7 Reasons to Travel Alone This Summer

For some people, summer is the time to catch up with family and friends, and make travel plans with them. However, summer is also the perfect time to actually catch up with yourself!

Now, if you don’t have any travel buddies, why not just go solo and travel alone this summer?  Here are 7 reasons why you should travel alone this summer!

1. You’ll have time to reflect.

Sure, it’s fun to be with family and friends, but sometimes, you really do need to spend some time alone—so you can reflect on the state of your life, and consider making changes, if necessary.

2. You’ll get to reconnect with your surroundings.

Going to one place on your own — say, Boracay — can help you really be one with nature. When you’re with other people, you’d just talk about mundane things; but by being alone, you’d feel the grace of nature—and how it was all created for you to bask in its glory.

3. It will be easy to stay within budget.

When you already know where to stay in Boracay, it will be easier to plan where you’ll use the rest of your money. You can then prepare an itinerary, and allot a budget for the rest of your stay, and make sure that you stay within the budget — because since you’re alone, you know you will have no one to borrow money from.

4. You can meet new people.

It’s so easy to alienate other people when you are with your own crowd. But, when you’re alone, you tend to get a new perspective on things, and on people, too. You’ll feel free to meet others and make new friends — friends who can teach you a new thing or two that can benefit you this summer, and maybe even for the rest of your life.

5. You will be able to get out of your comfort zone.

When life becomes too comfortable, you start to feel everything becoming boring and monotonous — and that’s not really the kind of life that you want to live. By travelling alone, you can get out of that comfort zone and challenge yourself to do activities you probably haven’t done before!

6. You’ll have stories to tell.

Just imagine how curious your family and friends would be about your solo adventures! Imagine the delight in their faces when you tell them that you’ve gone parasailing, or that you got buried in the sand! Basically, they’d see this new version of you — and you’ll feel good about it.

7. You can do what you want, when you want to.

The best part about traveling solo? You’d have no one to tell you that you shouldn’t try snorkeling because it might be dangerous, or that you shouldn’t go to that late night party! You can finally do what you want — and enjoy your trip the best way possible!

Don’t make this summer monotonous and boring. Do something new — travel alone, meet new friends, do what you want, and surely, your summer would be a remarkable one!
