Can I travel on my own?
Travelling alone is one of the best ways to get the most out of your time working abroad – but we understand it can be a nerve-racking experience. We’ve been there ourselves.
Summer Tribe is exactly as the name says. It’s a tribe. New friends. New family. New memories. With us, you’ll never be on your own.
Over 3/4 of working Brits abroad go solo. It can be a very exciting experience. On your own, you can leave the drama at home and discover much more about yourself, with even more opportunities at your feet and no-one holding you back.
Going to work abroad on your own is one of the best things you could ever do. Here’s why it’s a great thing to do:
More Mates, More Memories
At Summer Tribe, most people travel alone, but everyone arrives together in the same boat. You don’t have time to be nervous about meeting people. Before you know it, your friend list and followers will be firing quicker than the shots you’ve been throwing down on arrival.
You’ll be making memories for life with your new tribe. Stick together, work together and be there for each other. Without a doubt you’ll be making closer bonds than you ever thought possible. This is the first step into a new life, filled with exciting memories that couldn’t have happened without new people.
A Fresh Perspective
Be the most open version of yourself you can be. You’ll meet people from all over the world, each with their own story and way of living. This opens your mind to new experiences and culture. After all, you are in a new country, so use this time to soak-up as much as you can.
Some people who travel with friends or a partner can often get stuck in old behaviours from their hometown. When you join Summer Tribe, this is a new beginning. You’ll grow so much more when you’re forced out of your ways. Good things happen outside your comfort zone.
When you leave home to work abroad for the summer, you can be whoever you want. Learn new skills and discover hidden talents. Seasonal work is fast-paced, exhilarating and rewarding – and this means more opportunity.
The people you meet will shape your summer and your life ahead. Whichever line of work you find yourself in, there’ll be people there with the same high ambitions as yourself. Work hard and reap the rewards. Going solo means you’ll be saying yes a lot more than you would before, which means more staff nights out with plenty of networking possibilities.
Quick Tips For Travelling Solo
Get online first. Facebook groups and WhatsApp chats are a great way to start. You can join the Facebook group here.
Summer life begins at the airport, so talk to as many people as you can. You’ll likely find a Summer Tribe member on the early-season flights
You’re now an open book. Leave the hometown worries behind and start a new chapter
Save up beforehand if possible. It’s good to have at least another month’s rent behind you when you’re just starting out
Do everything you possibly can early-on to meet as many people as possible, but be mindful of the fact you’re here to work then play. Don’t burn the candle at both ends and lose your job/mind.
