10 reasons to travel alone
Perhaps you are in the mood for a short holiday and did not find anyone to accompany you. Whatever is your reason, you can always choose to buy just one both ways ticket to any destination you want and start the adventure of your life. Should not be afraid of the unknown and loneliness. If you are tempted so little by this idea, but you are not yet decided whether to make your luggage or call your friends to join you, then you should read the list below and convince yourself.
You make the plans
You not need to convince anyone to go with you. You should not choose a place in agreement with someone, you are the boss now and what you want, that you do! No need to worry about luggage, no one will tell you that you got too many clothes or your makeup kit is higher than the travel bag! All planning will be as you want: your destination, to the airline and restaurant where you dine. A real treat!
When I say break, I mean a break in the true sense. There will be no one to ask you about the job, task, the breakups, former lovers, current lovers, future lovers, why did you eat last night, how you gained, how have weakened future plans! It will be a break with your daily life, an escape from ordinary. If however you do miss talking to loved ones, you always can give a call or an email.
You do what you want!
Have you always wanted the adrenaline? Here, is an ideal opportunity to try all sorts of extreme sports. Are you passionate about art? You can stay a whole day in front of a Rembrandt, without anyone to say that is boring. Do you want to lose a night in clubs? No problem, there is no one around to change your agenda.
Do not watch anyone
You not must be careful to lose the group or stay on the lookout in case your friend wants to go to any dodgy after a night club. Just take care of yourself, to treat yourself as you want and not worry about anything but yourself. Ok, sounds egocentric, but seems so tempting, isn’t it?
You will meet new people
At some point you’ll feel to change a word or two with someone. You can meet nice people, talking to the coffee shop or you can ask a girl sitting alone on a park bench if you can sit next to her. Do not be afraid that you will look silly or strange. Think that is a new experience. From there until the conversation is a short step. A compliment at an accessory or related to a newspaper article that the person is reading it can lead to very interesting conversations.
Opportunity for self-knowledge
Think you’d be here with you and only you will have enough time to worry about you! To think about what you want, to do what you want and what you’ve always wanted to do, to explore what’s in your mind. It’s inevitable to fail.
Here you sign an agreement with yourself. Say goodbye to boring tours and typical activities of any routine excursions. The secret lies in the travel experience not as tourist but as an independent person. Integrate you into the atmosphere of the place you visit another look rather bewildered tourist. You will learn more about the local culture.
You will return with a new perspective on life
It sounds pompous, but it is true. You really need to travel only to see the benefits of this activity. After such a trip you’ll certainly another vision of your job, the circumstances and, in general, on your life. It’s a good opportunity to re-evaluate life and make the first steps.
Do you think that after you’ve traveled alone, without anyone beside you, you will not regain or even gain the confidence in yourself? Think twice! When the taxi driver want to bypass the whole city to the hotel, who scold with him? You! Who apostrophize the guy who made a rude remark to your address? YOU! Well as the difficulties of the journey is definitely not stop there. The fact that you only have succeeded in doing in different times says more about you.
You win the admiration of others
Courage with which you left alone in the world will not be ignored. Those around you will admire the determination with which you have accomplished the extraordinary desire. Add the fact that you feel so fulfilled by your achievement. Memories and experience that you will win will be the most beautiful stories of your life. Think what you will tell to your grandchildren about what you were doing in “good times”.
