Traveling solo is more than just an adventure, it is a liberating experience where you find out more about yourself than you have ever found out before. Every time I travel solo, I connect more with God as I see the wonders he created or allowed men to create. Getting to see this wonderful, yet flawed world is a dream of mine. That is why I want to list the 9 advantages to traveling solo.
9 Advantages to Traveling Solo
See the world
What’s better than seen the world through your own eyes without having someone else tell you about it.
Freedom to up and go
You can literally up and go anywhere you want. there is no one stopping you!
I cannot tell you the benefits of this one. It is so much cheaper to eat for one person than to eat for two. It is much cheaper to stay at a hostel by yourself than to have to get a hotel room or a private room. So travel solo , and you can even stay in the airport waiting for your flight from one night to the next day if you have an early flight.
Meeting new people
You get to meet other solo travelers such as yourself. Whether in tours, hostels or just at a cafe, you get to meet all kinds of interesting people that are going through some of the same experiences as yourself.
No one complaining besides you
This is a big one for me. I love traveling solo just because of this reason alone. Having no one breathing down your neck complaining that they are tired or that they don’t want to go to a specific place. I can say thing because I have been that person that complains about walking and about going to places they don’t want to go. Therefore, travel alone and that issue goes away!
Do as you wish
You get to go and pick the places you want to go without anyone to put in their option on the table. you just up and go!
Stay in places as long as you want
You set your own schedule, therefore you choose how long you can stay in one place. Thanks to travelling solo i went to Spain twice in one month just because I could (and I had to do research, but that is another post).
Easier to find good deals
The best deals are those found at the last minute, and those deals come usually for one or two people.
Enjoy Quiet Times with God
This is my number one! You get to have quiet times with God all by yourself in different parts of this God-created world! Traveling is the ultimate form of appreciation towards the Earth God has created. Visiting natural and men-made locations that are spectacular gives us a better appreciation of what God either created or allowed men to create. God is good all the time!
I hope you enjoyed all of the reasons why you should definitely travel solo at least while you are single. have fun and start planning!
All the Love!
