Travelling with your friends and family is fun, but travelling solo is an entirely different game. It&rsquos a life lesson, a crash course, and an exciting experience all packed together. Although doing your own thing on your terms while travelling might be fun at first, loneliness is quick to catch up. But going solo does not necessarily mean you&rsquore all on your own, without anybody to turn to if you need help. The best part about travelling is that you&rsquoll find company when you least expect it. Here are some ways you can make the most of your solo trip and meet exciting folks on your travels

Stay In Hostels 

There are many perks of living in a hostel during your travels&ndashit&rsquos budget-friendly and most centrally located. Still, it&rsquos great for solo travellers as it holds many social events where one can meet up with a fellow solo traveller from any part of the world. This is one of the reasons why solo travellers mostly choose to ditch hotels for hostels. 

Take Group Tours

Group trips are a perfect and convenient way of exploring a new city, but at the same time, it&rsquos a great avenue to meet new and like-minded people. Travel agencies are one of the best ways of booking a group trip. However, if you are staying in a hostel, do enquire if they have any guided group tours. 

Learn Something New 

While travelling teaches you a lot, it can also present an excellent opportunity to acquire new skills. From learning the local language or how to cook the local cuisine to learning any art form unique to the place you&rsquore visiting, you will find something that may pique your interest. Taking group classes or workshops also presents you with the opportunity to meet new people while learning something you never knew before. 

Reach Out To People 

As the world becomes more connected and accessible, it&rsquos common to come across somebody you know already living in a city you may be travelling to. Reaching out to people you may know directly or via somebody while visiting a new city is always a good idea. Catching up over a drink or planning an outdoor activity with them is a great way to break the monotony of solo travel. 

Stay With A Local 

Homestays are the next best hostel option while you&rsquore travelling alone. There are a plethora of sites where you can choose to book a stay with a family. This isn&rsquot just a great way to experience how the locals live but also to have company while travelling alone. Platforms like Airbnb are great for finding verified and experienced hosts in your next travel destination.
