I am alright with solo travel but I have some extensive travel plans coming up and for parts it would be nice to spend it with someone to talk to and experience together. I don't know that I would find anyone at a hostel the day before, and I don't want to pay someone to join me. Also for my safety as a female solo traveler, I would prefer other women to avoid men wanting more, which I am just not interested in.
When you go to a place you can meet people to do stuff nearby for sure, but like I want to take the ferry from Helsinki to Stockholm and it's an all day overnight trip. I took an overnight ferry before from Korea to Japan and I was utterly alone, staff in Japan even asked where my boyfriend was like I shouldn't be alone.
How can I find another traveler to hang out with on this boat?
