A solo trip is something everyone should do at least once in their life. It’s liberating, terrifying, exhilarating, and one of the most transformative experiences you can have.
This type of vacation is great for independent souls with a sense of adventure, those who love making new friends, and anyone looking for a way to grow. I’d argue that while this type of vacation may be a bit much for anyone who still lives by the rule “never talk to strangers” and is petrified of the big, bad world, traveling solo is the best way to confront those fears and move past them towards something wonderful.
The ability to do what you want, when you want, where you want, with no one to answer to but yourself
The simple pleasures of not having to share dessert and sleeping diagonally in bed
Inevitably meeting fascinating people along the way (many of whom become good friends)
Not being able to share experiences with someone else
While adversity makes you stronger, it also means you’re on your own if something goes wrong
Travel can be more expensive, and even risky (although the danger is significantly less when you exercise common sense)
