Perhaps the least-liked travel tip of all, especially when wandering solo, is to save the social media sharing until after your trip has wrapped up. This might not be a popular choice, but it is certainly the safest bet for keeping yourself secure while navigating solo travel in Detroit or anywhere else in the world.
Solo Travel Tip #3: Resist the urge to share in real-time on social media.
If we’ve learned anything fruitful from Kim Kardashian, it’s this travel tip right here. The moment you share your travel experience in real-time on social media, you’re revealing so much more to anyone, anywhere – including your location, making it quite easy to track where you are (and how to get there when you’re there).
No one wants unwanted, unwelcome visitors showing up at their hotel. Not even Kim K in Paris.
Plus, when you are using public wifi, nothing is secure, including what you post online despite the illusion of safety with a “private” social media account. Save your social sharing spree for when you have returned home. This gives you a chance to relive your adventure all over again!
