by Julia on February 3, 2020

You’ve found that you’ve been working yourself into the ground for the past few months without any much-needed breaks. You’ve saved up quite a lot of money and now you look to give yourself the travelling vacation you deserve. However, you look around asking your friends only to find that none of them can come on vacation with you. Sadly, you put aside your plans for travel and start slaving away at work again. Has this situation ever happened to you? Don’t let it ever stop here, as travelling solo is one of the best things that you can ever do in your life.

Free from commitments and appeasing others, by solo travelling you can go to where you want, when you want and do the things that you want to do. Travelling with friends can be amazing, but can also lead to some unnecessary dramatic moments that can sour a whole trip. It might sound scary venturing across the world by yourself, but once you get over there, you’ll love yourself for making the decision you made. Solo travel is essential to experiencing the world and you must try it!

Freedom to do Whatever you Want

The first and most amazing thing about travelling alone is that you now have the freedom to structure your vacation the way you’d exactly want to. While travelling with friends provides plenty of social opportunities, it can be guaranteed that you will meet others on your travels who will quickly become friends. The great part about these friends that you make, is that there are no expectations. If you decide that you want to stay in your hotel or hostel for the whole day and sit back and relax, there is no one stopping you from doing it. If you want to spend all day shopping in a large mall, go out and get your shopping spree.

If you want to see the country or city you’re in, that is another option. Every city and country you go to will have so many different activities according to, so keeping your day free and open will allow you to experience the most things. Some adventures offered to you by the city you’re in will appeal to you, and by going alone, you can ensure there is no one to tell you that it’s boring or a waste of time. Don’t let someone change your vacation plans for you, travel the world doing what you want to do and seeing what you want to see.

Leave the Drama at Home

Have you ever been on a trip to get into a fight with the friends you’re in? Or have you ever had a great vacation when the people around you decide to bring up dramatic issues that happened back home in the conversations here? The last thing you want to be doing on a vacation is worrying about other people or getting into fights with others. You did not spend your vacation and your money to find yourself getting into fights and being in a bad mood the whole time. By travelling alone, you can erase all the possibilities of this happening. There will be no one to bring up a bad incident that happened months ago or someone to force you into doing something that you do not want to do. As great as they can be, friends are often the number one reason why vacations get ruined. Save yourself the trouble and save your voice from all the yelling. Leave your friends at home and take some much needed me time, you’ll feel so much more refreshed and excited.

You Will Get to Know Yourself

A lot of people claim to know themselves, but they only base it on the opinions of friends and family. By getting away from all of that for an extended period of time, you are free to explore yourself and really get to know who you are. Things you enjoy, things you dislike, and passions that keep your energy high. Getting to know yourself is not an easy task and requires a lot of focus and alone time. Travelling solo provides this opportunity and can give you a much-needed break from all the noise of your world to give yourself time to think. You will come to learn what you need for yourself and what you shouldn’t be involved with in your life. Take the time alone, you’ll be amazed at what you can learn.

Travelling is a fantastic thing, no matter how many or how few people you go with. It can be quite terrifying to venture off alone, but once you get into things, you’ll find out it is one of the best times of your life. The freedom to do whatever you want, the ability to get to know yourself, and keeping yourself free from all the problems friends can bring are just a few benefits of travelling alone. Give yourself that vacation you deserve and don’t worry about your friends. Where will you be heading to?
