Ria is a girl who loves traveling and she says this is the biggest reason why she works. She saves money to travel, no let me put it more aptly- she earns money to travel. She travels with her friends, family, and colleagues.
The other day she had planned a trip but none of her friends had time to come along. She thought to herself, “I deeply desire to visit but how can I go alone.” A little voice from inside said, “Yes, let’s go alone. How does it matter? It will be an experience.”
Another strong voice said, “No, it is not safe to travel alone! It will be boring. Who will click your pictures? Who will you talk to?
After thinking and rethinking Ria whispered to that strong inner voice, “Calm down”. I will travel solo this time. It sounds exciting! I promise I will be careful about things to ensure my safety.
Some of the reasons why you should travel solo sometimes are :
Spend quality time with yourself
In our busy lives where we are running at a fast pace to achieve our goals, we hardly get time to think deeply about ourselves, about what we want from life, what gives us happiness, etc. While traveling solo you can have enough time and the right environment to think about yourself and enjoy your company.
Pursue your interests
When you travel solo you are the only decision-maker. So indulge in the things you like, explore what interests you at your own pace, and just enjoy. When you are in a group, you like it or not, but you have to travel to places you have no interest in.
Battle your fear
Fear is one of the major factors which hold people back from traveling solo. One needs to be careful while traveling alone but that doesn’t mean you give up on your desire to travel to places alone. Overcome this fear. Someone has aptly said that everything you want is on the other side of fear.
Become friends with new people
When you are traveling solo you are open to interacting with new people and finding travel friends. Meeting new people, and knowing new things make you grow as an individual.
When we travel solo we get a chance to embrace unfamiliar things just the way kids do. We learn to be comfortable with things that are not so familiar to us.
Enjoy a sense of freedom and independence
While traveling solo you learn to figure out things on your own like using maps, public transport, etc. There is no dependency on anyone and you do things exactly the way you want to. It also builds confidence.
Discover a new you
There is so much to experience, learn and explore while traveling solo. You sometimes get to discover your talents, your potential, and your strengths which you never knew before.
Traveling solo doesn’t mean being alone. So pack your bags and go on a solo trip brushing aside your inhibitions.
I am ready for this new exploration of not only a place but myself! Are you?
