I travel solo through Bulgaria.
I can help you prepare for your (solo) trip in Eastern Europe as well!
From being a small child, I have been intrigued by Eastern Europe. It's where I feel at home. I spent years traveling through remote corners and now live in Bulgaria. Many are unsure if they can travel to Eastern Europe alone. I can convince you of exactly why you should come!
I grew to enjoy solo travel and it has now become my standard. I help travelers make the step to go solo. Check out my blog posts, where you find some of my thoughts on solo travel.
Traveling alone can be a very rewarding experience. It helps you reflect on your life and you get a whole new perspective on the world. Besides, having the freedom to do what you want is just very exciting.
For this reason, I would suggest any traveler to go solo at least once. Just to see how it feels. It really matters. It's important to know how to be alone and there's no better way than to face the ultimate test - being alone on a trip. You'll look back on some good lessons in life, no matter where you go. Solo travel in Eastern Europe is not too hard but does give you the sense of adventure. For me, that balance is good.
I feel safe in these countries, taking the usual precautions of course. Besides, getting around with public transport is affordable and there are many good places to stay. The people I meet on the road have always been very helpful, which really helps when I found myself lost somewhere.
