So, I naturally want to know everything I can about what it’s like to solo travel. What to expect, how to prepare, and any other advice from other solo travelers out there. I speak very minimal Spanish, so that is going to be a barrier. I can literally get by to order food/drinks and a very, very basic conversation, but anything past that…I’m screwed. I tried Duolingo and I can talk about apples and bread all day, but I have a feeling that won’t do me too much good.
This weekend, I reached out to one of my friends and asked if she wanted to spontaneously book a trip for spring break and I was looking at Havana. Within 45 minutes, we had our flights booked and our seats picked out next to each other. The next morning she had to sadly tell me that she confused work dates and couldn’t go anymore. BUT, I’m not cancelling and will be taking my first solo trip.
