A few months ago, I had the opportunity to travel on my own to one of the major islands in the Philippines. I realized after the experience that I had really had so much fun experiencing solo travel!
I never thought I was going to enjoy it as much, but there is really some special attraction about solo travel. People are so busy nowadays that they sometimes forget how important it is to give yourself some time off just to wander somewhere.
My work as a teacher can sometimes be very stressful physically, mentally, and emotionally. I later realized that we need to let go of these negative thoughts and make space for better ones.
Solo travel is probably where we discover the answers for every one of our issues. We never know what could come along during the entire process – this is what I think enjoyed the most.
So the best thing to do is to simply separate yourself from everything, go as far as you can and you may be delighted by how new you’ll feel once you get back home.
Here are the 5 reasons why I love Solo Travel and why YOU should do it too!
1. You get to meet great people!
While going with our buddies can be a ton of fun, travelling solo for some time can turn out to be a unique experience and may be one of the most fulfilling things you could ever do in your entire life. While you’re on your own there is more possibility of meeting up with different explorers and as much as possible reach out to them.
2. You have absolute freedom!
When you go all alone and you begin meeting individuals and new companions, you may even join other travelers and wind up changing your plans. When travelling, you’re interested in new experiences and you’ll invite them with open arms. The good thing is that you don’t need to fit in with the group, give explanations – you can simply follow your own beat, wishes and move like the wind.
3. Fears can be conquered, go for it!
Take note of this, especially if this is your very first solo experience. Security can be a comfort and common sense is the major key. Research before you travel, explore accommodation options, and read reviews from other travelers. Facebook friends can also be a useful source of advice and travel tips. Don’t forget to take into consideration the local culture to ensure that your trip goes smoothly.
4. You don’t pay for others, spoil yourself!
On the off chance that you have an upsetting life back home, either because of school or work, travelling alone can be the opportunity to set aside some time off and spoil yourself. Enjoy rich and delightful local dinners which will help your vitality and well being, take long strolls on the shoreline at dawn, or get a massage; do some yoga and unwind. Appreciate all the glorious things you deserve, and comprehend that contentment is a right, not a benefit.
5. You need to realize that you are AWESOME!
When travelling alone, you can leave your grumpy, tired old self behind and begin to be another you. Investigate parts of your identity you are not acquainted with. Engage yourself by unleashing the brilliant, powerful and intelligent individual you are. Doing solo travel can definitely bring the best out of you!
Solo travel is not just to visit to different destinations all around the Philippines or the world but It’s also for travelers to get to know his or her inner self.
