So Why Do You Travel Alone? 7 Reasons

by dee

You want to explore, but your friends don’t have the time, money, or simply don’t share your enthusiasm for exploring the globe. So, what exactly are you supposed to do? Stay at home or travel alone, wait for one of them to change their minds, or go regardless?

While it can seem to be a frightening idea, women are increasingly traveling alone, and there has never been a better time to just get up and do it. If all of your mates are married and your wife despises flying, there’s nothing stopping you from traveling solo.

So, what’s the point of going it alone?

Women travel for a variety of reasons, including the desire to spend time alone, the desire to be brave, the desire to set their own schedule, and the desire to meet new people while doing so.

Traveling solo isn’t just about the outward journey of going from point A to point B; it’s all about inner exploration, because when you’re isolated in the middle of nowhere with no one to help you sort things out, you truly get to know yourself inside out. When you spend hours contemplating life on the track, you’ll discover what truly makes you tick, conquer your doubts, and discover what truly makes you happy.

Traveling is good for the soul and helps you to reconnect with yourself, regardless of the age or point of life. It puts things in perspective and helps you enjoy the little things (like hot water), and you’ll quickly see what you can do without and how many pairs of shoes you actually need. It will teach you to be self-sufficient and to prioritize your needs. You’ll have to be so resourceful that you’ll surprise yourself. You’ll quickly see what matters and what doesn’t, and you’ll return with a fresh outlook on life, more positive relationships, and maybe even a few intimate ones.

Travel is ageless, regardless of how old you think you are, and it provides you with an insight about the world that you will never get from a textbook. You’ll hear about the country’s roots and customs, as well as immerse yourself in the local community, and the more you learn, the more you’ll begin to view the world in a very different light from the picture shown.

You’ll quickly overcome any fears you have of approaching random strangers when you travel alone. Travelers form one large group, and you’ll be shocked by how convenient it is to meet new people. Even if you’re an introvert, travel will push you out of your comfort zone and force you to interact with people from all walks of life, races, and ages, allowing you to create your own global couch-surfing network.

If you have to be the most self-assured human on the planet? Certainly not. Travellers come in all shapes and sizes; shy, funny, noisy, or just strange. The great thing about traveling alone is that you have the opportunity to reinvent yourself; you can describe yourself, be who you want to be, and no one will know. If you leave as a timid wallflower, you will return with more self-confidence than you ever imagined and ready to take on the world – literally!

You’ll experience the joy of being at ease with your own skin, which is priceless in and of itself. Soon, you’ll be stretching the limits, doing new things, and living in ways you never imagined. What’s even better? You’ll have so much flexibility when traveling alone that you’ll be able to change your schedule at the last minute, linger later if you want to, or go on a mini-adventure with the girls you met the night before. You are completely free to do whatever you want!

In reality, once you’ve experienced solo travel, you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it sooner!

What if you’ve never been on a trip before?

Traveling alone to a foreign country for the first time may seem intimidating, but it isn’t nearly as bad as you would imagine. Many people chose to fly alone for a number of reasons, the most important of which has to be the right to go anywhere they want and meet whoever they want.

Perhaps you’ve been considering it for a while and just need the extra boost to get started.

Here are a few compelling reasons to do so:

You get the impression that you are trapped in a rut.
You have a friend who lives in another country who keeps inviting you to meet them.
You’ve recently been laid off.
You want to visit all seven of the world’s wonders.
You’ve been given a windfall and would rather use it to make fresh memories.
You’ve just broken up with your girlfriend.
You want to travel around the globe following the heat.

There are a variety of reasons to take advantage of this chance. The most difficult aspect of solo travel is deciding to do it..

Solo travel broadens the mind and allows you to take each day as it comes, loving each moment without worrying about the next. It encourages you to simply be in those moments of silence, and the emotions of suspense and enthusiasm when you reach a new country never fail to amaze.
