Perks of Being a Solo Traveler

Okay so, here you are with your backpack by your side wondering where to go next but wait what if he/she (your mate ) doesn’t wanna go there. So now instead of being excited about visiting new places, you start to worry about whether you should be going or not. Believe me, if you travel a lot you must have faced this dilemma and wondered what if you were to travel alone. This is a common issue with travellers and the thing is that we the travellers want to be free and not bound by any rules, but often we have to hold back from exploring things, eating unusual food, sleeping in odd places, meeting strange people and many more things which might sound odd but really are the highlights of any journey.


The solution to all this is just simple, Be a Solo Traveler and never worry about anything other than handy cash and some shady looking dude who’s been following you for probably too long and will mug you the moment you may seem deserted.

Let’s look at some advantages of being a Solo Traveler:

#Follow the road not the map

Don’t worry if you haven’t thought of a plan where to go next as something good will always come up your way. Share the routes taken by some Chinese or Korean group of travellers or just hop inside any random bus and enjoy the ride and hope you reach someplace great. Otherwise, you had a story to tell how you managed to escape those hooligans and why not to board buses going random places on just a whim. Feel the rush of not knowing what would happen next.

#Meet interesting people

Who wants to end up being the loner or the guy nobody talks to? Nobody, right! so when you are a Solo Traveler, you look for people to spend some quality time with. In that search, you end up with people from different backgrounds, cultures, lifestyle, and meet some amazing people and some bizarre ones too but that is what exactly makes it fun. You don’t get a lot of personal space when you are tagging someone along and you just miss
out on meeting some of the most amazing people.
