you have a sense of freedom independence. you want to eat breakfast at night then you do it. you dont have to consult with someone else and compromise. i do it sometimes even though i havent traveled far
you can do anything you want, you can live anywhere you want. Last time I traveled alone I passed all my nights in sea beach to save the money of hotel bills and spent those in shopping traditional handicrafts.
Solo travels biggest advantage is it forces you to meet more people its easy to get insular if you travel in a group or couple but after a couple of days of not speaking you soon lose your inhabitions met 10 x more people by being on my own than with a group, also you can set your own agenda. Want a lazy day by the beach or a trip to a museum its entirely up to you.
The freedom. You can while away your time, thinking of no other but yourself. Strike up conversation - or not. Retire early, or stay out late. Eat what you want, where you want. It's cheaper, in some ways more relaxing.
I love both singular travel and travelling with someone, both have their attractions. That said - I'd still travel alone again if I got the chance. I just love the peace
I love solo travel as well. It reminds me of this quote:
"Travel is the most private of pleasures. There is no greater bore than the travel bore. We do not in the least want to hear what he has seen in Hong-Kong"
You're just traveling and exploring. The world is yours and so are all your experiences. It is not easy to find someone who wishes to travel exactly like you and when you travel solo, you can do whatever you want.
I love traveling. There is definitely a difference in my experience when traveling alone. I love to learn about the culture of the place that I am traveling to, locals are more likely to come up and talk to a person if alone. I feel like I get to embed myself in the new culture for a week or two weeks. I have always had great experiences with this. In Scotland, I ended up going out with a group for Hogmaney, New Year's Eve in a small town where I was staying. The memories are priceless and I will never forget the people. Good luck deciding if going alone is the right choice for you!
I always travel alone. The only bad part about it is that i need to pay an extra fee because single travel is hard to find.Why can't some hotels have single rooms!!Why do i always have to pay for doubles!
Get a small trailer, a good pickup, a pocket fulla cash and spend yer life just knocking around. I've been doing it for years...alone! A smile and a hello will help ya make acquaintances fast. I love it when I'm trailer trash mixing with trailer trash. Some of my "trailer trash' friends are doing it with million dollar coaches and trailers. I'm retired and spend 6 months here and 6 months there. Follow the weather and life is grand! : Qwark
When and how does it end up that you have a lot of friends and then eventually you turn around and you are alone because you are not happy with yourself? Shouldnt that be a time where your friends are there the most?
Most people are tied down to the area they live because of their job. I have been lucky enough to work totally for myself on the web for the past 2 years. I don't make enough to be well off, but enough to pay my bills...
