Yes, we are all surrounded by people. We socialise with them daily as well as working with them. In reality we also need a break from the people around us and travelling solo seems to be a perfect way to do it. Check your conscience, there may be a sign that you need to travel alone. If you are still scared, or just full of excuses, here are the 6 good reasons to do it at least once in your life.
- You Will Meet Incredible People.
While travelling with friends or other group can be fun, travelling alone for a while may prove to be one of the most rewarding things you will do, and have the incredible experiences with people you will meet.
When we travel with friends or with a partner, we tend to limit ourselves to that small group of familiar faces, and although you will meet new people, the dynamics and interactions are not as deep and satisfying. While you are alone on the road, you have much more desire to find travel partners, interact with other travellers, and usually tending to do more to socialise.
- Total Sense Of Freedom.
When you travel alone and get to know people as well as making great friends, you probably will interact with travel partners and expanding their vision.
You will most likely change your plans when you hear that impressive waterfall, that amazing deserted beach, the opportunity to bungee jump in a high bridge, or enjoy a special snack that you only find out in a specific place.
When you are travelling, you are open to change the way you see the world and adapt to new views without problems. In addition to this fact you don’t have to include it on the group agenda, or give explanations, or disappoint anyone, you can track your pace, your desires, and move like the wind.
- Travelling Alone Deals With Your Fears.
It’s a big challenge, especially if it’s your first experience travelling alone. You may think about something that can go wrong, or if you end up in danger?
This is normal and perfectly human; fear exists for our own protection and boosts our care. But we should not let it control our lives. Security can be a great comfort, but common sense is the key.
Search well before you travel, check on hotels and look for testimonials from other travellers on forums and blogs. Respect the local culture and you’ll be fine.
- You Can Take Time To Get Fit.
If you have a stressful life at home, studying hard or working too much, travelling alone can be a chance to take time and recover your healthiness.
Whether you are travelling with a suitcase for a cheaper place, or if the sky is the limit of your money, you can use this time to relax.
Take pleasure in delicious local meals that will give you more energy and strength, take long walks on the beach at sunrise, or get a massage, do yoga and rest too.
Enjoy all the wonderful things you merit and understand that happiness is something you deserve, right? Not a privilege.
- You Get A Chance To Reinvent Yourself And Become Who You Want To Be.
When travelling alone you have the great opportunity to develop into a new person, exploring parts of your personality that you do not feel very comfortable or familiar.
When on the road, you will be challenged by several unexpected factors and will be amazed at how well you respond to these challenges. Is a big opportunity to trigger the wonderful, irresistible and clever person you are.
- You Can, finally, Taking a Time Off From Your World
Just turn off the world for few days.
Turn off your phone; “forget” to check your emails for while. Please, stop thinking about bills to pay, responsibilities, obligation and problems. Leave them aside. Most of the times we manage to find solutions to all our problems when we turn off and stop worrying. Have you ever tried to remember a name or date and simply couldn’t, and then when you gave up trying came off the tongue?
It is the same with other things in life. Sometimes our brains need to get rid of old thoughts so you can make room for the creation of new and better life. For this reason just disconnect, and be impressed with how fresh your mind will be when you return home.
