Why do you travel? To relax, to get away from it all or to learn about other cultures, explore new countries and experience different traditions? Have you ever tried traveling alone? Here are a few reasons why we think you should try it this year:
1. Whatever you reason for traveling alone, one thing is certain: While you’re away, exploring the world, you’re bound to discover new things about yourself too. And that fact couldn’t be truer when traveling on your own.
2. Solo travel is about setting your own terms and not worrying about anyone else’s needs. It’s your time to please no one but yourself. Traveling alone doesn’t just push you out of your comfort zone; it gives you carte blanche to indulge your interests and passions, and get to know yourself in new and exciting ways.
3. Single travel means there is no compromise on what to see, where to eat, and what time to leave. When your schedule is your own, you are in charge to do exactly what you want. You don’t have to appease anyone, or worry that you are boring someone when lingering at a museum or strolling through the plaza. You can experience the world without someone else’s agenda influencing your trip.
4. The discovery of travel as a solo can be a much deeper experience – if well-planned, that is. In a world where money buys so many material things, traveling alone allows you the chance to invest in yourself and purchase an experience that enriches your mind and your soul.
