Solo female travel benefits

I love to travel alone , exploring the world alone allows you to experience an unmatched sense of freedom. The benefits of solo travel are limitless. Travel means different things to different people, but it’s almost always empowering. 

1. You’ll experience unfettered freedom

Without a travel partner to accommodate, as a solo female traveller you’ll have full control over where you eat, where you stay and what you do. Everything is done on your schedule. Pizza for breakfast? Why not. Sleeping in until 11am one day and waking up at 5am the next? Sure! With only your whims (and itinerary) to answer to, you’ll feel a sense of freedom that’s hard to find elsewhere.

2. You’ll make friends

It’s a common misconception that solo travel is synonymous with loneliness. In fact, it’s often easier to make friends as a solo traveller than travelling with others. Solo travellers tend to find one another and are often seen as more approachable than couples, families or groups. Travelling alone forces you to strike up conversations with new people, translating into new friendships, connections and skills you can take home once the trip ends.

If you’re nervous about travelling alone, go solo on an organised group tour, where you’re bound to make friends. You can also easily schedule a group tour in the midst of a long journey, if you want to break your solo-time up.

3. You’ll learn to trust yourself

Embarking on a solo travel trip means that you have to rely on your own intuition and problem-solving skills to figure out the logistics of travel. But after a few days ironing out any problems you encounter on your own–and there are bound to be a few–you’ll develop a real confidence in your abilities to adapt to changing situations. 

4. You’ll find clarity

When you travel alone, you’re more likely to have the ability to experience solitude without the pressure of work or relationship obligations. In an age where we are just one quick text message, swipe or double-tap away from human interaction, time spent alone without distraction is becoming harder to come by. You can let your mind wander as you hike the Camino de Santiago, stand before the Taj Mahal, or gaze into the Grand Canyon. Who knows what revelations you’ll have without routine or interruption.

5. You’ll travel more

If travel is your passion, solo travel unlocks endless possibilities. Without limiting your travel experiences to the budgets and schedules of others, you’ll also be able to travel as often as your lifestyle allows.
