When you are full of doubts about yourself, the road will feel difficult to walk.
Try to relax, the road can be very straight afterward.

The second time I had my solo trip, and the first day I traveled to France.
After taking the train from Rennes to Saint-Malo station.
At that time, I was relatively nervous as I had little experience in solo travel, and I didn’t know what the French were like.
I stepped out of the station tremblingly and stood at the front door looking at the city map shown at the station.
I didn’t buy a phone card at that time, so there was no internet coverage after I left the hotel.
Just after arriving at Saint-Malo Station, I didn’t have a map in hand, and I had to go to the tourist centre to get one.
Only relying on memory and intuition, I remembered the direction of the old town.
But along the way, there are not many tourists. Is Saint-Malo not attractive to tourists?
I began to wonder if I was lost.
I started thinking that the road seems to be endless, even if it is only a flat road.
After passing by a stone chair, I stopped and thought about the route.
I can’t get the answer at that moment, so I decided to ignore the doubts in my heart.
Going straight ahead, I could smell the fishy smell of seawater after a short walk and felt that the old town should be almost there.
Then I came to a pier full of oyster shells. And the city gate was behind the pier.
