While you may discover solo travel by chance — because you don’t have anyone to travel with when you have the time and the money to go — you will likely do so again by choice. After all, solo travel is all about you.

There are practical perks to solo travel.

  • You do what you want, when you want. You’re on your own schedule.
  • You’re free to meet locals and other travelers — and, because you’re alone, it happens often and easily.
  • You’re able to focus on the destination and all it offers without distractions.
  • You enjoy periods of quiet for reading, art, reflection… you have as much downtime as you want.
  • You follow your own interests, be they bungee jumping or combing archives.
  • You receive special treatment as locals often go out of their way to enhance your solo travel experience.

Okay, maybe some of the above can apply to those traveling with a companion as well, but when you travel solo they definitely apply.
