Why travel alone to papua ?
Solo travel can be the ultimate in self-indulgence; you can rest when you want and pour it on when you’re feeling ambitious. Another benefit is that your mistakes are your own, and your triumphs all the more exciting. There’s no worrying that your insistence on trekking all the way across town to a museum that was closed ruined your partner’s day; it’s your own day to salvage or chalk up to a learning experience.
Perhaps the foremost concern of the solo or single traveler is safety. Without a companion to watch your back, you are more vulnerable to criminals and scam artists, as well as simple health worries. But the saying “safety in numbers” isn’t necessarily true – a solo traveler can blend in more easily than a group, and not drawing attention to yourself as a tourist is one way to stay secure. Here are a few tips:
Know how long it takes and how much it costs to get from the airport to your hotel or to the city center. Solo travelers are more likely to be “taken for a ride,” so ask the taxi driver how much it will cost before you leave. If it’s considerably different from what you know to be true, take a different cab.
- Find out if hotels at your destination are open late.
- Be your own best counsel; if it doesn’t feel right, don’t do it.
- Carry good identification, in more than one place.
- Keep to open and public places, especially at night.
- Exude confidence and walk purposefully.
- Avoid appearing like a tourist.
- Don’t draw attention to yourself by wearing flashy clothes or jewelry.
- Lie a little. Not only can you invent your own persona or history, but you can also make your life easier with little white lies. When asking directions, don’t let on that you are alone: “Can you direct me to the museum? I have to meet a friend there at 12:00 pm.”
- Check your maps and transportation schedules before leaving your hotel/rental car/tourist office. A solo traveler poring over maps can be a mark for unsavory types.
- Leave a copy of your itinerary with a friend or family member at home, and stay in touch regularly via phone or e-mail if it is possible.
- While on the car call some one you have known before.
- that’s all.
