Going on a trip with your friends or with your family can be really awesome because you can share your experience with someone else who is close to you.
But have you ever thought about traveling alone?
Here are 4 reasons why you should travel alone.
Focus on your destination
You can totally choose the destinations that you like the most; you are not influenced by anyone, so you don’t have to go somewhere that you are not interested in. In addition, when you go on a solo trip you can concentrate on what you would want to visit without being influenced by other’s opinions.
Since you are alone, you can’t talk with your friends or family when you have nothing to do, so you have to interact with people who live in that country. That can be a good thing because they can show you what are the best things to do in that place or you could even become friends with these people in order to experience the locals’ life.
At first it is absolutely scary and I can tell that it is true! I came to Los Angeles to study English and I flew from Rome to Istanbul and from Istanbul to Los
Angeles all the way alone. That scared me a little bit because I was scared I would take the wrong flight or I thought that something bad could happen. But at the end, everything was fine and I became more confident!
Learn about yourself
Last but not least, during your solo travel, you have to face who you are and you will better understand what you are interested in.
So traveling with others you will find great friendship and you will have fun, but traveling alone you might find yourself.
