Ciara Johnson July 26, 2019 Travel I Have a Confession: Solo Travel Scares Me. Here's Why I Go Anyway... Ciara Johnson July 26, 2019 Travel Don’t get it twisted.I have doubts every time I take a solo tripEvery-time I’m in an Airbnb alone and I hear a thumpAs I walk down the street with a man following closely behind behindWhen I slide into the backseat of an cab- just a male driver and IWhen I notice someone’s eyes lingering for a second too long As I grip my valuables closely to my side on a crowded busAnd as I stare out the plane window during takeoff. Despite how the photos turn out, it’s not always twirling in the streets, sometimes it’s speed walking down a dimly lit alley while looking over my shoulderSolo travel doesn’t necessarily get easier or less scary, at least not for me. These thoughts still sit in the back of my mind because let’s face it, anything can happen anywhere at any time. Even still, I refuse to let that stop me from living and seeing this great big world. I choose to acknowledge the fear, be vigilant, and enjoy everything as much as possible. I choose to go and keep going. - phone notes from Guanajuato, Mexico How I Stay Safe While Traveling SoloYou Might Also Enjoy: Travel Blog I Have a Confession: Solo Travel Scares Me.
