TRAVELLING ALONE AND DEFEATING YOUR LONELINESS
Communiquer avec ses proches pour contrer la solitude en voyage

A major inconvenience when traveling alone is the feeling of loneliness generally felt after the period of wonder. This period of about 3 weeks varies according to the personality of the traveler. How to chase the loneliness?

Adaptation
Sometimes, having news from our family and friends by telephone can turn you upside down. This feeling that one can have can be difficult for another. If living with this difficult feeling is hard, don’t worry, it’s a normal feeling. You are simply going though the phase of adaptation and your feelings will be more stable with time.

Appease your loneliness

To appease the consequences of your loneliness, there are some simple tricks. Actually, it is important to occupy your mind! First, go out! To stay in your room or in your tent is not the solution. Have a hobby. Why not start taking photos? Go for a walk and find interesting subjects. Live the adventure, and by occupying yourself with a hobby it also helps you to discover other options. Photography also helps you to know more about the country you’re visiting and you also can bring back some souvenirs.

Go to the pool to swim. Take the opportunity to discuss with the local people. If you have lots of contacts with the local people, your trip will be more pleasant. Youth hostels are excellent places to know other travelers from around the globe. These types of housings organize regularly some activities for you. Don’t hesitate to participate.

Even with this temporary feeling, sometimes hard to support, it helps you to develop yourself. Don’t forget, it’s when you cope well with hardship that you grow as a person.
