We all have that one friend, who does everything alone. Goes to the movie alone, visit museums alone, and does not ask others for a company in a restaurant, even travels alone. There come the ones, who give solo world tour. Where we all keep wondering how and why.
Of course being independent is fun. Who does not want a freedom of everything for the next vacation? But it also means responsibilities. Most of us are usually scared to travel alone. We want to share the trip with friends or family. We want to make memories with priorities.
Should not “I” be the first priority? Have you ever thought like this? Some of us still have the answer “No”. They want to build memories with their precious ones and have a beautiful history together.
There are also others, who are now giving a thought on traveling alone. Are you one of them? Then this article is exactly what you are looking for.
Having a doubt? Let’s move forward. You will start believing in me and finally you will believe, you actually have read a lot. The things you have been wondering so long are clearly explained here.
Let’s move on to the why and how about traveling alone.
If you are a wanderlust, you already know how much maintaining a certain budget matters while traveling. You obviously want to see everything of that place. And you want to try all the famous food. And you want to take pictures, and buy souvenirs, and you want to do a lot more.
All this costs so big. That’s what we all think while planning a new trip. So, just think in this way, if you have a huge family and are planning to travel alone, you are saving a lot. Not about only living them behind, you can choose a small inexpensive room to stay in. as you are going to be on move the whole day, you surely would not need much comfort in that room. All you need to think about the musts. Again, you can move to any place spending a very small amount. You can share a vehicle with other tourists. In every phas, you will have to spend a lot less.
When you are planning to travel alone, the plan should be going very smoothly. To be honest, you do not need too much planning. While planning for a trip, the main thing we hate is any kind of disruption. But when you are planning a trip with a lot of people, you must value their opinion. What they like and what they do not like.
Planning for a tour is also a big responsibility. You tell your friends, they tell their friends, and the circle goes on. But, if you are a traveler, you would not be hating that. More people are more fun. Even living with new people means more new experiences.
Then where is the problem? You are already guessing that. No? There will be so many changes in the plan. And sometimes the whole plan gets changed. So annoying. And if you are the one that made the plan, I know, you are already hating them.
So, why thinking twice. It is going to be your and only your tour.
Go solo, go free
Freedom is a basic right. Well, we have that right. But when you travel with a huge group, family or friends, you have to make compromises. And if you are the sober one, then you are doomed. I do not want to remind you your sad days, when you had to miss something just because others did not like that.
Now you can avoid that too. Which places you are visiting, which foods you are tasting, which hotel you are going to stay in – All these are now your decision. Nobody gets to interrupt.
Different people find different things comfortable. That is not a problem anymore if you are traveling alone.
You can spend time wherever you want to, with whoever you want to. Now you can stay at a place as long as you want to stay there. Take as many photos as many you want to. Nobody is telling you for doing it fast.
>>New people, new friends
Meeting new people is so much fun for the people who love to travel around the world. This is one of their biggest priorities while traveling to new places.
Making new friends, exploring their arts and culture – I personally give that a top priority. Making new friends lets you know the diversity. Their religious belief, their social norms, rituals and why they are like this – you will come to know all these; if you go near them, see them closely.
All these will be possible and very easy when you are travelling solo. You will be mixing with new people for your own need. And after a short tour, you will feel that you have known these people for years, or been in that place for years. You may start wondering what if you were a part of them too.
Yes, I know you have been hearing this all along your life. And most probably, you believe you have nothing more to know about yourself. After all, you are the one, who is supposed to know you the best. What if this best reaches a new level?
Giving time to yourself is really important. And that can be done best while you are travelling solo.
How? While travelling alone, you will be seeing things for yourself, feeling them deeply. Again, no interruption, no one to bother.
As you are mixing with totally new people and their culture, you are going to explore it deeper and deeper. All by yourself. You will be losing yourself among them. Thus, you’ll be exploring yourself too.
After just a short tour alone, you will know so much more about yourself, you will have so many experiences. You will learn to deal with a lot more.
So, I wish you a really fun solo trip full of the best memories.
