The Art of Solo Travel

A lot of people tell me that they admire the fact that I travel alone. For me, this is quite normal. Let's talk about it.

Ah, the solo adventure, where you're the captain of your own ship, navigating the seas of discovery all by your lonesome. There's a certain allure to it, isn't there? I want to start with the pros that apply to pretty much everyone, before I go into my personal reasons for solo travel.

Total Freedom

Want to wake up at noon and have pancakes for dinner? No problem. When you're solo, the only schedule you're on is your own.


Ever heard the phrase "finding yourself"? Well, solo travel is like a crash course in self-discovery. You'll learn more about yourself in a week than you might in a year at home.


Fancy taking a detour to that quirky museum you just stumbled upon? Go for it! No need for group consensus or compromise.

Meeting New People

When you're on your own, you're more approachable. Plus, there's something magical about striking up conversations with strangers in far-off lands.

Personal Growth

From navigating foreign transit systems to dealing with unexpected setbacks, solo travel teaches you to be resourceful, resilient, and downright unstoppable.

Tailored Experiences

Every adventure is custom-built to suit your tastes and interests. Love ancient ruins? Spend all day exploring them. Not a fan of modern art? Skip the contemporary museum without guilt.

Increased Confidence

Conquering challenges on your own boosts your confidence like nothing else. Suddenly, that big presentation at work doesn't seem so daunting.

So, there you have it, the world is your oyster, and when you travel solo, you're the pearl in the making.
