LIFE IS AN ADVENTURE
I LOVE to travel. To immerse fully in the culture, to really engage with the local people, sample the cuisine, dance along to their favourite music…
When I am travelling, exploring, connecting – THAT is when I feel most Alive & Inspired.
Travelling offers so much more in the way of experience and perspective.
I believe it truly broadens the mind.
Even when you travel SOLO – as I often do.
It is not as weird or as scary as you might think. Sure, it may feel a little daunting as you plan your first solo adventure, but I can promise you – you will not regret it.
I consider myself an experienced solo traveller these days and so it really doesn’t scare me at all. Does anything ever go wrong? Hell yes! But I live by the mantra ‘Life is an adventure’ and that comes in to play quite beautifully during those moments of ‘misadventure’.
For me, it seems to eliminate any inclination to panic and instead just deal with the situation in hand without over-reacting.
Travelling solo provides so much freedom & flexibility to do whatever you wish, and to change your plans based on experiences while you are there. I really enjoy having the time to explore, reflect and do my own thing. And just because I travel solo, it doesn’t mean I spend all of my time alone. Quite the opposite in fact. I have met the most amazing people on my travels. Some I have dined with, others I have spent the day exploring with, some I have laughed with until I cried, and on one occasion, I even cancelled my scheduled flight home from Thailand, in order to travel onwards with my new friends and spend an extra 10 days discovering Bali.
Did I mention freedom and flexibility?
Now let’s be honest. There are some people out there who think that it is ‘odd’ or ‘sad’ to travel solo. I can assure you that I am NOT one of them. On the contrary, I think it is probably the greatest gift you could ever give yourself.
