I spent a year traveling the world solo, and I've returned with more lessons than I can count. I never set off to "find myself" or escape reality; I simply wanted to see more of the world. I wanted to experience all that life has to offer, because there's so much out there just waiting to be discovered. So, I quit my job, sold my belongings, and set off on a solo journey around the world. I visited countries in Central America, South America, Europe, and Africa, and completely fell in love every step of the way. I returned with a bunch of irreplaceable memories, and some of the best travel tips I have after traveling the world will stick with me forever.
I knew that I was likely to enjoy myself, but I had no idea what I was exactly in for. I had no concrete plans or itinerary, and I couldn't predict what would happen. I didn't know who I would meet or what mishaps would occur along the way. I wasn't looking for anything in particular, but I found so much more than I could have ever imagined on this journey. This was an unforgettable experience that will stick with me for the rest of my life. I was able to pick up plenty of helpful travel tips along the way if you're considering an adventure like this for yourself.
