Solo trips don’t mean you have to unplug. The AstridTravel team regularly posts while on the-go. Taking pictures and sharing your adventures with friends and family is part of the fun of travel. There’s even an app for solo travelers to connect with like-minded people. However, we also believe that travel is a great time to remove yourself from the world of the internet, and really be wherever is is you are in the world.
