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.
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! 🙈
