4. You Can Always Change Your Plans
Again, by traveling with someone you are always dependent on what everyone else wants to do and to make time to accommodate everyone’s interests, you will probably have to skip a few of your preferred activities. But this won’t happen if you are alone – you can change your plan in the middle of the day and everything will be just fine.
5. You Have Financial Control
First, it is always easier to find cheaper solo travel deals, because you control the dates in which you want to travel and you can pick the cheapest fares. Second, if you want to splurge and get a bedroom facing the ocean, you can.
If you want to save and get a bunk bed in the cheapest hostel in town, you also can. You get to choose how to spend your money, and that goes for everything during the trip.
6. The Experience Will Be More Intense
The memories we create from traveling with family or friends are precious, but they are always a little biased.
When we travel alone, the experience intensifies in itself, allowing us to step in and out of our comfort zone as we see fit, and giving us the chance to experience everything through our own filter and through our own eyes. Those memories belong just to us, and that is also pretty special. So, tips for solo travelers – be unapologetic about feeling great when traveling alone.
7. You Can Walk To The Sound Of Your Own Drum
By traveling all by yourself, you won’t have to accommodate anyone’s schedule and you will be able to pace your vacation days the way you see fit.
If you like to always run around and explore everything, do it; if you want to take a lazy day and just chill, treat yourself. You are on your own, and there is nothing and no one stopping you from enjoying your traveling time the way you see fit.
