:thumbsup: Why not? I enjoyed it much much more than going with group of friends:bsmilie:
It's an experience of literally living in your own world e.g wake up anytime, sleep anytime, eat anything, eat anytime, go anywhere as long as you feel like it. More importantly, you can take your own sweet time to take photos
almost every relatively developed city is the same, when it comes to the crunch
same rules apply, i won't worry too much about "not knowing any place well", some of my best travel memories involve walking on city outskirts feeling lost, or just finding a place i wanted to get to and walking thrice as long on a beach as i thought i would.
I have tried. Was in Amsterdam, Belgium, London for solo backpacking. Some tips - if you going Europe, stay in hostel is cheap and safe. However... while the initial thoughts of solo backpacking is exciting and adventurous, that of a real man stuff... you will find that you rather have companions --- Why??? Esp when you see something beautiful, you wish you can share with someone there and then. Know what I mean.
Also, always on the lookout for safety - esp.. be very careful with your belongings esp. wallets etc and know where's the nearest police station, just in case.
As for me.. its once and DONE. I will never go solo backpacking again. I would rather have someone share the beautiful things in life. Its rather lonesome.
Hope that helps. Better tips ------------ Get friends along.
