Travelling is a thing that every person loves, and it’s also one of the most rapidly increasing industries these days. The thing about the trend is that it always changes. Like for instance, a few decades ago, travelling alone seemed a farfetched idea. Since organized tours came into the fray, everyone thought it was the future of the travelling industry. And yes. To an extent, it has been true. Organized travel has always been in huge demand since its inception.
But in the last few years, the craze for solo travel is reaching new heights. People, especially teenagers are raving about the fact that travelling alone gives them the adrenaline rush that no organized travel can provide. There are pros and cons of travelling alone, but the pros far outweigh the cons.
So why is everyone so gung-ho about travelling alone?
One of the main attractions of travelling solo is independence. You can go anywhere you like without having to answer to anyone. The whole trip will be focused on you. Where you eat, live, stay or go is completely up to you. Moreover, you will decide your own itinerary. When you have a partner in your travel, you have to be in sync with them. If they decide to call it a day, you have to oblige with it. But such a scenario doesn’t arise when you are travelling alone.
On the other hand, travelling alone also has its cons. When you are travelling somewhere alone, you need to be aware of all aspects of the place, be it geographical, cultural and social. For people who don’t necessarily have these aspects covered often suffer after reaching their destination. Let’s assume that you are travelling somewhere alone, where will you live and eat? If you can’t answer these questions confidently, then maybe solo travel isn’t your cup of tea.
To each his own when it comes to travelling
It completely depends on you how you want your trip to be. If you want the company of your friends and family, then organized tours are the best option. On the other hand, if you are looking to achieve a peace of mind and just want to get away from the hustle and bustle, taking some alone time travelling picturesque locations can be extremely revitalizing.
In case you decide to go alone there are two options available. One option would be to hire a car, make the necessary hotel reservations and plan your itinerary. The other option, however, is a lot different. You can just take an RV and plan your travel along the way.
