Travelling alone pushes you out of your comfort zone. When you have to book your hotels, tickets, tents all by yourself, you grow a lot more responsible and a little more proud of yourself. So, you may be a watching-the-sun-as-it-yawns-and-rises type of person or someone whose heart belongs in a quaint country cottage, either way, we urge you tie your shoe laces, pack your bags and just go. It is the inner journey that you undertake, in the depths of solitude, which is the truest gift solo travelling gives you.
