You dislike getting out of your comfort zone. So if you decided to embark on an adventure alone, it would most likely baffle those around you. Travelling solo would force you to tough it up and be more adaptable to changes. Since you’re pretty closed off and you’re not comfortable with trying new things, it might be too difficult for you. Still, if you want to push on this dream, we say go ahead. It's tiem to take a chance and widen your horizons. But first, prepare yourself.


If you answered mostly B, then you will, with a bit of help.

Although you’re a bit game to do things, you can be quite indecisive. Most of the time, you need the help of others to be more comfortable. That’s why when you go on a solo trip, you’ll most likely find trouble getting past sudden challenges that you’ll likely face alone. Muster up some courage and just follow your guts. This way, you’ll enjoy your trip with a renewed sense of freedom. 

If you answered mostly C, then you’re good to go!
