Traveling alone is not so frightening ... CaraMaps proves it! ✔If you are interested in traveling by your own, you should know that a trip alone is not as frightening, difficult or impossible as you think. In fact, with a little planning, it can be the best trip you’ve ever experienced.
- Organization is the key word for solo travelers. You can only rely on you and you can only blame you if it goes wrong. Buy and read your guide, check out the travel forums, plan your ideal journey and don’t forget to estimate your budget. Don’t forget to look for the parking or service areas too. And keep in mind that you can plan your trip on CaraMaps.
- Safety is also an important point, if not the most important one. You have to avoid countries at risk. Needless to say, this is not the time to go to the Crimea or Syria, beautiful destinations certainly, but really not serene. You also have to be careful not to walk alone at night as well as pick alive places to sleep and not isolated parking.
- Meet with people. Traveling alone does not necessarily mean staying alone. On the contrary, traveling alone allows more meetings and exchanges, whether with local populations or other travelers. To make your trip more friendly and warmly, you can choose to park and to stay a night at a CaraMaps’ host for example. This way, you will discover new people as well as a new way of life.
- Keep your family informed. When one travels alone, it is to have more freedom, to be accountable to no one. Yes, that’s probably true. However, this does not prevent you from always keeping your relatives well informed of your travels. No need to give a specific time or hour, of course, but take the time to tell your family where you are which is somewhat reassuring for everyone.
