Traveling with a group of friends can be a lot of fun.
Travel with a significant other can be awesome, too.
But sometimes, you just need to embark on a solo adventure.
You’ll feel liberated the second you decide to travel by yourself.
For starters, you get to decide your complete itinerary—no compromising.
You operate on your timetable, and your timetable alone. Well, except when it comes to transit.
Traveling by yourself means doing whatever you want, with no distractions.
You can eat wherever and whenever you want, even if it’s something a little weird.
Best of all, you won’t need to share a bed.
If you’ve ever wanted to experience true solitude, there’s no better place to do it than in a foreign country.
When you travel by yourself, you can be whoever you want to be.
You can generally make a fool of yourself without giving a care.
You’ll master the art of taking really, really good selfies.
Sometimes, you might feel a little lonely. But that’s okay—it’s easy to make friends with other solo travelers.
And remember—home is only a phone call away (though don’t be surprised if your friends get a little jealous).
The opportunity to travel solo doesn’t come very often. If you get the chance to do it, take advantage of it. You’ll learn more about who you are, you’ll experience true independence, and you’ll make memories that will last a lifetime.
