There is a big world out there & you don’t have to feel stuck in the tiny corner of your world. You do not need to ask for permission or wait for someone to tag along. Go seek adventure, and see who you can become.

Are you still scared to take this risk? How many times did you imagine yourself getting kidnapped during your trip? Are you going to cancel it because of your fears?

Don‘t worry, these are very common thinking of anyone who is planning to have the first solo trip of their life. Before going all pessimist about the trip, take a deep breath and gear up to dive into a pool of change and a whole lot of new experience.

If you are still scared, then here are five reasons to go on a solo trip at least once in your lifetime.

Getting out of Your Comfort Zone

If you are in your comfort, it’s time to move on. Terrified of what’s next? Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Solo travelling is not only an escape from your routine but also a chance to deal with your fears. Your fear of height, flying, or any adventure should not limit you. It’s good to try things when nobody is going to be there to judge you. Take one step at a time and you will overcome all your fears for life.

Taking responsibilities

When you are alone in a difficult situation, all your senses get alerted. You become more responsible for your decisions and choices you make to deal with that situation. Solo travelling makes you more courageous and self-aware. With this wisdom in life, your next chapter is going to be amazing.

Learning through People

Travelling solo does not always mean you are alone. You meet marvellous people along the way and make connections that last a lifetime. Making friends from different regions will broaden your mindset for different ethnicity and their culture. It will help you bring out you introvert out and speak your heart out without the fear of being judged. Different food, different language and different taste in music are like a cherry on the top for a solo trip.

Self Exploration

If you never go, you will never know

Solo travelling is like an investment in you. While travelling through mountains, meeting people, witnessing rarest species, and sitting under the sky full of stars, you will realize the vastness of this life and it’s beautiful. You will get to know about your fears, strengths, and limitations and most importantly, you will learn how to fly.

New stories for life

Fill your life with new adventures and new stories to tell. Solo travelling is all about experiencing moments which you have never experienced it before. It is about laughing at our falls and appreciates you for walking an extra mile on a trek. Don’t worry, at the end of your trip, you will have a lot of stories to tell your friends and boast about it.
