One of the most common questions that I have been asked about from the girls who really want to travel but have no one to accompany them. Most of the girl’s friends either aren’t interested or don’t get leaves or can’t afford it- and thought of travelling Solo put them in dilemma. But it doesn’t need to be!
The next time you’re tempted to go on a trip with your bestie by your side, think again. There are plenty of reasons why a girl can venture off Solo every once in a while. And if you have never traveled alone, this is the time to take a trip Solo. Read on to find out why every girl needs to travel solo at least once:
Boosts Confidence !!!
Girls who wander solo can learn to do everything themselves without depending much on fellow traveler. From selecting a meal to hailing a taxi, from taking a bus to hiking to the unknown, from opening a door to navigating around an unknown place at 4:00 in the morning; girls get to learn how to watch after themselves in more responsible manner and stand up for oneself. It is said that girls who travel solo tend to be more confident and carry positive attitude.
Pays off in Long Run !!!
Travelling might cost a bit on your bank balance, but the benefits from taking a solo expedition once in a life could teach new things, or actually end up making you money in the long run. Traveling solo can help give your career a boost and might end up in a pay raise. Moreover, increased exposure to various culture and people helps in creating a good network. The solo trips can also be added into your resume increasing your job skills.
Give Freedom a Chance !!!
Girls who travel solo, they don’t hold any responsibility to anyone. The schedule, choices, food, clothes- it is your vote that counts. It is all up to you what you do, when you wish do, and where you want to go. You can wake early or sleep late. This will be the only time in your life that you will not be beholden to anyone. It is all about freedom.
Makes You Adapt to Everything Unexpected !!!
Traveling solo is filled with moments and opportunities that cannot be controlled. At times flights get delayed, rerouted or even cancelled, and there are no other means of transportation left. Rooms aren’t available in hotels and much more. When you travel solo, you learn to adapt to everything, go with the flaw, find a way out and make things work.
Teaches More about Yourself !!!
Every time when girls travel solo, they discover their weaknesses and strengths. You get to learn to handle things easily, and get aware to the hurdles that are more of a challenge. The self-discovery is harder to explore when you are in your comfort zone, but traveling solo gives plenty of opportunities to bring new things in one’s life.
Allows You to ditch the Comfort Zone !!!
Travelling solo help the girls to get over themselves and out of their comfort zone. In return, their comfort zone becomes bigger, making them more comfortable and at ease with different situations and circumstances, and can be just as easy as your living room as you are in a dirt hut in the rainforest.
It Helps in making New Friends !!!
When someone travels with a group of friends, it’s too easy to be lazy and somehow put restrictions to never engage with the local culture and tradition, and other travelers around you; it gets much easier to rely on those traveling with you. But when a girl who travels solo can have plenty of opportunities to make new friends and surround herself with people who stretch their boundaries, ideas, and mindsets. Besides, who would not like to make a new friend or two?
It Teaches to work on Budget !!!
Traveling solo makes the person responsible and give control over their finances, time and energy. One can learn to manage their budget in different ways, from food to lodging, from transportation to shopping- the habit of budget keeping teaches a lot in life. As a matter of fact, a girl who travels solo can learn few tricks and techniques on how to travel the world when there is not much money in hand. This is an important life skill for any women to have, no matter what the job is or age they are.
It Teaches to Move On !!!
Each of us experience disappointment in life, and girls are no exception to the rule. Whether you’re facing disappointment in your career field, end of a relationship or a rejection of some kind; travelling solo gives time to heal, process and reevaluate one’s life. Taking a break and moving away from all such negativity can clear one’s head, inspire to do something new and helps in finding new goals.
Solo Travel Makes You Happier !!!
Studies show that people who spend their money and time on experiences rather than physical things are happier than those who spend the same amount on new smartphones rather than a trip to an exotic destination. Likewise, girls who take time to travel solo tend to be happier and are likely to travel more and more.
