Travelling solo – the internet paints the average female solo traveller as brave, confident, sociable and adventurous. Unafraid to take on the planet alone whilst being unapologetically being themselves.
That’s who I wanted to be.
At 20 years old, I was not the cripplingly anxious teen I once was, but nonetheless, my introverted self sometimes struggled in the social department. I was desperate to burst out of my comfort bubble and become a new, ‘better’ version of myself, and that is when I decided the road to my ideal self was solo travel. Booking my first solo trip to Corfu, Greece, was a thrill in itself!
