Myths about traveling alone

You are considering traveling alone. Solo. Just you and the locals. However, you hear so many things about traveling alone. Some might be the truth, while others might be just a bunch of lies. How do you know that it is all just myths and that you don’t need to worry about traveling alone? These are the myths that you should never belief about traveling solo.

It isn’t safe to travel alone

It isn’t safe to travel alone. No matter what country you are traveling. You will always be at risk. This isn’t really the truth. Yes, there are some countries that are dangerous to travel to. Even, if you aren’t traveling alone.

But, there are some great countries and destinations where you can travel to, no matter what. The secret here is to do research about your planned destination and make sure that it will be safe for travel. But, in general, there aren’t any problems with traveling alone. You may even want to consider keeping company with Apple‘s own Siri if you’re a weirdo.

You will feel lonely

You don’t know anyone. You are feeling lonely while you are traveling. This is something that many people are worried about. If you have the right personality, you will not have anything to worry about. Most locals are really friendly and you will make friends in no time.

You might even make friends with someone that is traveling the same route as you. By starting conversations with locals and tourists, you will never feel lonely while you are traveling solo. However, it will depend on you at the end of the day.

It can be too expensive

When you are traveling with someone, the expenses can be shared between you. Making the costs a lot cheaper than when each one buys for himself. This is why people think that traveling solo is going to be expensive.

This isn’t really the case. Yes, you are paying everything by yourself, but you don’t need to budget for two or three people. It is just you, so you can make sure that you choose the cheaper options. From food and drinks to entertainment.

If you believe in these myths, you will never be able to consider traveling alone. You will not be able to enjoy your time and to get away from everyone else. These are all myths. You can travel alone, safely. You can make friends and will not feel lonely. And, it won’t be as expensive as what you might think. However, the entire trip will depend on your personality and how great you are communicating with strangers. …

Why American Food Is Still Awesome

The rise of globalization has increased the awareness of local cuisines from all over the world. And while cuisines from different countries get respect for all the right reasons, food made from the United States of America don’t get most foodies excited. In fact, when most people talk about American food, they talk about it negatively. In spite of this, there are many reasons why American cuisine deserves to be appreciated for what it is. Here are some of the reasons from my pal at

1. Generous servings- One of the most endearing (and sometimes heavily criticized aspects) of American food is their generous servings. As much as they emphasize quality, Americans also put a premium on quantity; after all, Americans love their food too! Almost always, Amercian meals are served big, so you won’t go out of your table not stuffed. While some see it as a negative (some think it’s too many), I think the generous servings of American food should be seen as a positive.  

2. A fusion of multiple cultural backgrounds- It’s hard to pinpoint what defines American food because the country’s cuisine is a product of both local and international influences. Some locally made delicacies such as fruit pies, mac and cheese, burgers, and barbecue are spectacularly made. They also gave some international favorites such as pizza a unique American twist. To make things even more interesting, some of their dishes may vary depending on which region it is produced. Take for example the barbecue, where different states/regions have their own take of making one.

3. Puts emphasis on breakfast- While much has been said about American cuisine, even foreigners cannot complain about American breakfasts. They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and Americans certainly take it by heart. Breakfast dishes in the USA is the works; it’s a no-holds barred plate containing all the essentials you need to get by the rest of the day: protein, calories, vitamins, and a lot of love and comfort.

4. It is simple yet complex- The complexity of American cuisine is criminally underrated. Some may criticize American food as merely some ingredients thrown together with a little bit or a lot of sauce, but real American food goes beyond what you see in fast food chains. The mix of ingredients found in a lot of American dishes is incredible, and the end result is more often than not spectacular. Also, different cities, communities, and families have a different take on these dishes, and they are more often than not great in their own way. There is more to American food than just fast food. I believe that it deserves more respect in the global stage than how it’s being received right now. …
