Recently I was speaking to a friend about the pros and cons of being single. The pros being that you can be an independent woh-man who can go everywhere without needing someone to check up on you, the negatives being that you don’t have anyone to put suncream on your back when we’re blessed with hot, sunny days. That got me thinking about the similarities between being single and travelling alone – I mean, it’s not entirely different let’s be honest here, but I guess it’s a lot easier to ask a fellow backpacker by the pool to get their hands creamy then it is to ask Paul the Gardener. I digress. Here are, what I believe to be, the TOP 5 annoying things about travelling solo.
