“I’m Not Actually Ever Alone”
One of the biggest caveats of traveling alone is that you’ll be, well, alone. Apparently, solo travelers are a lot less alone that we actually think. The experience opens up the opportunity to meet new people. Sometimes, it helps you flip your definition of lonely.
“While my first solo adventure served its purpose in that it got me to face myself in a way I never had after the ending of a long-term relationship, it also taught me a ton about relationships and human connection… and that I’m not actually ever alone,” said Sahaj Kohli, a travel essayist for The Huffington Post. “I’ve noticed there’s often something missing from most conversations regarding solo travel: The people you encounter along the way.”
