I wanted to be prepared for everything, so I looked up as many tips as possible. What I know now is that you can’t be fully prepared for it. You will make plenty of mistakes, spend too much money, hook up with the wrong person, believe me I went through it all. I could write a book about all the mistakes I’ve made while traveling. But ain’t nobody got time for that, instead of writing a book I just wrote down a few golden tips every girl can use while traveling alone. You’re welcome.
Do your research
If you’re a beginner, choose a safe and easy country to visit. For all my female travelers I would fully recommend Asia. There are plenty of backpackers everywhere so I never felt unsafe or alone. You can also find some Facebook groups with thousands of people sharing great tips and locations to one another. You can ask anything you want, or even meet up with people who are already backpacking in the country for a long time.
You will thank me for this one. You will be moving around a lot, a heavy backpack is the last thing you will need in a climate that you’re not used to. I always pack some essentials as swimsuits, light pants, jumpsuits. Everything else you can buy there, and everything is cheaper too!
