Solo traveling

Why it suits me



“You’re so brave to travel alone”…”It must be daunting to travel by yourself”…”You must get so lonely solo traveling”…”Just the thought of going somewhere by myself puts me off”…”I could never travel by myself” …”How do you do it?”…”It must be so hard!”
These are just some of the things that have been put to me about solo traveling over the years. The thing is, it’s not just me but every solo traveler I know has had the same or similar said to them.

Not another solo traveling post!
Since I dipped my toes into this world of blogging, I’ve been reading a lot more posts than I normally would and a of a lot of them are about solo traveling. A lot of them are, ‘Why you should only solo travel.’, ‘Solo traveling is the only way to travel.’, ‘How awesome solo traveling is.’ ‘The ultimate guide to why solo travel is the best.’ or ‘5 reasons to solo travel!’…So on and so on…

Before I go any further let me say this – This is not one of them, nobody should tell you how to travel, you should travel how you feel best to. There is no right or wrong way to travel. At the end of the day solo traveling isn’t for everybody, some prefer to travel in groups, with friends or even with family. And that is just fine.

This post is not me saying my way is the best, I’m just writing why and how it works for me…That’s the beauty of traveling, you do it your way.
