Tips for a single woman traveller, who loves to explore destinations all alone:
1 Safety comes first: Your safety is in your hand so be prepared, be self-reliant and don’t depend on strangers. Always carry basic things while you are travelling like a map, a guide book, packed food, a water bottle and a first aid box etc.
2 Be friendly and confident: When you travel its obvious everyone is a stranger to you until and unless you make any effort for an interaction, through this you might get to know an awesome traveller or a person who prefers to travel aimlessly. If you feel uncomfortable during the interaction just walk away. It’s totally okay to be rude when safety is concerned.
3 Travel light: Be a smart traveller, pack light and don’t get burdened by unnecessary luggage which can turn out to be a super experience spoiler. Instead opt for a backpack and bon voyage!
4 Knowledge about the destination: Gather all the information about your destination as much as you can, it’s beneficial to stay updated. Be sure and give a quick review of cultural background; it will be an added convenience throughout your trip.

Sorting things will help you to spend more time exploring things, places and culture of the particular place. Without wasting much of time in commuting. It will eventually reflect how aware a traveller you are.
