Eating out alone is something I would never do at home. However, life as a solo traveller means that I have had to get used to it. Unless I forever wanted to find a friend, eat at my accommodation or make a packed lunch, I have had to toughen up. Now it is second nature when travelling but would I be as confident doing it at home? No!
I know that there is always a chance that you are going to be robbed when travelling. You might look like an easy target, a foreigner, lost or disorientated in a strange country, it is difficult to stay safe. Well, imagine my surprise when I was running down the road in Berlin after the thief who had just snatched my phone out of my hand (you can read all about it HERE). It dawned on me the importance to share travel safety tips so you, too, can learn from my experience and prevent it from happening.
I wanted to be able to share how to travel safely without being scared to go anywhere. Being robbed really knocks your confidence and I found myself being on edge all the time that I actually left Berlin pretty soon after. It was my third time there, but I needed to move past this shock so that next time I go to Berlin, I can continue to enjoy the relaxed laid back city it is.
Imagine a place full of homes cut out of the rocks. A place where people still live in caves. It sounds like I have gone back to the time of cavemen! But here I am in Cappadocia in the highlands of Turkey where some of the nicest hotels are within a cave. This is just one of many things on the list of what to do in Cappadocia, Turkey.
Welcome to a land that feels like you are in the Flintstones.
