Selfie Portraits.

I traveled to Oahu solo once, and it was probably my second best trip there. My last solo trip was a little different. After much debate and hesitation, I booked a flight to Kauai. Although it’s still Hawaii, it’s one of their more rural islands with less tourists and city life so I envisioned myself stranded on a dirt road with a dead cell phone and no gas. Paranoid much? Always.

Not that I thought Kauai was riddled with crime, I’m just a Virgo and worrying is what we do. I wondered if I would get lost. If I would get robbed. If I would get raped. If I would fall off a cliff hiking. But most of all, I wondered WHO THE HELL WAS GOING TO TAKE MY PICTURES? 

Thus, I made a few purchases and borrowed a few devices from friends to make sure I had all my solo “Do it For the ‘Gram” necessities. Click after the jump to make sure your next solo trip will never look like one.

Portable charger: It might seem a bit much to carry around both a car charger AND a portable charger, but trust me you won’t regret it. Especially if you have a bunk phone like mine that is nearing the end of it’s time and goes from 30% to 5% in a single text message. And if I wasn’t traveling by myself, I wouldn’t have cared. I bought this one specifically after Steph recommended it saying it charges your phone up to three times before having to charge the actual battery back. Buy yours HERE.
