12 Reasons Why Solo Travel Is The Absolute Best!

Travelling to far-flung destinations with your besties is a brilliant experience, but solo travel is on a whole other level.

1. Your time will be entirely your own
Having the time and freedom to do exactly what you want, when you want is one of life’s true luxuries. Want to spend the whole day relaxing in the sun, or soaking up some culture in one of the world’s best museums? Go for it! Your time is all yours!

2. You’ll feel empowered AF
You can do anything you put your mind to, and solo travel will prove this to you in a way that nothing else can.

3. It’s time to connect
The connections you’ll form can lead to some of the longest-lasting and meaningful friendships of our lives. You might meet your ultimate travel buddy, and who knows what adventures may lie ahead!

4. Oh, the places you can go
New experiences and perspectives will stay with you forever.

5. Discover a new passion
Because how do you know you love sailing or bungee jumping until you’ve given it a try?

6. You’ll learn to be your own best friend
By looking out for yourself and making good decisions, you’ll realise that you hold your future in your hands.

7. You’ll finally understand what all that gap year fuss was about
We’ve all got a friend who took a gap year before Uni who spent a lot of time describing how they ‘found’ themselves during that time. Well, it’ll all begin to make sense.

8. Your social media game will be SO strong!
Snapchat and Instagram your adventures all day every day.

9. The stories you’ll have to tell will be lit
We’re not saying that you should book a holiday just so you’ll have some brilliant stories to share with your friends, but no one likes not having anything to share during your monthly catch-up over drinks!

10. Say goodbye to your comfort zone.
With nothing holding you back, you’ll realise that you can flourish outside your comfort zone.

11. It’ll probably change your life.
Your increased confidence, new perspectives and an understanding of what’s really important will prompt you to make positive changes in your life once you get home. Whatever it is, you got this!

12. YOLO.
Using YOLO as an excuse to do something may not always be the right decision, but it absolutely is in this case! After all, life’s too short not to explore our beautiful planet.
