In the compacted world of today, most of us are subjected to an environment that is over-populated. We are dictated to by our business and home-motivated schedules. This in effect means that to coin a phrase, we don’t have the time to smell the roses and are allowed to enjoy only limited freedom for our own benefit.
This leads us to find the time and means to enjoy another side of our lives. The part that is missing and becoming just a distant memory. For some of us, it’s a time for rediscovering and regaining who and what we truly are! It’s time to get the travel bug, pack a bag and bring some travel gifts from overseas!
Get Out of Your Comfort Zone
We are all in some form of a comfort zone, which also involves bowing to the whims and demands of others. For those living in this form of security it has become;
- A routine way of life
- Filled with pressure
- Constant consideration for others
- A people pressure cooker
It is also the means of losing our identities and forgetting that we are also important in the overall plan that is the Universe.
Rediscover Yourself and See Another Part of Life
You have a big world out there waiting for you to find it, to disconnect and rediscover life from your own perspective. If the thought is intimidating, especially if you’re a socially-oriented individual, make the effort to break away. This is the opportunity to experience some traveling alone fun and one of the happiest, satisfying and enlightening times of your life.
It can be a wonderful experience traveling with friends. However, for those seeking the freedom of relaxation and self-development embarking on a solo travel adventure could prove to be a life-changing experience.
On the Road Alone to Everywhere
Whether you are a male or a traveling solo female you are completely free; to do what you want. It means enjoying that wonderful sensation called FREEDOM!
It’s a generally accepted fact that traveling with friends can include:
- At least two-hours trying to determine the next destination.
- You may plan to explore things of interest to you
- Each of your companions could have their own preferences and bucket-list to complete.
However, when you’re traveling solo for the first time you will rediscover that sense of freedom by being able to occupy your time as and when you like.
- Wake up when you want
- Eat where and what you want
- Visit places of your choice
- Choose the environments you prefer
As you develop into your adventure, your inherent comfort zone will fade. You will rely upon your own capabilities and initiative. You will not have the supportive blanket of friends should you get lost in a new city or if your plans go wrong. What you will gain is self-confidence and a new perception of the world and the people in it!
Find Your Independence
Within our well regulated and organized worlds, we establish a dependence on certain crutches, such as those of a cultural nature. When you’re traveling alone they are no longer with you. This has the tendency of enabling you to feel and act less like a tourist and to quickly familiarize with the local population and scenario. The result is that you can expect to receive treatment that is more open and friendly and the elimination of loneliness.
Self-awareness or revelation can be emphasized during your traveling alone fun experience. Although you may not have continuous amazing episodes this adventure helps you discover who you really are. You can choose to visit places of interest such as;
- Local attractions
- Experience local customs
Time Alone is Quality Time
Being alone will enable you to fully enjoy and become part of each experience more fully. In addition, it makes even greater introspection. So used are we to being surrounded by people that we do not realize that we, as individuals, need some quality time, alone!
Admittedly, family holidays or romantic getaways produce memorable moments. However, traveling alone has the capacity to reveal unique experiences that would not be attained if considering the needs of a group. For instance, traveling solo means that you never know what revelation is waiting for you or who you will meet.
You have the opportunity to the experiences you want and which are created by those you meet, and who you are. From a local shopkeeper to a taxi driver or restaurateur being alone makes you more approachable and more interesting. In addition, you are now no longer just an ordinary tourist!
Try it, and you could find that it becomes a repeat experience.
