Solo traveling is not as easy as some make it sound, or look. If you find yourself scrolling through your friend’s solo trip pictures and thinking “why would they go alone?” or “How did they get the courage to do that?” I’m here to bring an answer to your questions.
There are many reasons why someone may travel alone- whether it is to see family abroad, they must go on a business trip, or now if now during the COVID era, is their only safe option. But the real question is not why they do it, it’s why YOU should!
Here are five reasons why some may say they have and continue to go alone on trips, and why we definitely think you should go on a solo vacation at least once in your life:
1. You Are Capable
You may hear dozens of excuses from your friends and family you so dearly want going with you-- But deciding to go in your own solitude and experience an amazing destination alone can be empowering. And let’s be honest, most of the time we’re stronger than we think we are!
2. To Challenge Yourself
Going on vacation by yourself will be challenging, but it will also bring you many benefits. Solo traveling will bring balance to your life whether you have someone to travel with or not. It will be more about choosing to experience something alone rather than waiting for your friends to cancel.
3. More “ME” Time
We all have those days when we’re ready to be on our own. We just want to enjoy our solitude and do most of our favorite things without any responsibility for any other routine things in our days. Traveling solo is the perfect solution for this predicament! You will be inspired to enjoy your favorite book, dance freely on the most colorful streets of your destination, write every detail of your encounters in a journal, or even sleep in with the sound of the beach waves. You will for sure, love your own company.
As a solo traveler, you won't have to attend excursions you’re not interested in, you can try any place you want without compromising anyone, or worrying about what they believe will be fun-- You will be full of relief making all of the decisions for the entire trip, and we will for sure be ready to help you make those decisions.
5. To Find Yourself
Traveling on your own can be one of the most thrilling experiences in your life, and you may meet some great people on the way, but every single time you go on a solo trip, you will also meet yourself once again. There are many things we’re often still figuring out about ourselves, such as which foods we like, or why a certain movie makes us upset. Spending time alone experiencing a different culture will set you free without the expectations around you that define you on a daily basis. Once abroad alone, you can be whatever version of yourself you want to be!
Once you start solo trips, you’ll look forward to every trip being a solo one! Many travelers I’ve met over time consider themselves lucky to be able to have such an amazing experience.
