Vacation simply means enjoying relaxing moments to the fullest. It is generally presumed that going on vacation means going out with bunch of people whether they are friends or family. And if someone decides to go alone, they are met with raised eyebrows and sympathetic looks. Travelling solo does not mean you are lonely it simply means you enjoy your company and you don’t need anyone else to enjoy with.
Here are 5 reasons why travelling alone is good and why everyone should try it at least once
- Meet new people
While travelling with friends or family you get so engrossed with them that you don’t get chance to meet other people. If you travel alone there is a chance of chatting with local folk and getting to know the place and their culture more. Often people who are alone are more approachable to others to start a conversation. And you never know you may even find your soul mate.
- Bucket list
Make a list. You will find that there are many things you were dying to do but no one was ready to do it with you. You get that chance when you are alone. You can do anything you want and no one will be there to stop you or discourage you. You will feel content happy with yourself after ticking off various task from your bucket list.
- Complete freedom/ Simple journey
With couple of people you have to plan your trip accordingly. You have to coordinate with others and you also have to keep in mind their likes and dislikes. When alone, you can plan according to your wish and liking.
- Admire beauty
You tend to admire surrounding more when you are alone. Things look more beautiful and you can take your own sweet time to admire genuine beauty. You are in no rush. Sitting alone admiring the views can also help in collecting your disoriented thoughts.
- Change in perceptive
You challenge you own fear and insecurities. You fight them and don’t fear them anymore. You become more strong and independent.
Many people have described their solo trips as a religious experience. To take in new surroundings with unfiltered prejudice is very calming and peaceful. Travelling alone gives a chance to indulge yourself fully. You might have many fears but overcoming them and going alone is worth every penny.
