So if you're having second thoughts about those solo travelling plans, read on for five compelling reasons that'll make you book that flight and have that solo trip that will definitely change your life.
Being alone and getting that sense of solitude can give us a feeling of sadness from time to time. It makes you miss being with another person's company, making you more aware of how much they mean to your life. Going solo teaches you how to appreciate the people who are always there for you and you how you may have taken their presence for granted.
Being able to experience a different culture is a sign of smooth adaptation to changes. During my solo trip to Japan two months back, I learnt that I could be more polite than I thought I was. The patience that a staff had for her new colleague while teaching her cashiering duties was an exemplary lesson and a valuable takeaway for myself.
Getting lost in a foreign land and not being able to find the right directions can be a headache. Not to mention problems like your Wi-Fi signal running low and not being able to access Google Maps, leaving you no choice but to ask the locals for help.
Travelling solo gives you the responsibility to fend for yourself without having someone be your shield or your knight in shining armour. Being able to enjoy your own company and having your thoughts at ease will remind you that your opinion on things matter. Conquering foreign lands alone allows you to believe that you are a well-rounded person who can achieve anything they put their mind into. It'll make you realise that you are awesome, ala-carte.
