Steps to decide on how to travel solo.

Solo traveling is attractive. It is beautiful to be on your own especially when you have waited all your life to be on your own in your own la la land. But, taking the plunge is the decider. To do or not to. To carry on or let go. To go on a solo trip is great, but to take that decision requires you to let go off that fear and just do it.


It is not an easy one. To take permission, to face rejection, to hear the odds and what not. But you need to decide anyway. It is your interest, your dream and no one should teach you otherwise.

So how do you decide? The Flapper Life will help you gain clarity.

Well, it not crazy difficult neither overtly overwhelming. Follow these 5 basic steps and off you go!

  1. Ask yourself- Why?

It is extremely important to be dead sure that you want to take this trip and go alone. Until you are 100% sure that you can pull this off, do not jump into it. Solo Travelling is not as rosy as it looks but also not as daunting as it seems. So, ask questions to yourself before going SOLO.

  1. Choose your destination wisely.

The place you wish to travel should make your feel comfortable and excited. It should serve your purpose of solo travel. You should be sure to stay in this place for a good week to get into the skin of being on your own.

  1. Go with the flow

You don’t have to figure everything out. Keep some room for flexibility and spontaneity.Apart from the things that you have mapped and marked, keep some time for the untouched too.

  1. Ask. Learn.

If you don’t ask, you don’t get. If you don’t understand the directions, don’t go playing monopoly, ask the strangers, confidently. Ask the natives, the best place to explore and learn the basics of the place so that it feels like home, for some time.

  1. It is okay to feel, lonely.

Feeling alone on your solo trip is quite normal, but getting upset and ruining your trip is not any solution. No problem if you’re an introvert, learn to be the first one to talk on this trip. It is okay to feel a wide range of emotions. Remember, you are here to understand yourself better.

Solo travel will really challenge you as a person. It will help you be better at having conversations, getting social. You will be more adaptive and courageous. So, when are you taking your shot at solo?
