    I love this post! I went to Japan for four months all by myself and it was the best decision I’ve ever made! Traveling solo taught me things that I didn’t even know I needed to learn. Although blending in in Japan was hard for me (I’m a blonde American!), learning the language gave me such a huge advantage.

    These are great tips! I’m looking to travel solo more often next year… I’ve traveled a lot and have had glimpses of what it might be like to actually take on the experience alone (like arriving alone or having a few hours alone), so I think it’s time to actually do it. I’ve had some friends used something called Prontopia ( where you can connect with locals if you need to arrive after dark or get lost, and they’ve said it’s been a game-changer.
    Thank you for these! Can’t wait to buy some tickets

      That’s a great goal for the coming year, Haley. And sounds neat!
