Solo Travel Tip #3

This tip is about:

. . .

When you finally decide to step out of your comfort zone, and travel abroad alone, you’re going to be so happy, and proud, but there’s one thing you should know.

When you travel abroad alone, you are going to want to make international friends, and meet people that speak the language and know the culture.
So, while you’re alone in a foreign country, that’s what you do.
That’s what’s on your mind because you don’t want to be alone all the time, so you start making friends to explore with, learn the language, and make amazing international connections.
And, in the moment, it’s all amazing and great fun, but soon it’s going to be time to say bye to that amazing country and those awesome new friends. And, that’s when the difficult part begins.

. . .

The first hardest part is actually saying bye to your amazing new friends.
The second hardest part is leaving a new country and culture that you started adapting to and loving so much.
The third, and final hardest part is going home, and getting used to seeing everything differently.

. . .

While traveling abroad alone, you learn more about yourself, you make new friendships and you learn to live differently in another country.
And, although all these things are awesome, the worst part is coming back to your home country because your perspective has changed, and sometimes it can feel weird to go back to your old ways. Especially when you had such a good experience abroad; you don’t want to lose this amazing, new version of yourself.

. . .

So, if you ever feel lost after a trip abroad:
Remember that stepping out of your comfort zone and changing your perspective is what it takes to move forward, and change your life.
And, now you have friends in another country that you can visit whenever you feel homesick for that country.


Thanks for reading!

I hope this post encourages you to step out of your comfort zone, and change your perspective on the world (don’t be afraid of doing something different!).

¬°Una publicaci√≥n en espa√Īol!

So, just a heads up: this is a short post…
Also, please don’t judge my Spanish. I’ve lived in Chile for 3 months, so I’ve learned a lot, but, I know, I still have lots to learn. But, I wanted to try to write a post in Spanish.
So, here it is:

. . .

¡Hola, buenas días!

He estado viviendo en Chile durante los √ļltimos 3 meses, y he aprendido muchas cosas aqu√≠ durante los √ļltimos 3 meses.
Tantas cosas que una publicación como esta no es suficiente para explicar todo.
Además, hay muchas cosas que no puedo explicar porque he hecho muchas cosas que solo puedes entender si también has viajado y has vivido en un otro país (algunas cosas son demasiado muy confusas para explicar).

Durante los √ļltimo 3 meses, aprend√≠ que viajar es una cosa que realmente me hace feliz. Tambi√©n, aprend√≠ muchas cosas sobre m√≠ y muchas cosas sobre Chile (un mundo muy diferente de mi pa√≠s).
Aprendí que hay mucho mas cosas a explorar en el mundo y que voy a hacerlo porque no puedo dejar de viajar después de vivir en otro país.
Esta experiencia me hace querer explorar muchos más países.
Despu√©s de esta experiencia, quiero continuar aprendiendo espa√Īol, seguir viajando y hacer una diferencia en el mundo (de cualquiera manera que puedo).

. . .

-¬°Gracias por leer!
P.D. Si alguna vez consideras visitar Chile, no lo pienses más, ¡solo vete! ¡Lo recomiendo totalmente! ¡Es realmente un país muy hermoso!

Thanks for reading (this probably poorly written post)!
I just wanted to try and write a blog post in Spanish while I’m still in Chile for myself to remember to continue to learn more Spanish (this is like a checkpoint in my Spanish learning).
And, I hope it encourages you to travel & try to learn a new language!
