Flying Solo Doesn’t Mean Being Lonely
One of the best ways to meet new people is actually traveling by yourself. The most interesting connections I have made, were while traveling by myself in South Korea, China and New Zealand. No doubt, this kind of experience doesn’t suit everyone, but, if you are the adventurous type… read along, you might find it worth worth your while.

A unique way to interact with like-minded locals while traveling is to attend a community gatherings. Here are a few to consider:
Creative Mornings is a free monthly event that is targeted at the creative industry. The events offer free light breakfast, an opportunity to mingle and a range of interesting speakers. They start early which means that by 10am you are free to go on your touristic activities . Creative Mornings take place in almost 50 cities around the world and numbers are raising. While the speakers are different in each city, all events shares the same monthly theme. We love their funny ice breaker name tags they are a great tool to pick the person to start a conversation with. The popularity of the events is growing and tickets are limited so make sure you don’t miss out and book early. For more info and booking, visit http://www.creativemornings.com/
Meetup is a website dedicated for any kind of group gathering you can imagine. And if you don’t find what you were looking for – you can start your own group. Events’ frequency and costs is varied so check in advance when the next Meetup is. Find your group at: http://www.meetup.com/ or http://australia.meetup.com/
TedX are independently orgenised Ted events. The events’ format could be either showing videos from Ted events or creating a program in the same Ted format with local speakers. Some cities has more than one TedX gathering. To learn more and watch great videos of past speakers, just google TedX and the city you would travel to or visit https://www.ted.com/tedx
