Don´t be! If you are a travel lover who doesn't have someone close to you who shares your passion, you're not alone. There are plenty of solo travelers out there who not only hit the road alone for long periods of time, but many have come to prefer it. And here are the reasons why...
You are the boss. You don't have to follow anyone else's rules. What better way to find yourself than to immerse yourself in a new cultures and experiences and make them all your own? Sleep late, skip breakfast, take an earlier train than planned, watch a sunset... No negotiating or compromising with anyone else
You will meet far more people when you are on your own since you won't be insulated as part of a group or even couple. You will be much more eager to meet travel buddies, team up with other travelers and generally reach out more in order to socialize.
Out of your comfort zone
You will learn about other people, sure, but also a ton of stuff about yourself. Find your inner strength, face your fears, change your thoughts, enjoy the unknown and live in the moment. The only person stopping you ... is you. Don´t miss a valuable chance for self-growth by being unwilling to leave your comfort zone.
Feeding your wanderlust
You will probably change your plans once you hear about that amazing waterfall, that incredible vantage point, the opportunity to bungee jump from a high bridge, or taste a special delicacy you will only find off the beaten path.
Vacations are fun because they're a break from real life—you don't have to worry about work, cooking dinner or getting the car fixed. Instead, you will get guilt-free Tuesday nights spent dancing with strangers. Just sit back and let the fun come to you.
Every solo traveler has their own reasons for going it alone – what's yours? You know, there's only one way to find out...
PS: Choose your destination wisely. Don´t travel to unsafe country and research a lot before you travel.
