How I Travel Alone

I’m so funny when I travel alone. I don’t like to talk to people, even cashiers at stores, because I don’t like to be immediately labeled as a foreigner. Logically in my head I know I already look different because of my style and the backpack, but I still like to seem local. I don’t like asking for directions, but I don’t like getting a map out in public. Usually I’ll find a corner bench or a bathroom and I’ll do my traveling research there. I also feel dumb asking people to take a photo for me, so sometimes I just take a photo of the touristy object and sometimes I’ll try to put myself in it.
