Travelling is an activity loved by almost everyone. Travelling comes with new experiences, lifetime memories and learning many new things. Travelling is a profession for many and a passion for many. Whether it is with a family, love partner, friends or alone, every trip brings out something unique and memorable.
Trips are planned both within the country and outside the home country as well. Sometimes just a few hours drive to a weekend gateway as well. Trips and their itineraries depend on the people you are travelling with, the destination, duration of the trip, and travel time. For example, special trips are planned mostly, and offers are provided during the holiday season, where students get vacations, and working adults get the national holidays.
Travelling with someone or many known people can be fun, so can be solo trips. Solo trips or solo travelling is when an individual plans a trip alone and enjoys it alone. Solo trips are an excellent opportunity for an individual to explore their destination and themselves as well.
Psychology says that spending some good quality time by themselves opens up the scope for individuals to identify who they are as a person or how their personality is. It does not mean you cannot explore yourself in the company of others, neither it means you can only learn about your true self by travelling solo. Solo trips are one of those unique ways to learn new things by yourself.
Benefits of travelling solo:
- You get the opportunity to meet new people, explore new culture and experience new activities all by yourself.
- You get to step out of your comfort zone; you learn to solve problems or come up with ideas by yourself. It is a kind of improving your problem-solving skills.
- You can plan your budget however you want, as you are the only one travelling, so you have complete freedom in choosing places to stay, eat, or activities.
- It is mentally satisfying. Sometimes every individual needs their own space to dedicate the entire time for themselves only. This is in the case of those working adults bound by a regular daily life schedule, whether it is their work or even housework and managing family. Staying in the same environment and bound by the same routine for a long time causes stress. A solo trip can be relaxing and is ideal for a change of mind.
Trips with family, friends, colleagues, or spouse is a great experience itself that cannot be compared to any other leisure time. Moreover, solo trips are also a great way for dedicating something just for yourself. Embracing one’s self enhances better mental health and mood.
