My Birthday Self-photography Shoot In Portugal

My Birthday Self-photography Shoot In Portugal

This time last week, I celebrated my birthday in Portugal on a solo trip.

A few years ago, when I first started solo travelling, I kind of gave up on the idea of getting any good pictures of myself while travelling. I’m hella shy and awkward, so I’m not really a fan of asking a stranger to take a picture for me. And the few times I did, let’s just say that you won’t be seeing the pictures.

Fortunately for me, I met bae (AKA my tripod) and since then my photography game has been upgraded.

My first solo trip of 2018: Lisbon

My first solo trip of 2018: Lisbon

Natas, sangria, street art and stunning architecture. These are just a few reasons why anyone would fall in love with Lisbon.

I’ve been obsessed with Lisbon since I’d seen my fellow blogger, Maya’s beautiful pictures and vlog (check out her blog).

So when I saw that Ryanair was doing deals, there was no hesitation at all and at the end of January/beginning of February, I finally got to cross Lisbon off my bucket list!

My unexpected solo trip to South-East Asia

My unexpected solo trip to South-East Asia

Hey Wanderlusters!

So 2017, was definitely a year that I really challenged myself and forced myself to get out of my comfort zone.

I solo travelled for the first time in January 2017 and I have now been to seven countries on my lonesome.

Looking back now, I realise that I probably wouldn’t have tried solo travelling last year if it wasn’t for my goal to visit 25 countries before I turned 25 (check out the countries I visited and the pictures).

Seven reasons why you should solo travel at least once

Seven reasons why you should solo travel at least once

A few years ago, my friend told me that she was going to Paris on her own. Being the good friend that I am, I obviously had to invite myself, as everyone knows it’s not safe for a woman to travel alone after all!

Fast forward to today, and I have now solo travelled to seven countries and in two weeks, I will be off to Lisbon on my first solo trip of 2018. I am challenging the limitations that I once placed upon myself.

Thankfully, my friend Maria got to finally have her own solo trip last September, since I hijacked her first attempt. Sorry about that! 🙈
