5 questions with guest interviews

I’m Charley, a blogger from County Durham, UK! I am the owner and author of Undaunted Adventure, a travel blog where I share all my travel experiences, tips and tricks, and destination guides from being on the road! Thank you, Monique for asking me to collaborate with you and your amazing blog!


1.  Have you ever tried solo travelling? If yes, what is the best thing about it? If no, why not?


Oh my goodness I love solo travelling! My first solo trip was backpacking around New Zealand in 2018 and it was an incredible experience. For me, the best thing about solo travelling is just getting to travel on your own terms – being able to go where you want to go, do the things you want to do and just having the freedom to really personalise your trip! I also love the fact that solo travel grows you as a person; it stretches you and realigns your perspectives and you come home a completely different person.

2. What would you recommend to female solo travellers?


To be honest this is a great tip for any solo traveller, but as a female solo traveller myself this is something I always live by. Trust your instincts. If you’re in a new destination – or even some place you visit all the time – and you have a bad (or good) feeling about something, trust it. It doesn’t matter if you’re right or not, it’s far better to be safe than sorry.

3. What is the first thing you look forward to when you go to another country?


The first thing I always do when I arrive in a new place is to just go on a walk – get my bearings, pick some spots I might want to visit, and just make sure I know where I’m going. And to be honest, that is the thing I look forward to most. The initial excitement of looking round and discovering a place. I always take a free walking tour during my first day or two in a new country which is one of my favourite things to do!


4.  How would you define an adventure?


That’s a great question! For me, an adventure is something that pushes your boundaries, widens your perspective, and helps you to grow as a person. It doesn’t have to be heading to the middle of nowhere or doing something wild like a bungee jump – it can be something just as simple as a hike around your neighbourhood. Even the smallest activity can take you on the biggest adventure.


5. Have you ever fallen in love with a local from a country you visited? What happened when you left?


I’ve never fallen in love with a local! But I do have a close friend who has fallen in love on the road and they’ve made long distance work so well for them! She’s from the UK and he’s from South Africa – they’re still together 4 years later and travel between the two countries on a regular basis. For some people long distance works, and for others it doesn’t – you’ve just got to be open and honest with your significant other and be mindful of the challenges you’ll face. But it is worth the effort!



Take Care,
