Traveling or doing anything alone can be seen as scary and many people do not have the courage to do so. Here at Astrid Solo Travel Advisor, we encourage it! Traveling alone and spending time alone is so refreshing and beneficial to personal growth. It allows you to see places you've dreamed of without constraint, meet locals, step outside of your comfort zone, and truly reflect.
Here are 3 reasons you should take a solo trip...soon!
1. Magic Happens When You Step Outside Your Comfort Zone
Visiting a new place is always exciting. Visiting a new place along is exhilarating. The majority of people fear traveling alone, so you'll be proud of yourself once you actually challenge yourself to do it. It definitely helps establish a sense of independence and adventure.
2. You'll Get to Know Yourself Like Never Before
I'm a firm believer that spending time alone is the only way you can really know who you are without the words, thoughts, and actions of others constantly influencing you. Your forced to be more observant and take more in. Traveling alone allows you to really spend time with yourself and get to know yourself
3. Make New Friends
Traveling alone doesn't mean you have to be alone. When traveling alone, it's easy to strike up a conversation with locals or fellow travelers. If you don't want to be alone the whole time you can stay at a Hostel, join a tour group, or simply speak to the person sitting next to you in a local restaurant. You'll be able to meet locals and possibly other like-minded travelers.
