I was scared, restless, far away from my home and waiting eagerly for my destination. This was the time when I started travelling alone. Whenever I remember that day, I feel proud and more independent as a person
I love travelling and exploring the nature. And one thing that I have learned is you are the only companion you can have with you. Travelling alone has many perils but it gives you immense pleasure and perks.
So if you are planning to go on a solo trip, don't just think, pack your things and get started. Below are some exciting reasons why one should experience solo trip at least once in a year.
Discover More About Yourself:
Travelling alone is the best option to know yourself, as it helps you to discover more about yourself. Travelling solo offers you free time and space you needed that is not possible on normal daily routine. You don't have to be a great traveler; even walking on the road alone will give you the chance to enjoy your own company.
Makes You Strong and Independent:
Travelling alone definitely makes you strong and independent. This is because of there is nobody to help you or to assist you. You are your own boss; you have all the freedom to do anything you like at any point of time. You do not have to stick to other's plan, you can create your own perfect dream travel journey.
Make New Friends, Trust Strangers:
Traveling alone can be most satisfying thing due to the great people you will meet. However, you should be cautious while traveling solo. It enables you to speak directly with locals and opens you up. Also, it is the great way to make new friends and explore great knowledge about the place.
Makes you Better Traveler:
Travelling alone let you observe people, place, and culture around you. This makes you more compassionate and a better person. Additionally, you will notice that you have become kinder and patient in nature.
Learn To Live With Less:
All you need is a backpack that can provide you with all the happiness and satisfaction. Everyone has unusual spending habits when it comes to travel. While travelling solo, it becomes much easier to figure out how much budget you need and on the other hand you can plan your journey accordingly.
Boosts Your Confidence:
When you travel alone you are on your own, you are the only one who has to take all the decisions and you have to solve all your problems. All these activities make you smarter and a stronger person. It is like challenging yourself and when you conquer the challenge you feel full of confidence. Additionally, it will enhance your decision making and time management skills.
No Drama at All:
When you travel with your travel buddies, all of you have different plans and thinking. Most often you find that you or your friends are compromising on something. This leads the entire trip in vain and it can be miserable. On the other hand, when you travel alone you find that there is no argument or fight.
Expect the Unexpected:
You will find unexpected challenges, feelings and emotions while travelling alone. You will experience another part of the same world. You don't live on perceptions anymore. Now you see life through another set of eyes.
