I recall my first solo trip like it happened just yesterday! My first solo trip happened the last year 2016, end of September to SEYCHELLES. After getting myself a job, slogging through it like every other corporate slave I really did think I deserved a break and I have always wanted to experience a place all by myself. Why did I do that? How did I have the courage? My Inspirations? Was it safe? How did I choose where to go? So many questions but I will give you reasons why it is important to go out of your comfort zone and travel alone at least once in your lifetime.
- You don’t need to work according to anyone’s likes, dislikes, timings, etc.It’s true! You have complete authority and freedom to choose where/ what/ how you want to plan your trip. Forget compromising, forget an itinerary where you have to accommodate someone else points of interest. Just wear those adventure shoes and set on your journey. ( All you planners should avoid planning and attempt at going with the flow)

Super interesting that come from different walks of life!

There is so much that you can experience but my words won’t do any justice. It is an experience to be felt, to fall in love with; but more than that, fall in love with yourself! 🙂
