Things to do when you’re travelling alone: try something new
One of the great things about travelling alone is that you can go anywhere you want on a whim and do anything you like. That includes going to places you previously might not have thought of or doing something you’ve never tried before. All in the spirit of broadening your horizons.
One of the themes of my recent RTW trip was challenging myself to confront certain fears. That obviously meant doing stuff I wouldn’t ever have dreamt of doing. Before I knew it, I found myself zip-lining across the forest canopy 20-odd meters above the ground (confronting my fear of heights) and swimming with sharks (confronting my ‘Jaws’ complex!); these were fun, exhilarating experiences with some educational value. I realised that these fears were, well, based on nothing really.
Whatever you choose, have fun but keep it safe always!
