Traveling can be the most exhilarating and freeing experience. But sometimes, even when you really want to pursue a dream or step out into the unknown, something creeps into your mind and holds you back. If you’re hesitant to take the leap and go on a solo trip or even get on a plane, you might be dealing with minor or even severe anxiety when traveling. The most important thing to recognize is that you’re definitely not alone in this.

An Epic New Travel Blog Welcome to Six & The City
When I look back on my experiences traversing the globe, I realize my appetite for solo travel started long before I was conscious of it. As a strong-willed 14-year-old, I didn’t think twice as I waved goodbye to my parents in Munich and boarded a plane headed to Florence. I couldn’t wait to spend my summer in Italy learning Italian and immersing myself in the Italian culture. Rather than feeling apprehensive, I was invigorated by the idea of living with a host family who did not share the same language as me. Even then, I think I knew deep down that the best way to truly experience something was to dive in head-first. Little did I know a path filled with travel adventures (and now a travel blog!) was about to unfold.
