Following on from our stay in Rome and horrendous Airbnb experience, Naidene and I continued onto the next leg of our trip, Lisbon. We were greeted with sunshine and palm trees upon our arrival which made me happy (if anyone knows me, they know that I love sun!). This time round we stayed at the Holiday Inn so we did not have anything to worry about in terms of accommodation. I’m sure Airbnb options would be amazing though!
People often share their desire of travelling solo with me and I always get so excited for them because I know how amazing it can be. Travelling with friends and loved ones is great as you can share memories, but you may find yourself in a predicament where you want to travel and but you have no one to go with! Or even simply, you want to have different travel experience that is based solely on your interests. I found solo travel to be freeing and allowed me to meet people & experience things that I may not necessarily have had the opportunity to have if I was travelling with someone else.
My solo travel experience began whilst I was living in South Korea. During my first vacation, I travelled to Malaysia and Singapore with a friend, however when winter vacation came round, I knew I would be moving back home and Thailand was one of the places I had always wanted to visit. My friends all had different ideas for their winter vacation so I knew that this meant I had to go alone! You can read more about my trip to Thailand here. Since then, I have travelled to Japan, Busan, South Korea and Copenhagen alone.
