Traveling isn’t easy, and doing it solo isn’t either. It takes lot of courage, patience and the will to overcome whatever situations might come your way during these journeys. Yet it might sound like a daunting experience, getting out of your comfort zone will teach you many things that you didn’t even know about yourself and open a great amount of opportunities while on the go.
Stop waiting. Is there something like the ‘right’ moment or person? I know, it can be scary if you’ve never done it before, but even scarier –for me- is the thought of growing old without experiencing and keeping myself from realizing my dreams.
Just go. Book your flight, pack your bags and get ready for this new adventure that will give you the keys for ultimate freedom. Since this about what you want, when you want and where you want, limiting yourself to your own desires and likes.
Trust. As the journey develops the feeling of loneliness might want to creep into you, but don’t think that way. Smile, for there are other travelers just like you exploring themselves and the world, and let’s not forget about the most interesting and loving locals you’ll meet around.
Although solo travel is not for everyone, you should give it a try. Whether it is for the weekend, two weeks or even a couple of months, do it. You’ve got nothing to lose, but lots to gain. Trip after trip you’ll notice the change, a little bit more confident, in tune with what you feel and want and embrace independence.
Because, it could take a long time until that someone says ‘Yes, let’s go!’ and even longer to find the exact moment when to hop on the next flight.
We’ve only got this very moment – Want to stop wondering and see the world?
