BE FRIENDLY & CONFIDENT
When you travel its obvious everyone is stranger to you until and unless you make any effort for an interaction, through this you might get to know an awesome traveler or a person who prefers to travel aimlessly. If you feel uncomfortable during the interaction just walk away. It’s totally okay to be rude when safety is concerned. But at the same time there are certain woman traveler groups who arrange travel trips for women groups to add more fun and make your journey more enjoyable and exciting .
