  1. I agree that solo traveling while can have it's cons can be so much more rewardings. I mean you get to go on your schedule, your not having to worry about what others want to do and how long they want to do a certain thing. I think you gave great pointers on getting your solo trip started up.

  3. I love traveling alone. I find it super relaxing and I often find myself exploring things I wouldn't have done if I was traveling with someone else or in a group.

    1. I couldn't agree more, Ashley. With no restrictions from others, you are at the mercy of yourself to do as you please.

  9. Wonderful ideas. I loved hearing you say 99% of the people you see you won't see again. How true this is. I'm very heavy and in a wheel chair so I always think people are looking at me but, like you said it doesn't matter anyway. As for traveling solo I cannot but its ok my adult son is willing. My goal that I am now going to plaster on everything is to lose 20 pounds to be under 300. Several years ago I started at 376 so little by little.

    1. Hey Gladys! Yes, once I got over that fact, about the people, I started being more freer with myself. But major congrats to you on chipping away at that goal! I'm more than confident that you can do it!! Best of luck my dear!

  12. I’ve traveled alone a few times. It was intimidating at first but I really got to know myself and experienced new things without distractions. No I travel with my husband and my two kiddos And a dog. It’s a different experience but I love it!

    1. Yes, once you get over the initial hump of being alone, it gets so much better after that. At least you have those memories to look back on, especially now when traveling with family. Thanks for reading!

  13. I agree solo travelling can be really rewarding, I feel like it could give a sense of self-confidence and liberation to oneself as well as being a great learning experience. - Elizabeth O
