5 REASONS TO TRAVEL SOLO




My friends think I'm weird because I enjoy travelling alone.

I never plan to travel alone, things just happen (or should I say, don't happen) and I decide to do what works best for me. Never have I regretted those decisions.

Here's why I love it, and why I think you should take the plunge and travel alone...whether deliberately or not:

1. Your time is your own: You can do what you want to do at your own time...you alone dictate your every move. You can eat breakfast at 8am or 3pm; you can shop all day if you want, without someone complaining about their hip aching and rushing you out of the mall (side eyeing you Mandy); you can lay in bed all day doing nothing or read a book with the bedside lamp on till 3am. In summary, you alone decide what you want to do, when and how you want to do it.



2. Meet new people: I've made the most unexpected friends on my trips; some of whom I never hear from after and some that I still keep in touch with.

3. Time to relearn yourself: The best thing about vacations is I get time to be alone with myself. I try new things, eat new food, learn things about myself that I never knew and even remember things about myself I'd forgotten. Vacations remind me how much of an introvert I am and how much I love being with myself, I allow myself get lost in the quiet of my thoughts. I remember how much I love singing and dancing and pretty much performing like Queen Bey...all in my birthday suit. I also feel closer to God when I'm away, as I pray more when I'm on vacation. 

4. Be Spontaneous: You can take a day trip into the next city without wondering how any one would feel, go swimming at 1am and dance on your bed until you're dizzy. Whatever your mind can think up, you can do it as easily.

5. No Judgement Zone/Make bad decisions:Buy the $1,000 bag without being guilt tripped, eat a whole tub of ice-cream for lunch and a burger and fries for dinner without anyone making funny comments about you getting fat.  I love vacations because I allow myself indulge in a few too many treats; it's so much sweeter when no one's watching you pig out. 



I like travelling alone, what about you? Let me know in the comments :)

  1. I tried it for the first time recently and I must say it was exhilarating.I absolutely did me!!!I entertained my every impulses without inhibition and loved every minute of it. I had an initial fear of it being weird and awkward but now I see the light.I would definitely be doing it more often.

    1. @exhilarating, that’s the word!!! First time, I felt like everyone knew I was alone, so I was an easy target but I just made sure I was safe and the feeling went away. My solo trips are always sooo refreshing!

      Glad you feel the same way.
