Get Inspired To Travel Solo

The chances of me doing a bit of solo traveling are increasing as days go by here… sorry, Mom.

The reason for our recent move to China is for Eric’s education. That leaves me, a full-time travel blogger with a serious case of wanderlust, hanging out in the Gulou District of Nanjing. I’m a week in and things are starting to feel routine, so I know I’m overdue for some exploration!

First, I need to get a taste for the sense of empowerment that I know I’ll gain from traveling solo. To find inspiration, I did what I do best: browsed social media. Here’s a compilation of the bloggers I found who have totally inspired me.


Inspiring Female Travel Bloggers

The Brave Dame

I just found this blog a few days ago, and I absolutely love it! Rose describes herself as a “scaredy cat traveling the world alone”, so she’s basically speaking right at my anxiety-prone self. This blog post made me laugh, and for me it went beyond realizing what it means to eat alone:

Psycho Traveller

I’ve been watching Aly’s YouTube videos for a few months now. She transitioned from full-time student to full-time world traveler a few years ago and she’s got a really raw sense of humor that cracks me up. This vlog that she put up recently really hit home for me:

Claira Hermet In My Life Your Hands

This is one brave Brit! She started a series called “My Life Your Hands”, where she asks her viewers what they want her to try and where they want her to travel next, and she goes and does it, filming along the way. I am never doing this – seriously. The reason it’s inspiring is because it makes my potential adventures look so much less intense.

World Of Wanderlust

Brooke is a pretty well-known travel blogger and to be honest I find her blog to be a bit impersonal, but I really like this video. This quote sums it up: “The way I see it, I’ve got two options: 1) I can fall into a black hole of misery, or 2) I can own it.”

Main Takeaways

To sum it up, here are my three main takeaways from these blog posts and videos:

1. Attitude is everything
2. Pack light
3. You will make friends along the way

  • I travelled alone when I lived in Spain and it was the most empowering and fun thing I did there. It’s fun to be able to follow your own agenda and you always meet interesting travellers from all over the world. I highly recommend it!

    • Hi Shannon! Thanks for leaving this comment 🙂 It’s such a confidence booster to hear about another female’s positive solo travel experience! I’m definitely doing it in Asia!! I’m so ready to feel that sense of empowerment that will undoubtedly follow.
