Eurotrip - first solo travel! Help?

Hey peeps!

I'm currently planning my first ever solo travel beginning of next year and feeling a bit overwhelmed.

I'm going to Tanzania on a tour and instead of flying back to Brisbane, I'll be heading off to Berlin to start off my (hopefully) year-long round-the-world trip. It's a bit optimistic on my part considering the amount of savings I have but gotta keep my fingers crossed!

First leg of my RTW trip is in Europe where I'm hoping to stay for 6 months. I am a photographer/filmmaker by profession which makes me want to stay in each city I'm visiting longer (2 weeks each). Here's a list of cities on my itinerary:

Berlin -> Krakow -> Bucharest -> Sofia -> Santorini -> Sarajevo -> Belgrade -> Budapest -> Bratislava -> Barcelona -> Porto

Here are my questions:

  1. What do you think of my itinerary? I looked at the map and tried to do a full circle as I'm hoping to go to the UK after Portugal.

  2. How should I go about booking flights and accommodation? I'm thinking of just flying with RyanAir between countries and bus/rail/walk within the city. Accommodation wise, I'm thinking of couchsurfing as much as I can as well as staying in hostels. Should I book hostels in advance or am I fine just looking through hostelworld and walking in on the day I arrive to a city?

  3. Re: flights, would I need to always have onward flight tickets around Europe or just a one-way ticket is fine when I arrive?

  4. I've budgeted around AUD5000 for this leg (USD4000). Do you think this will be enough or should I add more? My main purpose of this travel is for work so I will probably do activities every now and again but not top priority.

  5. How cold does Europe get January - March? I've got thermals and layers packed as per my Kilimanjaro climb requirements.

  6. Any other advice for a newbie like me? I'm really, REALLY excited but feeling a bit anxious now that I have to actually plan things. I'm not the most organised person and would usually prefer playing it by ear.

Thanks in advance! :)

Yuksom, the old capital of Sikkim. A very nice little town high up the mountains.

Bayeux (Normandy) is an amazing venture point for all things history - medieval history, WW1 and WW2

Cambodia - beginning of october

Hi Guys,

I'm going to Cambodia at the beginning of october for about 2 weeks.

I'm now a little scared of Malaria. We will be going to Phnohm Penh, Seam Riep (angkhor), Koh Rong and Shanoukville.

Should I take Malaria medicine before or what would you recommend for these places?

Grateful for every advice (ofc I'll be visiting a doctor before the journey)

First solo trip, ~6 weeks in Europe, have no idea how to start planning and would love some pointers. (19F Sweden)

I understand that of course I should do most of the planning myself, based on what I want to do, but I'd like some pointers on where to begin and HOW to plan. It's hard to Google something when you have no idea what you're looking for.

I'm looking at about 6 weeks, starting mid September maybe. My budget is around 3000-4000€, can go higher if necessary but would prefer something along those lines. My main points of interest are Amsterdam, Paris, southern France, Lisbon, Venice, Florence, Budapest and Zagreb, maybe Athens as well, but I have no idea yet if it would be doable. I don't like flying (phobia) so would like to take the train as much as possible, probably getting an interrail pass.

Other than that, I have no clue how to do this. Where do I start? Do I begin with planning more my exact route (not the time I'll stay, more like "after I'm done in X place, I'll take the train to Y place") and looking at what to do in each city?

What accomodation would be ideal? Airbnb seems reasonable price wise and having my own kitchen would be nice since I'm vegan and vegan restaurants are notoriously expensive. I'd rather spend the cash on experiences over food. Backpacker hostels seem good too, as I'm a very sociable person and fear I would get lonely.

On that note, what's the best way to meet other travellers, or locals to hang out with? Tinder I guess could work to meet loal hotties, but I'm not a huge ONS person (for the STD and safety risk) and I feel like people might just want to use me for that. Is Couchsurfing a good idea, not to find couches to stay on (feels too dangerous as a young girl with the physique of a beanpole) but to meet people to hang out with?

Sorry if y'all answer questions like this all the time, I'd just like pointers. Thank you! x

First solo trip, finally

I've lurked on this sub for awhile now, wanting to travel but my work situation was preventing it. Over the last two months I've done a lot of traveling, but with friends. Today is finally the day that I'm going solo. I'm 25 yr old male from the US, going to Prague for two nights, and then at the end of the week going to Florence for two nights. I'm a little nervous but mostly excited, wish me luck! And if anyone happens to be in Prague for the next two days, or Florence from the 25th to the 27th and wants to meet up, let me know!

How to convince my family to let me travel alone?

I'd like to try solo traveling one day (why not next summer). I talked about it with my family and they are not happy about it, especially my mother. First of all, they're afraid I may get beaten up, stolen or worse. Secondly, they're also afraid I might get bored being all by myself.

I don't have many friends and my best friend might go in vacations with his family, also next year.

How can I make them feel less worried about my idea of traveling alone?
