I likely won't be able to leave the US within the next year or so due to a visa processing situation. After my initial annoyance about this has passed, I am trying to treat it as an opportunity to see as much of this country as I can.
So tell me - what are your must sees in the US? Bonus points for insider tips and secret spots. Excited to hear your recommendations. Thanks!
I’m 35F and recently single after a LTR of 4 years (Engaged 1 year). It’s been over a month and been doing a lot of work on myself with getting therapy, praying, meditating, podcasts and Reddit peeps.
I’m currently trying to plan a solo trip to Paris. My ex never wanted to travel and just hated a lot of things I liked. I’m a hopeless romantic at heart. I’ve always wanted to travel and visit Paris, I think it’s the hopeless romantic girl in me. Call it my Eat, Pray, Love trip, but I want to go because if I don’t and wait for someone to go with me, it will never happen. I’m trying to get my groove back and just find myself again. There’s a saying I’ve recently heard “if you’re going to be sad, be sad in Paris!”. I’m thinking of going Thanksgiving week. I’m a teacher and I’ll be off that week. Any tips or ideas? I’m on a budget since all my money was going towards the wedding but do have some savings.
I’m thinking about staying at a hostel and get a single room since it seems it will be cheaper and I heard you can meet other solo travelers. I’m not trying to meet any men, just people to connect with and even possibly going through the same experience. Any tips or places you’ve stayed at, places you recommend are safe to stay at as a women.
Another note I wanted to include, I’m a Spanish speaking brown skinned Latina plus sized woman. I’m also wondering how the plan ride will be traveling over 8 hours. Also how people treat POC plus size women in Europe. Anyone travel with Air France? 😬
I went to Italy for a month this time. I brought my favorite sticker with me and took photos with it. It was fun and memorable. I'm curious if people bring a special thing with them too when they travel and take photos.
Hi, I solo traveled a lot in my late twenties, mostly in Asia, even did a study abroad in Japan for half a year.
I'm in my 30s now, no child or spouse, and I really want to go to Asia again and I want to solo travel again but I feel...old?
I used to stay in the cheapest hostels that smell bad in dirty neighborhoods, make friends in guesthouses (no lifelong friends) and I feel like I was less careful and more spontaneous. I went clubbing all night, went on adventurous trips, said yes to everything.
I don't know why I feel like I can't do it anymore now that I'm 31. I don't even go clubbing in my own country anymore. I don't feel like staying in hostels and guesthouses again but what's the fun in staying at a nice hotel if I can't meet locals that are on a trip in their own country? I also feel too old to make 'friends' at hostels, the friendships are shallow and I feel like I can spend my time better, like traveling with my friends and create memories with them. But on the other hand, I want to SOLO travel through Asia again and they only want to go to 1 country, Japan or Korea, and only want to do anime-manga or k-pop things you know.
I was wondering if someone recognizes themselves in this and do you have tips? I wonder if I'm overthinking too much.
Anyone old enough to remember taking travel photos and having to wait until they got home to get the photos developed?
Nowadays with smartphones, there’s instantaneous affirmation of a travel photo. But back in the day, had to pray and hope that the photos turned out okay.
I have basically a week break in between my classes in October. My class ends on the 14th, then I have new class start on the 20th. Am I crazy thinking about booking a flight from the 14th to the 20th?
This would be a USA (West Coast) to Europe trip, so I would essentially lose one day on the flight there. This means I would only have 4 real days of fun there.
