Travelling solo can be a difficult proposition, even for people who have heavily prepared for their adventure. This doesn’t mean that the experience won’t be extremely valuable. Of course, the easiest way for anybody to travel, is to go to places where there isn’t a language barrier. Of course, for British people, this includes a large number of other countries, whom tend to speak English as a second language. It is always a safer bet to visit countries which are part of the common wealth, as well as ex members of the common wealth/British empire. Even if you would like to go somewhere other than these places, you can usually muddle through okay in most cosmopolitan areas with English. It is very important to understand how important social interaction is to you as well. If you are extroverted, sticking to countries and areas where English is largely spoken would probably be best. If, however, you are extroverted, there are many places to visit which can be very entertaining, even when there are a limited number of people to talk to.
In order to plan a holiday, you need to consider a lot of things, all of which will change by a case by case basis. For the purpose of planning, knowing the likelihood of a tourist being victimised while in the country in question is very important. For instance, when visiting Mexico, we know that in unsecured locations within the country, the chance of being kidnapped and ransomed is relatively high. Luckily, most of these complications created by the risks of the country will be have been covered by your typical travel insurance package, as well as the hotel offering higher than normal levels of security. But being aware of the risks when visiting a foreign land is very important, and understanding where the explicitly dangerous places are is just common sense. Investigating the security offered to tourists in the country in question is also important. In many poor countries, police are mistrusted, and for good reason. They will often have very low wages, which they supplement with their corrupt practices. In fact, in Mexico, police are known for routinely holding comparatively rich people on false charges, amounting to kidnapping. Being cautious in an unfamiliar land is very important for all tourists.
