules of hygiene wherever you are and keep yourself well-protected from the adverse effects of the weather there.
Better take the membership of some worldwide organization regarding your health and security. As a result, keep enjoying their services across the borders as well. Not only will you yourself feel relaxed and safe this way but your parents and other family members will also become quite satisfied and tension free about your health and security.
3. Do remember to jot down the worthy things
Recreational trips are always worth remembering, but human neurons are unable to retain the things for long. So it will be quite advisory to note down the memorable things and whatever interesting comes your way. You must keep a journal or a diary and spare only 5 to 10 minutes daily to write down the things chronologically.
It will be quite valuable for you in your later years when you wish to recollect your cherished memories and show them to your wards. Moreover, pictures are taken from attractive angles and with the latest camera also do the trick and preserve your nice memories. But, most importantly, you must never cost your enjoyment of the trip for pictures and notes.
4. Try to talk with everyone
Whenever you are on a trip towards a distant strange land, try your best to talk frankly and frequently with everyone around whether or not you know him or her. It will make you more familiar to the people there and your ratio of enjoying the things around will enhance automatically due to the knowledge and guidance gained through talking with the locals. Besides, your being familiar will also increase you are being safe and secured over there.
5. Never try to over-share the things
It is good to share your status at the social media or face to face, but over-sharing the specifics may sometimes lead to botheration. There is no need to tell others what your exact location is in a far-off strange land. Being a solo travel female hampers you to be so open to everyone. You may tell others the country or the city you are on a visit but it is never advisory to tell the name of the hotel you are staying at.
6. Have full confidence in yourself
As a solo female traveller, you must always remain fully confident of yourself when you walk around. If you lose your self-confidence, you will have to face a lot of troubles in your stay over there. So, always face the things around with bundles of confidence and trust in your abilities.
Make good research of the area you intend to visit and be respectful to the culture and traditions over there. Try to become a part of their lifestyle and enjoy the proceedings with confidence.
7. Go shopping and buy something specific
One of the best tips for a solo woman traveller is to go shopping from a local grocery store and buy the most familiar and common shopping bag. So that you may be identified as a local person.
Whenever you need something, you must go to buy with that bag across your shoulders. It will make you much familiar with the people there and you will have better prospects to stay longer with ease and comfort.
8. If possible, assign yourself some task
Doubtlessly, the best you can notice and enjoy the novelties is when you are alone on your solo travel. But, at the same time, it also becomes monotonous sometimes and you often feel solitary even in a crowd. The best way to avoid this feeling is to assign you some task and keep pursuing it wholeheartedly. Whether big or small, a task keeps you well targeted and you stay safe from getting bored.
Moreover, this way you may remain more connected with the locals and the travellers and feel fulfilled.
9. Try to stay in hostels
Staying in hostels broadens your vision through increasing your chances of interaction with various persons from different lands. This also introduces you to different cultures and schools of thoughts which may cause you to learn new ideas and lifestyles. Life of a person staying in a hostel abroad reflects a maturity in his approach towards accommodating others with tolerance.
10. Don’t use your phone too often
Keeping yourself busy with your mobile phone too much will spoil the whole fun of your trip. Finding you too much engrossed with your cell phone, nobody will dare approach you to have some chat about your feelings in their country or area. Not only will you remain deprived of many natural scenes or phenomena but also let the locals think that you are a bit too reserved to like mixing up with them.
