Travel is more an inward journey rather than an outward journey. While it is fun to go with friends, the people you love and your family – there is some soul searching and finding that happens. When you travel alone there are many things you discover about yourself and the things around. Here are some of them:

1. Meet new people
The good thing when you travel alone is that you are ready to talk to people more than you would do when you travel with others. There are new friends to make and things to learn from colourful personalities along the way.
2. Do an don’t do what you want
When you are alone travelling, you have complete freedom to stop and explore what you want as there is no one to hurry you up. If there is something that you do not want to do, you have complete freedom not to do it. Travelling alone is more fun as you can travel on your own terms.
3. Feel the independence
There is immense freedom which one can enjoy while travelling alone. The challenges may be immense, but at the same time it allows one to travel to new places on their own. You have the freedom to walk, run, rest or even push rocks while travelling.
4. Discover your inner self
Besides being a journey to a place, it is also a spiritual trip. One grows as a person becoming stronger and evolving as a traveller. The challenges that one comes across along the travel route help one become a gritty person.
5. Mental boost
When you have travelled on your own and made it to new heights it gives a fillip to your confidence. You grow as a person becoming stronger realising that you can do many things which you thought earlier you were unable to do. There is a testosterone boost for the traveller which helps one get ready to take more travels alone and become an explorer.
6. Alone Time
There is the chance to sit in the lap of nature and enjoy the fresh air. The wind blowing in your hair and walking down the path with just your mind and the thoughts in it is a wonderful feeling. With our hectic lives and things around us which does not let us have alone time, a trip on your own allows you this chance which was otherwise not available.
7. Travel better
There is no change in travel plans which happen suddenly because of fellow travellers – you are boss and can do what you will. Travelling becomes better and more fun when all alone. One gets a chance to learn more and become a better traveller learning some of the hacks when alone.
8. Do more for less
When one person is all on their own, all the rates are low as one has to only pay for themselves. You can do things at your own pace and also get good deals while travelling.
