Are you on the fence about taking a solo trip? There are pros and cons to both sides of the coin, but we are here to share four reasons why travelling solo is good for the soul.
1. Gain newfound confidence
Travelling solo opens your eyes to a whole new world. Whether you’re making decisions on the fly, or meeting new people, you will slowly come into your own. Things that you used to worry about may well become a thing of the past as your travels continue. Not only is this newfound confidence great to have when travelling, but also in everyday life.
2. Become a better problem-solver
Travelling solo means there is only you to rely on. To book transport, to figure out directions, to find a meal – it’s all on you! There’s no doubt that you will quickly adapt to the best way to problem solve for you and how you travel. Whether that’s becoming a pro at searching for the best flights to learning a city’s public transport system after a day or two, you automatically become the best person to trust.
3. Plan YOUR perfect trip
We think this is one of the top reasons why travelling solo is good for the soul. Nobody knows you better than yourself, so a solo trip means you can plan your perfect trip. From trying all the different types of Japanese konbini sandwiches, to building your dream itinerary traversing through the Southern States of the USA, create your ultimate holiday by travelling solo.
4. Greater awareness of your surroundings
Travelling on your own means you’re more likely to have greater awareness of what is going on around you. This can only have positive flow on effects, allowing you to fully immerse yourself into your surroundings and pick up on small nuances that you may miss when travelling with somebody else.
