I love travelling; it does not matter if it is with friends, my family or my boyfriend. I am convinced that every journey can be rewarding, offering experiences and can create a memory lasting for a lifetime. However, travelling solo can be an extraordinary adventure.
You will focus more on the destination. Being alone in another country forces you to interact more with your surroundings. It helps to build vivid memories as your attention is focused on everything going on around you.
You get the chance to interact more with others. Whether you are looking for human connection or not, being on your own in an unknown country, can lead to a great conversation or the beginning of an amazing friendship. I am still in contact with some people I met during my travels.
Change your plans whenever you want. There is nobody you have to rely on. Every decision you make is just about what you want.
Traveling alone builds confidence. Traveling solo can be lonely and unconvenient. But going out, feeling lost and putting yourself back together. Travelling gave me so much strength and confidence and luckily, I was able to carry this feeling with me back home.
You can learn more about yourself. When you go out to see the world just by yourself, you will face a lot of struggles. Although, this can sometimes be demanding, it helps to find out who you really are and what you really want in life. You have so much time to think about your life, your future and who you wanna become.
Maybe this post inspired some of you to risk it and follow your heart to start your own solo adventure out there. I really want to write more about travelling and going on adventures on your own.
