ARE YOU AFRAID TO TRAVEL SOLO?
Traveling solo often depends on your personal lifestyle and sometimes are rejected because of fear. First, let’s have a look at lifestyle. Solo travel is ideal for those that are single, independent-minded, students, professionals, all ages (that can legally travel without parents). If you still have your independence or truly need to break away from the norm, then why not have this wonderful experience to be one with yourself in the midst of exploration.
Exploration is almost two-fold as this is a chance for self-discovery as well as exploration of an unknown or well-known land (based on where you go). Travelling solo gives us the opportunity to take a step back from our daily reality and learn something new whether it be in relation to yourself and most certainly learning about a new environment and culture. It is a beautiful experience to learn and grow on your own terms somewhere completely new.
There is no judgment during solo travel time since you are indeed on your own. You don’t need to worry about following a set agenda or catering to someone else’s tastes, preferences, etc. Solo travel is one of the few times in life that you can satisfy your sense of adventure and setup your own plans. There is no need for a second voice of approval or any time constraints as a solo traveller.
All in all, if you want to discover more about yourself away from the “real world” and challenge yourself by taking on a new location, then solo travel if for you. If you enjoy the learning process and are curious about other cultures, cuisine, architecture, customs, etc, then solo travel is for you. Like to control your plans for a change without limitations, then you know the drill…get going and travel solo!
