We love Brie Burgetts lust for life and passion for travel!
An adventure seeker, globe trotter, and US Marine.
The last decade she has been traveling around the world exploring. As a bit of a thrill seeker, serving in the USMC has provided many opportunities across the globe to try new experiences in amazing (and some less so) destinations. There will never be a perfect opportunity to pursue any dreams.. it takes commitment to that goal or dream and putting yourself outside your comfort zone again and again.
So far she has visited: 6 Continents and 108 Countries.
Here are her five tips for solo traveling the world:
1) Try a new activity. One of the best ways to meet people and have a memorable experience is to try something new! Usually there are cheap tours offered that coordinate everything allowing you to relax and enjoy. From this photo of hiking around a volcano and soaking in the hot springs in Costa Rica to dune-bugging the hills in Portugal, I love trying something new!
2) Stay in places that you will meet other travelers. Even if hotels are reasonably priced, I typically stay in hostels or AirBnBs near the city center so that I will meet others and stay social. Not only do you save money if you want to travel a lot, but you have a built in friend group and loads of great recommendations for the city!
3) Go on a walking tour. Cities around the world offer free walking tours from locals or history buffs providing insights to the history and culture of the country!
4) Go to a popular local restaurant. Sample whatever cuisine it is famous for or is unique to the city! From fresh made sushi in Japan to dining off street cars in Argentina, I love sampling the best a city offers.
5) Enjoy the nightlife on a pub crawl. While there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy an evening without drinking, one of my favorite activities when I'm traveling solo is to go on a pub crawl. You typically meet others traveling alone or in small groups, you see parts of the city you never would have found otherwise, and make some great memories!
