Would you want to travel the world far and wide, but ONLY with someone on your side?

Or would you rather travel and travel alone, cause you find joy in being on your OWN?

Traveling Alone or With a Companion is an individual’s choice. While some find joy only in the company of others, others like  to be on their own. Each has its own advantages and as the two sides of a coin, there is also a downside to both. A real traveler knows it all, but for those traveling for the first time, it could be a tough choice to make. While it has a lot to do with the nature and preferences of an individual, sometimes weighing the pros and cons can help one make a better choice. For, it doesn’t matter whether you travel alone or in a group, what matter is that you travel and that gives endless joy.

TRAVELING SOLO

A preconceived notion about Solo travelers is that only introverts and the not so social ones travel alone. This is anything but the truth. While an introvert would definitely enjoy traveling alone, extroverts would realize that solo travel would offer them an experience like none other.

Solo travel is not only for introverts. Solo travel is for everyone.  Solo – the word itself shouts ‘Freedom’. It’s only you, therefore it is up to you to plan according to you, go wherever you want to, whenever you want to, and with whom so ever you want to. When you travel alone, you’re more open to your surroundings and have experiences that leave you richer and happier. You drop the shackles and meet new people and make life-long friends. You’re free to do things according to you and there’s no stopping you from living your dream. You can have your favorite menu, hang out at your favorite place, have your own travel techniques. You interact with more people around you which makes you involved with that place even more.

But, you need to be mature enough to be able to make such decisions as where to go, when to go, and with whom to go. Also if you are a shy person then you might not be able to interact with the people around you, which will cause you to feel lonely. You’d need to double check everything and be prepared for any emergency, cause no matter how much fun it is, you’re all on your own.

Who likes to travel alone? Traveling with someone you know, whose interests are same as yours completes every travel experience. It is always good to have someone beside you in the journey.

You won’t feel alone while traveling to a new place, as you will be with someone whom you know very well. You can share your expenses, your food, your stuffs, and well you will even be sharing memories with each other. It is always good to see so many smiling faces in a photo frame. You can have pranks on each other, click thousand of groupies, and chances are that this might even make your relationship stronger.

But being with the same person all the time, 24 x 7 , might be a little annoying. You are dependent on your companion. You can’t make decisions of your own, as you are traveling with companion, decisions must be in favor of all ( even if you dislike it ). This creates fights and the trip turns out to be a nightmare.

How you travel is your personal choice. But what matters is that you travel to new places, explore, wander, and escape.
