Food And Travel Lifestyle


Written by Damini Sharma

Heading on a vacation solitarily is one of the fastest emerging travel trends among Indians, especially women and is making news almost daily! In this day and age where people are taking giant strides in the technological era; people have been sustaining themselves in a hectic life juggling family and work responsibility. Traveling alone is the panacea you need. Travelers claim that solo travel is the best way to see the world because you experience everything without dealing without anyone else’s prejudices, tastes or preferences.

As a novice, the very thought of strolling alone can be daunting but it sets you on a voyage of self-discovery. You can either spend your day doing nothing or hop from one city to another. You can loll on a beach or visit remote ruins. Neither do you have to worry about your fellow travelers nor do you have to line up to what others want from the vacation.

Traveling alone lets you welcome changes with open arms. You don’t have to fit into any group or anyone’s agenda, give explanations or even disappoint anyone. You can even alter your plans whenever you wish to and always stay independent. If you are venturing out for the first time, you are bound to be apprehensive of the anonymous but when you are on your own, you are more aware of your vicinity. After travelling alone you will become stronger and more confident about yourself.

Traveling solo is invigorating. As you interact with new people, your dynamics and conversations are deep and far more fulfilling. In addition to this, you gather time to pamper yourself silly, indulge in adventure sports, gorge on the local cuisines and so on. Countries like Costa Rica, Ireland and the Philippines aren’t expensive countries and are known to be safe for tourists. Lodging charges are nominal and you can simply halt at the countryside where people rent out a part of their house.

So, here I can wrap it up by just confessing that if you’ve been leading a stressful life, here’s when you take a break from work, colleagues, families, friends and spend time to make new friends and be with yourself.;)
