Soul-o Traveling - International Edition

Soul-o Traveling - International Edition

Hey Lux Babes,

Happy 2023!

I'm supposed to be in Vegas right now with my bestie, but life has other plans. Despite this, I can say 2023 started off right now. I'll give you guys the details on that later!

While I'm mourning Vegas, I figured that I'd give you guys some quick tips on Soul-o (ahhhh, get it? You get it!) traveling safely internationally.

Traveling solo internationally can be a thrilling and rewarding experience. It allows you to fully immerse yourself in a new culture, make your own schedule, and rely on yourself for all decision making. However, it's important to be prepared and do your research to ensure a safe and enjoyable trip. Here are some tips for traveling solo internationally:

  1. Choose a destination that is safe for solo travelers: Research the destination you are planning to visit and consider factors such as the crime rate, cultural customs, and political climate. It's also a good idea to check the U.S. Department of State's website for travel advisories and alerts.
  2. Stay in a secure location: Book a hotel or hostel in a safe area of the city, and make sure to keep your belongings secure at all times. Avoid walking alone at night, and consider carrying a personal alarm or other self-defense tool.
  3. Be aware of your surroundings: Keep an eye on your belongings and be aware of your surroundings at all times. Don't pull out your phone or camera in crowded areas, and be mindful of pickpockets.
  4. Have a plan: It's always a good idea to let someone back home know your itinerary, including your accommodation details and contact information. It's also a good idea to have a rough plan for each day, including activities and transportation arrangements.
  5. Don't be afraid to ask for help: If you need help or have any concerns, don't be afraid to ask locals or staff at your accommodation for assistance. It's also a good idea to have the phone number for the local embassy saved in case of an emergency.
  6. Embrace the solo experience: Embrace the opportunity to travel solo and make the most of it. Talk to locals, try new foods, and take in all that the destination has to offer. It's also a good idea to make connections with other travelers and join organized tours or activities.

International soul-o traveling can be a truly enriching, life changing experience.

By being prepared and staying aware of your surroundings, you can have a safe and enjoyable trip.

Until next time (and hopefully with a margarita in my hand on the beach),
