Surely you’ve been there. You’re dying to go somewhere but no one is able to go with. So what do you do? Scrap your plans or go have an epic adventure on your own?
I’m a huge fan of going! Here’s why:
Every day you get to do exactly what YOU want to do.
Want to eat Italian? Perfect, do it. Want to leave early? Stay later? Your day is yours and yours alone. You never have to wait for anyone to shuffle out the door or leave early because they want to.
You will meet amazing people.
When you don’t have a built in person to talk to you either make a new friend or don’t talk to someone that day.
You learn how to handle any situation that comes up.
Traveling solo you are completely responsible for yourself so all of the planning, navigating, figuring things out when things go awry fall squarely on your shoulders. This is a good thing. It’s amazing what you’ll learn and how you’ll grow.
You learn how to entertain yourself and enjoy your own company, a valuable life skill, really.
You will have amazing experiences.
Imagine if you skipped out on going on that safari just because no one could come with you? You know you’re going to meet cool people along the way, right? Believe me, you will.
Come back home and feel awesome because you’ve accomplished something a lot people wouldn’t have the courage to do.
