Booking a solo trip to the land down under for the first time can be a daunting task. No worries, there. Dig into the list for tips on how to make the most out of your first time in the country:
Get a guidebook
Know as much as you can about the country before your scheduled visit. Get a few guidebooks that focus on Australian women’s travel. That should help you put together a good itinerary.
Check for apps you can download to help you navigate around the country a bit better, from ride-sharing apps, apps that tell you where to eat and apps that teach you all about the public transportation system. These can come in handy for when you get lost in your travels.
Pack for the weather
That’s good, sensible advice from The Culture Trip. The last thing you want is to pack up sleeveless shirts and flimsy dresses when you’re faced with unpredictable thunderstorms which are quite common in Australia even during the summer months. You can also expect light snow storms in April so you’ll want to pack clothes for local weather conditions.
Look for tips
Don’t limit yourself to online sources. Guidebooks about Australian women’s travel will probably information that’s much more detailed and comprehensive. That’s the kind of insider info you want, from tipping customs to getting discounts on transportation, shopping and meals.
Take tons of pictures
Whether it’s your first time to see a Koala or Kangaroos up close, you’ll want to take a lot of pictures to document your trip. Nope, they’re not just for your Facebook or Instagram accounts. Your photos are one of the few things you can look back to years down the road. Take as many as you can.
With these tips, planning for your solo trip to the land down under should be a whole lot of fun.
