How does it feel to travel alone?


Because everyone has different goals, traveling with others requires compromise and sacrifice. When an itinerary cannot be agreed upon, the trip is canceled before it even begins. It is not the case when traveling alone. When traveling alone, your primary concern is achieving your goals so you can do whatever you want. If you want, you can spend an hour relaxing at the top of Angkor Wat. Do you want to be daring and travel to remote locations? You can, I repeat. When you travel alone, you are the star of your movie.

Meeting New People

Traveling alone increases your chances of meeting new people compared to traveling in groups. Many people will approach you and want to speak with you. I’ve spoken with a few Cambodians, one of whom works as a waitress in a night market restaurant. She was my age, and we talked about what it was like to live in Thailand and Cambodia. He told me about his trips to Southeast Asia and how he prepared for each one. Remote connections like these make the experience unique for a solo traveler because you seek them out to keep you company. You won’t get such a unique small connection if you come in groups.

Maintaining a present-oriented mindset.

I was visiting Banteay Srei, a remote temple in Cambodia. Because it was still early in the morning, there weren’t many tourists around. Because it was so quiet, I began to pay more attention to my surroundings. Birds chirping and the wind blowing leaves can be heard. That short walk around the temple was the most enjoyable I’d ever had. Without any external distractions, I became more aware of what I was doing, where I was, and why I was there. It is the pinnacle of my presence.

The ideal environment for personal creativity

Now that I’m back in Bangkok, I can tell you that my desire to work is stronger than ever. As a result of my solo travels, I’ve come up with a slew of business ideas for BucketListly Blog, and I can’t wait to get started. When I’m away from home, I broaden my horizons, reflect on my experiences, and try to make sense of the cultural differences between where I come from and where I’m visiting. These are the experiences you can only have when you’re alone with your thoughts in an unfamiliar setting.

You’ll get better at being yourself.

You may not realize it, but you have improved when you can force yourself to travel alone, take on challenges, and overcome your fears and negativity. You’ll make more informed and timely decisions. You’ll become more self-sufficient and less reliant on others. You’ll realize how crucial it is to believe in others. You’ll learn how to entertain yourself and stay connected even when you’re alone. You’ll learn to observe your surroundings and appreciate the little things. You’ll realize your concerns about the future and the inherent risk of leaping were unfounded.  You’re liberated now.

Everyone should travel solo once.

After my solo trip to Cambodia, I can confidently say that everyone should travel alone at least once in their lives. Nothing else even comes close. All that is required is 90% courage and 10% money. The experiences you’ll gain from traveling alone are far more valuable than the money you’ll spend. When you’re about to spend thousands of dollars on clothing or technology, ask yourself, “Would I rather invest in something I’ll probably throw away in a few years or invest in an experience that will last forever?”

To make the process easier, start your journey by going somewhere nearby where you can communicate in your native language. You will be less intimidated by the risk and preparation required in this manner. The hike to Everest Base Camp is one of my most epic memories. Here’s a long essay about my treks to Everest Base Camp: I’m on my way to Everest Base Camp. It is why I hike to commemorate each year I get older: On my 33rd birthday, I climbed Kilimanjaro.
