There are endless reasons why I love solo travel. Since most people are curious why and how I've been traveling the world by myself for decades, I've compiled a list of some of the reasons why this type of travel is so appealing to me.
Read the first installment here and keep reading for even more reasons why I relish solo travel.
Solo travel increases my capacity to love, be tolerant and compassionate in the world.
Staying on top of worldwide trends and new ways of doing things and thinking is at the top of my list when traveling by myself. I feel it keeps me young, alive, and continually growing as a person.
It satisfies a life goal to travel to all of the continents. My husband is not interested in world travel anymore. If I am to accomplish this goal, I have to do it solo.
My sense of independence grows with each trip I take. Solo travel strengthens my confidence which helps me be more comfortable in my close personal relationships.
Traveling solo has made me more tech-savvy. Through building Astrid Solo Travel Advisor, I’ve discovered what it takes to build a digital brand, and found many tech-related platforms to use along the way.
I love to have fun. Travel is always fun and exciting for me and it keeps me happy.
Solo travel strengthens my ability to be comfortable alone. To be able to be content by yourself is very important in life.
I’ve become more patient and have strengthened my problem solving skills throughout my travels. Problems always arise on solo trips, so I’ve learned to do plenty of pre-trip planning and to always be prepared to solve unexpected problems.
As I always say, “Live in the moment!” Enjoy where you are and what’s happening to you during each trip, whether it’s good or bad.
Traveling provides me with new ideas on how to improve and live my life on a higher level: more simply but still sophisticated.
- Traveling the world solo strengthens my sense of faith. You have to exercise faith to understand its power, and solo travel helps you develop a deeper understanding of what to have faith means.
