If I ask you have you ever traveled solo?? Your reaction might be alone?? No, not all!! But if I ask you one more question, why not?? Most of the people would say it’s scary/ I need someone to accompany me/ I need someone with me to capture my pictures/ and many more reasons would be explained.
Well, everyone should travel solo at least once a year to have the different and valuable experience of life, one should not feel scary, in fact, everyone must feel confident to explore the world alone as this is something extraordinary. However, solo trips are becoming more common nowadays and their experiences are actually out of this world, something flawless.
Now we are going to talk about some of the advantages of solo trips and why one should travel solo at least once in a year. Let’s start with it:
- We have a chance to discover ourselves:
We usually have a belief that we know ourselves better than anyone else but there are lots of things about which we are not familiar. To your surprise, through solo trips we can connect with our own company, resultant, we develop new interests about some strange and interesting things that we have never imagined and are not aware of these earlier.
There are times when we tend to overestimate ourselves, on the other hand, we underestimate oneself. Solo trips give us an opportunity to discover ‘new me’ and also help us to overcome many fears that we have inside us. Furthermore, it helps us to make peace with our mind that works as a stress buster for all the solo travelers and we feel much more alive.
2. Meeting with strangers, offer us new experiences:
As the human being is a social person by nature, so all time we have our family members/friends/relatives/colleagues around us that’s what is our normal routine and we rarely get a chance to meet new people to learn something new.
The icing on the cake is when we travel alone, we interact with strangers if a person is introvert he/she have the chance to open up as they are not left with any other option than to speak with local people directly. We get new friends for a lifetime and also somehow we feel free to share our knowledge, thoughts, ideas with new people and learn about themselves.
3. Overcome insecurities and fears:
When you are on your solo trip you experience new things and you overcome many fears like fear of traveling alone, fear of staying alone, fear of eating alone and much more. As you tend to travel alone often you feel more confident while eliminating almost all your insecurities.
Eventually, solo trips start providing you the sheer happiness, it makes you more efficient and confident than before, at this point in time in your life you have one thing in your mind that ‘I can face any challenge, I don’t fear anymore.’ In conjunction to this, this is the time where your new life starts along with new experiences to come, that’s what the meaning of real life is, so don’t hesitate to explore more.
4. We stop being bothered if judged for our choices
For those who are foodies eating is always the most fun part of their traveling, it can be a food in the street or restaurant or hotels. We try different things and we start admiring the food stuff all the more, we eat whatever we wish to, We wear what we want to, we go where we wish to.
On the top of all, we just don’t give a damn to other, what they think, say, or do, there is no one to restrict or judge us on our choices. We just try to focus on to live our life to it’s fullest because we are the king of our life no one else. To live life like a free bird is something very extraordinary, a few people get this golden opportunity to explore life in the way they actually want.
5. Stay within your budget and save money
It is evident that traveling solo is cheaper when compared to traveling with others, then why travel with someone, you can save cash by not expending it on unnecessary things. It can be the case, the one who is traveling with you is a lot more spendthrift than you are as everyone has different habits or it depends upon person to person and at times it’s feel bad to say ‘it’s too expensive.’
Most importantly, you may save a lot of money when traveling alone than when traveling with someone, so it’s always the best option to travel alone, ‘spend less, explore more.’ In addition to this, making and managing your own budget becomes much easier as you don’t have to look up to any other person for your decision.
6. You will experience more peace and flexibility
When we travel solo we definitely not abide with anybody, we have more flexibility, not in rush for anything as plenty of time to spend at the place wherever we love to, which further leads to peace in our heart and soul.
Interestingly, we are free to make changes in our plans, destinations, hike as we are the one who has each and every right and authority to do so without referring or consulting any other person. No explanations, no disappointments, just follow your heart which saves a lot of time and energy.
7. Leads to satisfaction in the end
Most of us must have experienced, when we travel with someone, we tend to experience disappointment or indulge into fights at some level. As every person is different in their own way so there are maximum chances of mismatch of thinking, thought, ideas which we might don’t like that leads to dissatisfaction
It also happens sometimes that we are interested in visiting some of the destinations, want to explore various activities such as parasailing, scuba diving, bungee jumping, but the person with whom we are on a trip is not at all interested in it, in that situation, it’s natural to feel annoyed. So, if we are traveling alone we don’t to have to face all these dissatisfaction, ultimately, we end up with more satisfaction than ever before.
So, if you haven’t traveled alone yet, it’s time to pack your bags and go on a solo trip to experience and explore the things you are missing in your life, that’s what we actual call life, just ‘live your life king size’.
