Recently I have fallen in love with travelling on my own. It may seem a little strange; I have plenty of friends who are utterly perplexed as to why I do it? So here are my top 5 reasons why you should venture out on a solo female adventure..
1.ITS INCREDIBLY EMPOWERING
Once you get over perception of the uncomfortably eating meals on your own or feeling like your going to get lonely you can embrace the power than comes with femininity and solo female energy. There is a beautiful sense of achievement in planning your experiences to precisely what you’re after, and actualizing them completely on your own. Perhaps the most enjoyable aspects of solo female traveling are the random encounters that come with being a woman on an adventure.
2. IT MAKES TRAVELING SIMPLER
You’re not accountable to anyone but yourself. What you do, when you do and how you choose to do it is all up to you and I love that. It’s also easier to stay in budget as well as plan your own itinerary.
3. SELF REFLECTION
It’s exceedingly therapeutic to spend time on your own, with your own thoughts. I seem to find myself reevaluating different aspects of my life and positively planning for the future. Often time to myself allows me to engage with my spirituality and a deeper understanding of myself.
4. INDULGE IN YOUR INTERESTS & HOBBIES
Without the distractions of other people you can really focus on the things you enjoy. Whether its photography, drawing or just a good book, time to your self is often the most valuable opportunity to engage with your creativity.
5. PUSH YOU OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE
Often when you travel with people, they are you safety net. But when you travel alone you don’t have that comfort zone. This can be extremely liberating and push you to do more and experience more, whether its adrenaline activities or simply socializing and meeting new people. This can often lead to enriching and valuable encounters and interactions.
