Things to do when you’re travelling alone: take your own picture
If you haven’t done this before, maybe because it looks silly (ok, I admit, it does look silly), get over it and give it a go. Turn the camera around, point it at yourself and snap! It’s great fun and you’d be surprised how well some of the pictures turn out. If you’re on your own, it’s also a great way to strike up a conversation with someone…. the sight of anyone fumbling with a camera desperately trying to take a “I’ve been here, done that” picture will not go unnoticed. You’ll be getting offers of help in no time! 🙂 One note of caution: choose an honest-looking person or get ready to make a dash… just in case your helper decides to run off with your camera.
