I’ve been drooling to write this post, squarely because the topic hits my heartstrings in a woo-woo sort of way.
Safe to say we live in a world filled with influencers (and world-class travelers alike) serving platters of wanderlust photos for days.
However, most travel bloggers have photographers, assistants, husbands, etc. behind every photo (guilty of it). Additionally, they’re usually with other people.
Honestly it’s getting a tad bit ridiculous, those un-attainable luxury shots in massive resorts and whatnot.
Generally speaking, we’re wired to believe that vacations are best spent with other people (which is valid to a certain degree).
We also carry this negative notion that being alone in public (movie theaters, fancy restaurants, soirées, you name it) screams loneliness. Which leads to an unhealthy obsession with social dynamics (AKA caring about what people think).
…and here’s where I plead my case.
While family vacations and friendly getaways sound like the only viable options out there, traveling solo may actually offer more benefits than the latter two routes.
