SOLO TRAVEL TIPS: HOW TO MAKE FRIENDS WHEN TRAVELING (Part i)



http://grrrltraveler.com/the-grrr/traveling-solo/how-to-make-friends-when-you-travel-alone/ Travel Tips: How to Make Friends when you Travel (Part 1) Backpacking solo, traveling alone, solo women… is it scary? I’m to share tips with you on making friends when you travel alone.

Hostels are very social, social places. The travelers that go there want to meet and mingle with other travelers. That’s the whole idea of a hostel. People there also tend to be on a budget. They want to meet to exchange stories, exchange ideas and tips.

[#2 Look for solo travelers]
Look for other solo travelers.

The backpacker route can feel different from the tourist route. You’ll notice a lot more solo travelers there. It’s easier to meet people. Whenever I’m looking for someone to do things with or eat with, I always look for the solo traveler. Solo travelers are a lot more approachable because they’re by themselves.

Although I feel comfortable approaching a group or couple, the solo traveler is the easiest person to approach.

[#3. Smile and ask questions]

Smile and ask questions. Personally, it’s easier for me to ask questions. Questions are practical, informational and useful to me as a traveler. They’re also great icebreakers and non-threatening ways to open a conversation.

If I overhear someone, I’ll start asking them questions because I want to know these things.

What’s also great about asking questions is that sometimes it leads into invitations to do things or for others to invite you. When you discuss what you’re interested in, people around you take notice of that and start assessing what they want to do.

4. Group Tours
Not necessarily are you going to meet people to do things with, but you will meet other travelers to converse with.

Hopefully this was helpful for you.

Travel safe, smart and fun.

  1. I like your story you are so lovely! BTW, if you want to find a travel buddy, I totally recommend Serentrip app! It's very trustworthy. So especially good for women. I met travel buddies included travelers and local friends using this app! Just register my destination and travel date then serentrip app will find people who have similar plan. Also I can chat with them in app in advance. Thus can make your travel story. Try it !! http://www.serentrip.net/korea you can dowonload this on mobile!

  5. I'm traveling solo to Peru at the end of October and I can't get enough of your helpful vlogs. Thank you so much. I'm trying to absorb as much information from your videos as possible. I'm nervous, anxious, and excited therefore my brain is like a sponge at this point. Thanks again!

  6. Next year I will hopefully travel to San Francisco from Scotland and stay at a hostel but there is just one problem, I'm a 16 year old male travelling solo and most of the people who stay at hostels are all adults so I don't know if they'll see me as an equal and not child, and that's my problem. Do you have any tips for this kind of situation?
    Thanks

  7. I absolutely adore what you're doing and what you stand for in a woman traveling alone and showing others how to do it too. I think it makes it less scary for women to know how you travel and to show them inside your traveling so they know how solo travelers operate.  It gives travelers options.

  8. I THINK I LOVE YOU CHRISTINE, MAYBE NOT JUST A FANTASY ROMANTIC KIND OF LOVE, BUT A SOUL- MATE  OR GRANDFATHER KIND OF LOVE. I HAVE NEVER BEFORE EXPERIENCED ANYONE'S TRAVEL VIDEO'S  THAT  REACHED MY VERY SOUL. YOU ARE SO WONDERFULLY DOING SOMETHING THAT HAD ALWAYS BEEN A  DREAM OF MINE, SHOWING, AND GIVING INSIGHT INTO THIS INCREDIBLE WORLD WE LIVE IN. YOU ARE FAR BEYOND YOUR YEARS CHRISTINE
