I always wonder: Is solo-travel the ‘true’ form of traveling? Why is there such a big fuss about a person not being a traveler/wanderer/nomad if he hasn’t traveled alone? I love traveling alone! There is a certain charm to traveling alone – you definitely talk to a lot more local people, other travellers, strangers, you learn a lot about the place, its heritage, interesting tidbits, trivia – the ‘personality’ of the place. Though you might miss your friends or family, at least you’ll get time to miss them.
