How To Travel Alone on HowcastDon’t let the lack of a traveling companion stop you from seeing the world. Sometimes it’s more fun to explore on your own.别让缺少旅行伴侣妨碍你看世界。有时候自己去探索更有意思。Step 1: Plan aheadResearch your travel destination. Though spontaneity is one of the joys of solo travel, knowing a bit about where you’re going is key when you don’t have someone along to help figure out things like transportation. Pick a place that’s not too remote or couples-oriented.第一步: 提前计划搜索你的旅游目的地。虽然随其自然也是旅行的乐趣,但是知道你要前往的目的地的信息业很重要,尤其是当你没有人告诉你例如交通这样的事。选择一个不太遥远的地方或是东方往返旅行。TiP:Less developed countries tend to be good places to meet other solo travelers.小贴士:欠发达的国家是能遇到其他独自旅行者的好地方。Step 2: Get a roomConsider your hotel options. Less lavish accommodations are more likely to attract other single travelers who, like you, don’t have someone to split the cost of a room. On the other hand, you may feel safer in a higher-end hotel. Whatever you decide, make sure to reserve a room for your first night in town, when you’re apt to be jet-lagged and disoriented.第二步:预定房间考虑选择旅馆。不太奢侈的住所更容易吸引像你一样没人分担房费的旅行者。另一方面来说,在好的旅馆你会感觉到安全。无论你选择哪个,一定要在你到达小镇的第一晚,你预定好房间,那时你容易颠倒时差而且容易迷路。Step 3: Travel lightPack only as much as you can easily carry by yourself — preferably in one carry-on bag to minimize the risk of lost luggage. Leave expensive jewelry at home.第三步:轻装旅行只选些能随身携带的物品——最好能装在便携袋中来捡来丢失行李的风险。将贵重的首饰留在家里。Step 4: Stay in touchLeave your itinerary — or at least a general idea of where you’ll be — with a few loved ones. Take a copy of your passport with you, and leave them a copy as well as your credit cards numbers. E-mail yourself numbers to call if your cards are lost or stolen. If you’re traveling abroad, make sure your cell phone has international service.第四步:保持联系把留下你的旅行线路或是大体去的位置告诉你的朋友。带护照的复印件,把信用卡号也复印下。将你的卡号发到手机上,以防信用卡丢失或是被偷。如果你去国外旅行,要确保你的手机有国际务。Step 5: Blend inBlend in with your surroundings. If you’re in a foreign country, memorize a few key phrases and dress according to local fashion. Consider buying a few items that will help you look like a native.第五步:入地随俗入地随俗。如果你在国外,要记住一些重要的语言并按当地的习惯穿衣。可以买一些小物品,它们会让你看上去更像当地人。Step 6: Take a tourTake a walking tour, a cooking class, or some other activity; they’re great ways to meet other travelers. Consult a newspaper about local events, or ask your hotel to help you make arrangements.第六步:开始旅行开始徒步旅行,或参加厨艺培训或其他活动。这些都是能遇到旅行者的好途径。可以参阅当地的报纸或是让旅馆来帮你安排。Step 7: Eat outDon’t be shy about going to restaurants by yourself and chatting with other diners and waitstaff; a great way to do that is by eating at the bar. Having breakfast at your hotel and snacking at outdoor cafes are also conducive to making friends while munching.第七步:不要因为害羞而不去餐馆并和其他进残忍或是务员聊天。去酒吧吃饭也是种好途径。在旅馆吃早饭和在室外小餐馆吃小吃也是交朋友的好朋友。Tip:Though it’s tempting to hide behind a book or scribble in a journal, you’re more approachable if you forgo those things.小贴士:虽然看书或是写旅行日志看起来很诱人,但是如果你不做这些事你会感觉更自然。Step 8: Stay safeStay safe. Write notes and directions on index cards before you leave your hotel; if you must take out a map, do it discreetly. Avoid isolated areas and don’t tell strangers you’re traveling alone. Above all, trust your instincts. If something feels wrong, get out of the situation.第八步:注意安全注意安全。在离开旅馆前要在索引卡片晌写下便条和你去的方位。如果你需要拿出地图来查看,要谨慎。不要去荒无人烟的区域,不要告诉别人你是在独自旅行。总之,要凭你的直觉。如果感觉不对景,要尽快脱身。 Article/201009/114902
