If you've been thinking about travelling alone for a while, it is time to stop thinking and start doing. With summer steadily approaching, you've got the perfect opportunity to plan your first solo trip. Travelling on your own is a truly enriching and life changing experience that every woman should tryat least
once in her life - although, once you have tried it, you will probably want to do it again and again! Here's why:
Traveling by yourself teaches you to be comfortable with and accept who you are. It shows you that you are enough to make yourself happy, and reduces your dependence on other people to bring you joy.
It means that youcan do whatever you want to do, without having to worry about other people's preferences and interests. What could be more perfect? Time to start checking items off your bucket list!
You will get to meet some very interesting people, who will open up your mind to new worlds. In the process, you might even make some amazing friends in the most unexpected places.
Planning and going on a solo trip will teach you how to be responsible and look after yourself - a skill that will come in handy later on in life.
Traveling on your own will inspire and push you to move out of your comfort zone and do things you've never done before - whether that involves trying a new cuisine or sky diving!
The experience of being away from loved ones will mean that when you do finally return home, you will value them so much more than you did when you left.
Being the master of your trip means that you don't have to stick to a schedule or an itinerary (if you don't want to!) You can be spontaneous, live in the moment and truly be free.
You will learn about sides of yourpersonality that you had never known about, because traveling alone is the ultimate opportunity to reconnect with and learn about yourself.
Traversing the globeon your own is the biggest confidence booster that one can experience. Once the initial jitters disappear, you will feel empowered, in control and on top of the world.
In the end, you will be a very satisfied and happy globetrotter. And that's what really matters, right?
