Why should you travel SOLO 1


Why should you travel SOLO Lately I’ve been asked so many questions on why do I want to travel alone, some people think it’s crazy, some don’t understand why I do this. Trust me, I love my people, I’ve always enjoyed every single trip with my family and friends. However, travelling solo has its own unique benefits.Let me make this clear to you all by giving three of them I’ve had during my first solo trip.

You SEE yourself.

You don’t have to compromise on anything. You don’t have to wait for others to decide on the places to visit and the timings. You want to do something? You do it exactly the way you want to do it. I agree it’s fun to be with friends and family during trips. However,when you travel solo, at the end of the trip, you’ll realise that the whole trip was about yourself.It makes you understand yourself better.You know what you want and you know what clicks you. Perhaps it sounds selfish but I believe that ‘ no one can save yourself but you ‘, in the end of the day, the relationship you have with yourself is more important than the relationships you have with others. And, I believe that it reflects on how to handle the relationships around you.

You become more responsible.

Well, I am one of those people who is not a fan of responsibilities. Whenever I go on a trip with my family or friends, I don’t even keep my purse with me, I usually give it to a friend or someone in the trip so that I don’t have to be so cautious all the time. When I am alone on a trip, I must have seen the map at least ten times to make the itinerary, I do research about every place I want to go,I remember how much I paid to the local auto rickshaw, I remember every sign board. I remember every person I met,I remember every single detail. Like EVERY single detail. My mind becomes aware of everything around me.Also, On a personal level, it makes me feel more confident about myself that I can handle situations by myself without having to rely on someone all the time.

You learn from the little things:

When you travel solo, you get to interact a lot with the local people. I was lucky to meet a solo traveler from Hungary during my homestay. She’s 30 now, She was also 24 when she started traveling.She inspired me.The people who hosted me in the homestay were so kind, they taught me about their culture and made me feel like I was home. There’s a place near the homestay I stayed, it glistened the whole night with almost 100+ fireflies, it was so beautiful, I can’t put the feeling into words.I even met an auto driver who took me around to me a lot of places and he didn’t want to charge extra just because I had the time to interact with him. You get to learn a lot, a lot more than you think.

I might go to Coorg again with my friends/family but I know for a fact that it would not be the same. It’s not that I don’t like to be with them ( like I said, I love my people), it’s just that I found these little things more alluring when it’s a solo trip. I admit it was scary to go an unknown place alone but I just followed my instincts like I always do. And it was worth it.

I have decided to travel solo once in an year just to feel these things again.

P.S. Traveling solo isn’t easy, you need to plan a lot, do a lot of research, put your safety first, do it when you’re fully ready or don’t do it at all. Also, trust your guts, they never lie.
