Hey Joshua! Great to hear from you! Personally I loved traveling alone. You meet so many more people than if you were with another person. And it’s a great sense of accomplishment to know that you can do it alone. But honestly, whether it’s locals or other travelers, you’ll rarely ever be alone. If you make it to Ethiopia, let me know.
Hey Joshua, I’m an American 31 year old guy and I just got back from traveling through 6 African countries. I had the best time man. And if you stay at backpacker resorts and lodges, you’ll meet plenty of people.
