The thought itself makes a shiver spine go down your nerves. Though you all are like independent adults who can take care of themselves but when it comes to traveling we are back to a childlike state. Everything is new and unknown. This is how we learn to rely on others and not believe in ourselves. Though, solo travelling is not for everyone, but it is recommended that one should travel solo at least once in their lifetime.
Get out of your Comfort Zone
You are travelling with friends or your family. In this case, you are spending time only with the people you know. Why not give a chance to know the unknown? Often the idea of traveling alone seems frightening and dangerous. It forces us to interact with the world in a way different from others. Come out of your comfort zone and experience the new "YOU".
Learn new things
You get to meet new people, who touch your lives in some way or the other. It exposes you to new people, their cultures, religion, food, lifestyles and what not. There is so much to see and experience that is not in the guide books.
Solo travel makes you far more responsible than you are right now. Your outlook towards life gets changed. You are completely on your own. Travelling with family or friends would have had a shared responsibility.
Solo travelling helps in confidence building to a large extent. A boost in confidence will make you a better person and it will multiply many times.
Increase your happiness
Travelling boosts your happiness to a certain level. When you travel all alone, you will understand that money spent on experience will bring you more happiness and comfort than if they are spent on material objects.
Fight your weaknesses
Everyone has weakness and when you travel alone you confront with them. This is when you learn to tackle, fight and convert them into an opportunity. Here you not only explore new places but also discover yourself.
Learn a foreign language
You tend to learn new languages as you travel to other countries. Learning new language will help you overcome the communication barrier.
Travelling alone is not always easy; it tests your patience, courage and willingness to adapt to situations you are not suitable with. But despite challenges, it is instills in you a sense of discipline, restraint and control of your actions.
You are on your own
Travelling alone is a kind of experience that can give new definition to life. Here you are on your own, you are free to do whatever you like, experience the unknown, and also open new horizons and give vision towards life.
Make your bucket list come true
Travelling insist us to prepare bucket list in advance, so that we can explore and experience when the time is ripe.
