Why Solo Traveling is the best way to discover yourself?

For some, the idea of travelling solo, heading out into the wide world on their own, might be daunting or scary. But those who have been travelling without a companion will all tell you the same thing: it’s one of the most exhilarating, educational and wonderful experiences you’ll have in your entire life.

From making new friends to exploring new cities and learning new languages, there’s nothing quite like seeing the world for yourself. Here’s why travelling alone is so important in this day and age:

Travel is education

When you’re engaging with other cultures, speaking in new languages and discovering new parts of the world, you’re learning something new every single day. You might not realise it, but every moment you spend in a foreign country, interacting with new people and finding out about other ways of life, is a moment when you’re enriching your education. You’ll develop a truly open mind thanks to all of the new things you’ve learned on your travels.

Your confidence will increase

Now look at these notes. Do you see a pattern? Are they mostly regrets, fears and bad experiences? Or are they goals, dreams and fantasies?  Do they revolve around other people or just yourself? Do they all originate from a single, overriding emotion, belief or desire?

Arrange the sticky notes in a meaningful pattern. You might try grouping them into areas of life that make sense to you such as career, family, health and recreation. Or try making a timeline of events past, present and future.

Another way to arrange objects in your life map is in the form of a tree. Your name goes at the root or trunk of the tree, while items make the branches and fruit. It’s up to you. Give free rein to your imagination and creativity

 

You’ll get to know the real you

If you’re on a journey with a group of friends, everyone falls into familiar roles. You might be the joker of the group, or perhaps you’re the sensible one who handles the money and travel documents. But what if that isn’t the real you?

Travelling alone gives you the opportunity to explore your true self. Here at YOR, we offer a solo travelling plan, which allows you to dig deeper into your own personality and get to know yourself – the person you are when no one else is around. As part of the solo travelling plan, we’ll help you define your objectives of the trip, as well as guiding you through the entire experience, from the initial planning to the ‘welcome home’ party when you land.

You’ll discover your destiny is in your hands

In this dynamic new world we live in, travelling solo is a great way to discover that the only person in charge of your destiny is you. You don’t need to be confined to an office to make a living, nor do you need to be stuck in a dead-end job in order to realise your travel dreams.
