This is a resume of my article for the Thought Catalog.
1.You will build new friendships and meet new people.
When you’re traveling by yourself, you tend to team up with other like-minded people. Because you’ll bump into so many like-minded travelers, these travel buddies can actually become friends for life!
2. Nothing compares to the sense of Freedom you’ll experience
When you don’t have to meet a group criteria, you have the freedom to plan your trip the way you want it to be. You’ll have the freedom to change your mind, change your plans or even forget about planing and just go with the flow!
3. You’ll put your fears and insecurities to the test
Life only happens when you’re out of your comfort zone. Prove yourself you can do it! You’ll find out you’re much stronger and courageous than you thought you were!
4. You might find your soul-mate
Yes, when we’re on the road as solo female travelers we meet so many like-minded people who share the same passions, the chances to meet your soul mate is actually very high!
5. Recharche your batteries and pamper yourself
Indulge into the awesome local foods, explore the local natural therapies, get a massage or just enjoy a magical sunset
6. Recreate yourself b who you want to be
Be who you always wanted to be. You’re at a neutral space where people have no pre-conceived opinion about you. Explore parts of your personality you’re less familiar with, try things you’ve never dared. No one will criticize you!
7. Disconnect from the world
Life is too short, enjoy every single second of it while you’re away. Leave your problems behind, turn off your mobile, forget about the emails. Be your only focus.
