Solo Traveller – Why Consider Travelling Alone?

solo travellerThere is something liberating when you travel on your own and going to a place no one even knows. For some, travelling on your own can be very liberating. It can be very therapeutic and relaxing. Here are some reasons why you should also consider travelling alone:

Alone time is healthy for you

Time spent on your own will give you more time to reflect on the important things when you get back home. Your experiences on the road will give you a wider perspective in life too. While travelling on your own has also its own struggles but they can also make you stronger and will let you appreciate life even more.

You will appreciate the people in your life

As you are far from the people back home, travelling on your own will make you appreciate them even more. Far away and alone, you will be reminded of the great times you had and you will be reminded of how precious every second with them.

Being lonely will make you more creative

Solo travellers are usually forced to find expressive ways to amuse themselves especially if there is no Internet or wi-fi to distract them with. You will be able to start writing again or find yourself drawing what you see.

You can pretend you are a solo explorer

Isn’t it fun to just pretend you are the only tourist in the world and you are discovering new lands by yourself? While you are definitely not the only traveller around, it is still a thrilling fantasy to play on your mind as you travel on your own while on the bus or as you walk up a trail on that mountain.
