I’ve been asked many times by fellow young females if I would write a post about solo traveling for the first time. I noticed that there are many young girls who would love to try it, but either are not allowed by their parents, can’t muster up the courage, or simply don’t know how to go about it. Although I am far from being an expert (the longest I travelled alone was one week), I like to give you my best tips.
It’s been eight months already since I visited Salzburg (time flies!). It was the last stop before we drove back to the Netherlands after a road trip through the Balkans for 3,5 weeks. After three weeks of beautiful scenery, great food, fascinating culture and mostly friendly people, Salzburg had some big ass shoes to fill.
No money is no excuse. It’s essentially a mantra for me (i built my business while I was broke and travel the world on a budget constantly), but still I keep running into people who say they’d like to travel more, but can’t because BROKE. Bullshhhh*. If you really want to you’ll find a way, if not, you’ll find an excuse. And to prove to you that you can travel with ZERO dollar, I wrote this post: how to travel for free (the £0 travel guide).
(* this is tough love, I really do love you, you know).
The USA is probably my favourite road trip destination… not because of its complete lack of a functioning public transport system but because the country is so diverse. It’s addicting, and so I keep returning. From the historical east coast to the chilled and sunny west coast, and from the quiet midwest to bustlin’ Florida. And don’t even get me started on the Natural Parks… they are INSANE. You can go from desert to snowy mountain peaks in a matter of hours. But if you’re planning a road trip in the country of endless highways, there’s 7 things you should know about driving in the US, my boss babe.
