So, I am traveling alone for the first time next month and I am a little shy but would love to make some new friends while traveling. Any tips on how to meet new people in a strange city?

Stay in a hostel

Check the reviews on Hostelworld to see typical age of guests. If all 18 yo’s I’d be uncomfortable but not all hostels are party hostels like that.

Yea, set a goal that you will initiate a conversation with __ stranger(s) per day. Most people are super willing to talk but most are not initiators.

Both myself & the CEO of my company have tried contacting the AMS there multiple times with no response. Sort of stuck in limbo. Any advice?

My best friend took a year off work and just traveled around South America with just a backpack and duffle bag of essentials. He spent about $5 to $10 a night at local hostels and food costs cheaper at local restaurants and shops. He spent roughly $500 a month on room and board. Aside from activities like bungee jumping or live sports events, most of the other activities costs little to nothing. Debating on saving up and just escape for a bit just like that.
