You might not immediately consider traveling solo as a viable means of travel, but many people argue that it can be a freeing, spiritual, and even life-changing experience. Being independent and arranging travel for yourself is the perfect way to learn to be alone while reveling in the beauty and freedom that the world around you can bring.
You Get to Encounter Unique Cultural Experiences
If you're ready to foray into the freedom of solo travel but aren't quite ready to go completely on your own, why not join a unique walking tour?
A group tour enables you to explore remote locations in relative safety, as with the wukalina Walking Tasmania tour. Based in Tasmania, the tour offers the unique experience of exploring indigenous life by taking part in cultural experiences like the traditional Smoking Ceremony.
You Get to Meet Amazing New People
Traveling alone forces you to get out there and meet new and exciting people. Going it alone in Bali and other backpacker destinations provide you with the perfect opportunity to get out there and meet like-minded people who are just as keen as you to make friends and experience new things. You can make unique memories with people from entirely different locations and cultures to you.
You Can Do Exactly What You Want
Want a lie-in? You can do it. Want to go to that unique looking island trip? No problem.
Traveling alone means not having to make anyone happy, and being truly free from what other people want to do. If you make friends with a group of travelers, and can't agree on what to do, you have the luxury of going your separate ways without worrying about causing offense.
Go where you want, when you want.
Increase Your Self Confidence
Whether you increase your confidence by successfully navigating things alone for the first time, or you find making new friends easier than you thought, traveling alone enables your self-confidence and sense of self-worth to soar.
You're the master of your own fate when you're the only one responsible for finding your hotel, managing your money and essentially, not getting lost.
Each day you spend sorting yourself out is one more bonus point for your journey of independence.
Living in the Moment
Our working lives are fuelled by quick decisions, stress and early morning commutes. Traveling alone allows us to slow down the pace and truly live each moment day by day.
The longer you get away, the more time you have to unwind and see clearly without the pressure of your daily life. You can spend time on your own, or with a group of people truly enjoying each minute of the day, without worrying about what happens next.
Traveling alone can open up a world of opportunities and lead to life-changing confidence that allows you to be comfortable making decisions alone and most importantly, spending time with yourself. Here's to your increased independence and wellbeing in all your solo travels.
