Light on the pocket
Traveling solo is a very cost-effective manner of traveling. If you travel with your friends or your family, it tends to get rather expensive. You cannot just simply buy one milkshake and then share it with six other people. Traveling solo is very cheap, as you decide the budget, what to eat and where to sleep. When you are alone on a trip you can simply get lunch at any roadside café or even eat while you explore the new place. You do not have to worry about the likes and dislikes of other people, just what you are comfortable with.
You completely depend on yourself
When you choose to travel with other people or a group, the decisions taken are not always what you want to do. Majority rules there. But when you are all alone, you can do what you want to do and spend your time the way you choose to. If you want a relaxing afternoon, you can just lay out on the beach and enjoy your exotic drink or if you are sportier then you can go for a hike. You simply travel by your own rules.
It becomes easier to meet new people
When you are traveling with someone else you tend to stick by them and do not feel the need to interact with other people. But when you travel solo, you all deemed to interact with people around you and make new friends. It’s a normal practice that people try to help solo travels and come and chat with them but in a group, you just seem too busy or unapproachable.
You get to discover yourself
Traveling solo is great exposure, you become more responsible as you are the only one making decisions. At the back of your mind, you know that if you make the wrong turn it will mess up your whole vacation. You explore all on your own and wander about, by your own will. This all helps you get to know yourself better and helps you find your true purpose. It is like an escape for your soul.
Your language skills get better
When you travel alone, you have to interact with people around you and they might not always speak or understand your native language. In order to get help and communicate with people, you have to learn phrases and words in the other language. There isn’t anyone in your group that is going to help you out in case of an emergency, because hello, you are alone.
