The adventurous grab the opportunity they get. Travellers are especially adventurous, looking to explore new places and meet new people. But it is not always possible for them to have a travel companion. So they travel alone. Lone travel is not for everyone. But it works for some people, so why not? It is a great chance to spend time with yourself, make new friends and explore. A lone traveller serves as an inspiration to the rest of us. They meet new people on the way and open themselves to new cultures. They know there are risks but are still willing to take the plunge.

The Element Of Excitement 

Lone travel is quite a unique experience. It makes you more aware of your surroundings and the people you interact with. You are more observant because there is no distraction. You don’t have to wait for anyone to get dressed before you go out and explore. You don’t have to negotiate the itinerary with anyone else. You are free to explore, taste and try anything!

There might a bad incident here or there, but lone travel is a great way to boost your self-confidence. There is absolutely no hurry to go anywhere. You can take your time to look at each place, one by one. The biggest benefit of lone travel is the trust you start putting in strangers. Because believe it or not, the world is a nice place.

The Disadvantages Of Lone Travel

Lone travel comes with its own set of risks. Google travelling tips and you will find numerous blogs advising solo female travellers about things to be aware of. The flip side of lone travel is not having someone to share the moment with. Discovering a new place, looking at a beautiful view or trying a local dish, a lone traveller does it on its own. This is especially true on a road trip when sharing driving duty with someone is a blessing.

Travelling anywhere alone poses risks. You are essentially in a strange, new place without any support structure. But that has never deterred lone travellers. They, in fact, enjoy the experience that comes with new places. What is a little risk in the face of rewarding life experiences? 

The Benefits 

Lone travel is not all risk and danger. The experience that comes with solo travelling is priceless. New people, places, and cultures make one more open minded and accepting. A lone traveller becomes more approachable and is more likely to approach more people in new places. It’s a win-win situation, for the most part. Travelling solo is also a great way to come out of your shell.

Curiosity is often the driving factor behind such solo trips. The perfect example of lone travel is shown in Kangana Ranaut’s Queen. Although her trip wasn’t motivated by curiosity, she still travelled alone. On the way, she opened up and made new friends despite the language barrier. She ended up cracking really lame jokes while in Amsterdam. The whole experience turns her into a completely different person. Lone travel is maybe not for the faint of heart. But if you are willing to take the plunge, it is definitely a once in a lifetime experience.
