Traveling alone can be an incredible experience of being able to do what you want to, when you choose to, and to change your mind at the last minute (knowing you are not affecting anyone else). But solo travel can also be a lonely, frustrating, and scary time without another’s help, advice, and loving care when you need it the most.
Solo Travelers include free spirited individuals who prefer to travel on their own; single parents traveling without a partner with the full responsibility of their children resting on their shoulders; divorced men or women wanting to get away from their home town, choosing to travel and “find themselves” away from the painful memories they would’ve encountered on a daily basis… People choose to travel solo for many different reasons.
Whatever your reason is, you can find lots of guidance, help, and encouragement in the awesome website below (more website links to come…).
Safe, peaceful, and memorable travels to you!
