Benefits of Travelling Solo
Whether your relationship status is single or your significant other can’t get time off work, you may find that you’re going on holiday alone. Even if you won’t be experiencing Bali villas or any other tourist hotspots with someone else, you will enjoy so many benefits on a solo trip. Here are just a few of many.
Every Experience is For You
When you travel with someone else or a group of people, you find yourself having to do things that other people want to do. While you might be into nature walks and going off the beaten track, your party might want to experience the bustling nightlife. When you travel alone, every adventure you go on is for your benefit. You can soak up the luxury of Bali villas in a tranquil setting, or take a walk through various markets that are a must-do on any traveller’s list. Whatever you want to do, you can do it when you’re travelling solo.
You Can ‘Find Yourself’
Sometimes we can lose ourselves in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The daily nine to five grind can take its toll, and a holiday by yourself might help you to reclaim the real you. When you travel with other people, you get so caught up in the social setting that you often miss life-changing moments. Alone with your thoughts, however, you can gain a new appreciation for what you have, while experiencing a new part of the world you’ve never seen before. When you go home, you may feel refreshed and revitalized, ready to tackle anything life throws at you.
Travelling can be expensive. You have to pay for flights, accommodation such as motels, hotels, or Bali villas; then there’s food and tourist activities. The costs can run into the thousands, but when you travel alone, it can be far cheaper. You can source single rooms at a fraction of the cost of double bedrooms, get individual passes for events and activities, and fly for a smaller fee as well. Whenever you travel with someone else, it’s double the cost.
If you struggle with confidence even in your daily life, then solo travel will force you to become independent and confident. You’re experiencing the big wide world all on your own, and even if you lack confidence in your comfortable surroundings, you will undoubtedly find a façade to carry you through your adventure. When you find yourself in unfamiliar territory, you’re forced to adjust. What’s more, you may come home as a brand new version of yourself, full of confidence and worldly experience.
Of course, travelling with other people is exceptionally rewarding. You can make new memories, new friends, and experience new things together. However, travelling alone has an entirely different set of benefits as well. If you’re given the opportunity travel by yourself, grab it with both hands. It’s a brand new experience that may do you a world of good.
