It’s certainly true that travelling is one of the best ways to rejuvenate, explore and revitalize your inner being. But the one thing that can go all out to provide an inexpressibly great experience is this one thing – Lone Travelling. Several people around the world go on globe-trekking sprees to explore the mystic beauty that the world has to offer. And the best part, lone travelling has its own share of perks that come along as a committed partner in crime.
1. Sense of Freedom
To start with, travelling alone gives you a sense of freedom, an unmatched responsibility to care about yourself, as you are all independent and away from friends and family.
2. Sense of No Compromises
When going out in a group, family, and friends or even with a partner, you tend to lose out on your individual tastes as you have to adhere to their schedules, tastes and preferences. This is not the case while travelling alone, as you can make your own plans, set timings and travel with your own pace.
3. Sense of Real-life Finances
A trip to the nearby club costs so much; a plate of noodles or momos costs these many bucks; you know all this math. But travelling to unknown, mystic places have no prior calculations laid out for you. Yes, you have your math in head already, but unforeseen expenses, delays, inflated prices are all part of travel, so you get to manage finances and learn to live on a fixed budget.
4. Sense of Handling Situations
Living in the hustle-bustle of the city, we are tuned to go office, meet friends, and play some sports and go back home. Amidst all this, it’s very unlikely to actually come under pressure and face all kinds of difficult situations, as our urban life hardly offers it. However, as a lone traveler, you are more prone to come to terms with difficult times and experiencing them prepares you to get geared up for the worst. Talk about learning life-lessons!
5. Sense of Self-awakening
You might need a cuppa of morning coffee, or a yoga session to be really refreshing in the morning; but a trip to a new place revitalizes your senses and gives you a much-needed break from routine life. It awakens your senses and refreshes your mind and soul. Travelling alone let’s you think from a different perspective about life, since you meet new people, cultures, traditions and yes, food!
