Whether a wellness weekend with your best friend, a Caribbean trip with your partner, or camping with the whole family: Holidays with others can be great. But it’s just as worthwhile to break with the routine and start the next trip alone after completing your IMPROV ho 5ur course.
Reasons you should travel alone
You are responsible for yourself
If you are traveling alone, you do not have to get involved in annoying discussions or compromises, you can do what you want. Only you set the pace and the stations of your trip – and you can spontaneously throw your plans overboard.
You get to know new people
One of the main reasons that prevent many women from traveling on their own is the fear of feeling alone. But traveling solo doesn’t mean you will be alone all the time. On the contrary: single travelers are more active in seeking contact with others and are sure to get to know a lot of nice people.
You learn a lot about yourself
When you travel alone, sooner or later you will be forced to grapple with yourself. Many women only become aware of what they really want when traveling, what is important to them, and that they are only in good company with themselves on a solo trip.
You come back with a great degree of self-confidence
Anyone who travels is automatically confronted with unexpected situations. Whether it is a missed flight, communication problems with locals, or lost valuables: Instead of relying on others, single travelers take full responsibility for themselves, have to face confrontations, and solve problems on their own. The experience of having successfully mastered a challenging situation alone boosts self-confidence enormously.
You gain a new perspective on travel
Sure, vacation makes you happy. But a solo trip can change your understanding of travel in the long term. Because you perceive the cities and countries that you discover on your own in a completely different way than when you are with someone. Solo travelers are more open to new impressions and foreign cultures, after all, they experience the new environment detached from the opinion of others, who may perceive them differently.
