Solo travel... the two words that scare the life out of us. Is it the fear of being alone? Not having fun? Or straight up worrying about being in a country where you know no one or their language? One thing's for sure - travelling alone is a game changer and is character building in a way nothing else is. Go on, be brave and give it a go!
1. You're Your Own Boss
This is YOUR trip, so you get to decide when to get out of bed, where to eat and what your day is going to consist of. All the decisions are in your hands!
2. You Get To Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone
Nothing good ever comes out of staying in your safe space. Stepping out, exploring and trying new things is what life is all about. This is how you'll grow and have the most life changing experiences!
3. More Time For Self-Reflection
Time away from home and the hustle and bustle of your everyday life, will not only provide you with that ' me time ' that you have been longing for, but will also allow you to discover yourself in a way you haven't when you're surrounded with people.
4. You'll Make New Friends
Solo travel enables you to embrace change and not just hang out with people who are similar to you. Don't be shy, branch out and strike up a convo with a stranger. Who knows, maybe you'll have made a friend for life.
Trust us, once you've done it, you'll never want to go back to good ol' fashioned travel again. So go on, take a leap! Book that ticket and get to explorin - the world is your oyster!
