Having money saved to go travelling is essential no matter where you're travelling to or for how long. The amount of money you need obviously depends on a lot of things from where you're going, to where you'll be sleeping, the food you want to eat and the things you want to do. There isn't a specific amount of money I can say you'll need for your travels, as everyone's travels are so different. I can however hopefully help you out with some specific ways you can save money for travel.

The first time I ever travelled solo overseas I was 18 and fresh out of High School. While I had travelled overseas once before it was with my family. I will never forget the excitement and terror I felt as I walked down to my gate to fly to London, all by myself.

There are a few things I do though that help to make me feel a little less anxious as I travel by myself overseas, and some general tips for solo females travelling overseas.


6 Destinations On My Travel Wishlist

Travel has been the love of my life since I first left Australia by myself at 18 to spend a month travelling around Europe. The mixed emotions of fear and complete excitement as I walked to my gate to fly off to an unknown country, all by myself, I will never forget. Even today after travelling to various countries around the world I still get that same fear and excitement I got at 18, flying off into the unknown. 

The quote, "I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list" by Susan Sontag, really resonates with me and I'm sure most people who are obsessed with travelling. Below are the 6 destinations currently on my travel wishlist, but really there are so many more.

My sister and I went on a trip to London in 2015, and as crazy Harry Potter fans we had to go visit The Making of Harry Potter Warner Bros. Studio Tour in London. I loved the place and the next time I have more than a few days in London I'm definitely heading back. It was an amazing experience, and they have different experiences depending on when you go. When I was there they had all the animals from the Harry Potter movies, which was awesome. Below is some more information on The Making of Harry Potter Warner Bros. Studio Tour in London.
