Ever been on a solo trip? If you have landed on this blog, you must have thought about it. If not, this blog will surely convince you to plan solo travel to go on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

Why do you think that a solo trip is important? It’s simple; it helps you to understand what you can do alone, gives you confidence, inner strength, a lifetime experience, and much more. For those traveler souls, we suggest you travel alone at least once, either on a short trip or a long one and plan budget while exploring the world.

Travel has the power to transform you. You go out exploring the beautiful landscapes or just stroll around town, in the woods, amidst the clouds, enjoying the sea breeze and so many versions of beauty. Not only nature but you will learn about culture, food, people, and so on. And solo travelling just makes everything special.

Now you know how cool it can be to go on a solo trip. The experience in solo travelling may vary, but the list below will save you from the trouble of backpacking. However, it doesn’t differ much whether you are male/female. All you need to figure out are things you might need to survive your solo travel. This solo travel is going to be so much fun with these amazing backpacking tricks.

The Bag You Need:

First thing first, you are going on a solo trip, so you only carry your own luggage. So, dear solo travellers, pick a bag that is enough to have your things and not give you much pain. If the size is big and your belongings are less, what would you do with all the extra space? And if your backpack is small, your things will not fit. So, depending on your need and travel location, select your bag.

Sort Out a Pair of Bottoms:

Now, start with clothes. It now depends on the place you are going to visit. If you are visiting a beach, a pair of shorts is needed. If you are going for a trek or a cold place, you will need more than a pair of shorts. You will need additional track pants or sweatpants to put in your bag. You can always insert some extra depending on the travel plan. And it would help if you always keep an emergency pair.

A Thermos You Must Include:

The steel bottle you carry to work or you see somewhere at home, well, this bottle will give you the relief of cold/hot water storage or a longer time. Hot/ Cold again depends on the need of your travel destination. This is a saviour, and you have got to need it. Be it any weather; a thermos can save the day.

Shoes or Flip Flops:

While travelling solo, prefer comfort over style. Shoes if you go trekking. Yes, it’s mandatory as you might decide that you want to climb the serene mountain in front of you that you want to conquer. Flip flops for the beach and for everywhere and anywhere you go. If you have it in your bag, you can switch to the other option anytime to get some air for your tired and never stopping feet.

All the Cosmetics:

No, we are not talking about a makeup kit. We’re here talk about some necessary items for your skin to protec. What you will need is the following:

  • A good long-lasting Deodorant Spray or Roll on!
  • A facewash, which will keep you fresh during your journey.
  • Any sunscreen lotion with SPF 24-50 SPF level can work really well
  • A sachet of handwash. This will be required for urgent nature calls while camping or travelling.

Girls can include their needs as well if you fit them into space. But you need to make sure the backpack should not get heavy for you.

Electronics – the Saviour:

It’s impossible to imagine a day without a phone. After all, you need to capture your journey through the lens, and your phone will help you to do that. However, charging in the middle of the forest could be challenging if the battery goes red. So, for the trip, you just need some basic gadgets to help you survive solo travelling.

  • Power bank – Now, your phone will never go red. But never forget to charge your power bank before you leave the hotel.
  • Earphones – Better than headsets for the bliss of music during your solo travel. It can easily fit in the bag.

What Else? 

No matter what you put inside your backpack, you should not forget the following items to carry on your solo trip.

  • A watch – In case your phone is dead, and you still need to keep track of time
  • A knifeSafety, emergency, and preparing your camping food, gathering fire fuel and setting up the camp or tent). Yes, this is multi-purpose.
  • Instant food – Some easy-to-cook food like instant noodles, chips, biscuits, dry fruits (for long travel or trek) etc. (Do not carry food which can get spoiled and destroy your bag and the stuffs in it).

Some Medicines:

Make sure you carry your medication if you are undergoing some treatment. Asthma pumps, migraine medications, diabetic tablets, or check-up kits are a few examples. Along with it, pack medicines for upset stomach, indigestion, headache, and fever. Since it is solo travel, these ones are of basic necessity.

      Я путешествую один редко но, как говорится, метко . В основном на лыжах. Беру с собой почти все перечисленное. На горных склонах такая красота-дух захватывает. Но одному немного страшновато- вдруг что случится! Обязательно фотографирую и рассылаю друзьям

    Solo travel is the best thing I ever experienced whilst travelling in Uk and Europe. It was my first encounter in the UK and never looked back. I like it that I get to plan my itenerary alone and get to go at my own pace. I enjoy engaging with locals regarding their religion, culture and customs. Travelling in a group will get you nowhere. Travel alone and enjoy

  19. Martin Owusu Bempa Reply

    is helpful and good tips planning solo can sometimes be stressful when you are not sure how long you are going to spend and the things important to you most to take along with, so these tips will help a lot but I will also add that you should always do a little research of the place you want to go and let family and friends know where you and off to, so that it will be easy to track you when no one here from you, for some days or weeks.

    Very nice information about solo travelling. Really it’s very helpful for those who has gonna want to solo trip 👍

  32. Lissette padilla Reply

    Yo siendo mamá aprendí estos tips a la dura 🤣 y ahora cuando salimos de vacaciones llevamos lo justo y lo necesario + los remedios en caso de urgencias. Pero me encanta saber que estoy en lo correcto con todo lo que llevo para las vacaciones en familia.

  33. To be honest, I’ve never traveled alone, I’ve been thinking about it for a while, it would be amazing to live a good experience alone, just me and my luggage, but when you have a family and you need to take care of them, it’s complicated to think about the individual, everything becomes collective ; but I don’t rule out the idea, who knows in the future? Anyway, I loved the tips, you have to think carefully about what to take so you don’t get lost.

  34. Que rico es acampar yo creo que es una manera de estar en linea con la naturaleza.

  35. Hudson Cruz Reply

    É irresistível viajar só, mas as descobertas e desafios são mais legais quando estamos com alguém na mesma jornada. A vida é uma viagem solitária do início até o fim.

  36. Lo de los medicamente es importantísimo, la gente no recuerda empacar y al viajar a otro país no siempre puedes comprarlo. y algunas bolsas resellables sirven mucho

  37. Ayo Fajuyitan Reply

    you never can tell how important these tips are until when you find yourself in a situation where any of the items listed would have to rescue you. A great tips even for corporate travelling.

    Really….?

    sounds like ….never on a trip in the world before…..!

    Where should i start…..?
    The Backpack must be a outdoorproof backpack…..waterproof..also for deep water, with a rescue light, steelhook, good to take it on for a long time, lockable, fireproof if it possible….military proof.
    What is essentially ….complete first aid metal/ water proof box , classic metal water bottle from the u s army with the soft cover for use it on your belt or everywhere.
    3x sets of long pants/shirts/underwaer,socks,1 pair softshoes, 1 pair leather boots and one you wear, rainsuite..and one extra for building a tent, a 3m rope cotton, knife/claw size is enough, metall waterproof watch with solar battery, nail set, toothbrash/creme, 3 bandanas in red/black/green, sunglasses and one extra, glow in the dark lights, some set to repair damage clothing, fishing hook aso, some small plastikbags, a military standard proof cellphone, solar battery pack, headphones….3x, usb sticks 3, connecting adapter for the cellphone, dogtails 2 sets with your name/bloodtype/soc number, leather kevla gloves 3x…more tips….?

  43. To the list of previously mentioned items needed for a solo trip, I would also add a first aid kit in compact (small) size, a traditional compass (in case you get lost in the wilderness), a paper map (plan) of the area. I would also recommend leaving a general (or detailed) breakdown of planned places and dates of stay with loved ones before such an expedition.
    P.s. Buon voyage!
