    Hi Kiki! Your blog has not only inspired me to travel,
    but has also given me an idea as to what to look forward to/anticipate as a solo-traveler.
    My biggest fear (aside from getting murdered or something stupid)
    is going into the whole traveling thing alone and not being able to make any valuable friendships out of it.
    I guess what I’m trying to ask is, did you overcome your shyness? If so, when did you start to notice its absence?

    Thanks for your time, hope to hear from you!

      Hey Jessie! Thanks so much for sharing 🙂 And I’ve definitely made some wonderful friends from traveling and even if I don’t talk to them every day, we share those memories together and it’s always fun to catch up. I’m rather open and friendly normally but I totally understand about shyness – especially in a foreign place. Because I was mostly staying at hostels when I first started traveling, it helped to remind myself that many others were in the same boat and usually looking to meet friends, too! I hope that helps a bit 🙂

    Wow! I’ve always wanted to go to Namibia. Thanks for rounding up all the best places. I’ll definitely be adding it to my bucket list. Also, Portugal should be on this list.

      Hey Rica! Namibia is such a wonderful place. And I’ll have to create another list with Portugal on it 🙂
