I want to stress that however much people bang on about their gap year and travelling around the world on their own, solo travel doesn’t have to be this long-winded month at a time affair. Solo travel can be as little as a weekend away by yourself. It’s simply about making time for yourself and enjoying exactly what you want.
During traveling I've seen it all, the good and the bad, beautiful and the worst but it never stopped me from doing what i wanted to do. I had my adventurous and misadventures but i took it as lessons. I learned more during my travels than my entire life of 24 years. Here I am sharing some of the best things that i learned during my travels.
One of the greatest benefits I’ve found while travelling solo is the feeling of independence. Sure, it sounds whimsical and the stuff of Instagram quotes, but being by myself, doing exactly what I have chosen that day, is powerful. Plus, having a glass of wine in a bar by myself just makes me feel like me.
When traveling solo, independence isn’t something I tried to attain; it’s just something that happened naturally. There is nobody there to rely on for money, to watch my luggage when I go to the bathroom or to show me the way when I get lost. It’s all up to me. And more I figured these things out, more independent I became.
