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.
Dream about the big things, and enjoy every moment of the little things.
“When I turned 18, I said goodbye to Munich and headed out to see the world on my own terms. At 21, a wrong turn on a trip in Italy ended in an engagement to the most amazing Italian man. We have the happiest, most special marriage. I’m lucky to still be able to travel the world mostly solo as his business requires him to spend much of his time working in Bulgaria.”
“One of my favorite travel wardrobe staples are my silk scarves. I don’t take any trips without a few of them in my suitcase, regardless of the season or climate in the destination. They are a simple way to show off your personal style while protecting you from the A/C or the outdoor elements. Plus, they take up virtually no space in your luggage!”
