While travelling is a moment of leisure and relaxation for many people, my travel story describes a different version of travelling. Many people prefer travelling in groups with their families and friends, while my first solo getaway was indeed a life-changing moment for me.
The alone time I got for myself helped me attain peace of mind. I explored many places and in the process found myself.
Before that, I had always been accompanied by my family or friends. But travelling alone proved to be a much more exciting proposition. The jitters were there, but the journey of self-discovery led me to believe that solo travelling rejuvenates both the body and mind.
Travelling on my own
My life-changing travel moment was when I was going to Hong Kong on my own. It was very thrilling and exciting as it was first my solo trip. Travelling without anyone has a different feeling altogether.
Travel for me is pure happiness, unadulterated and unconditional. It resonates with my spirit and is truly the best feeling in the world.
The alone time I got for myself helped me attain peace of mind. I explored many places and in the process found myself. Usually, when travelling in groups, there was always a planned itinerary according to which everything was done. However, this time, there was no itinerary, and I visited places at my own pace and experienced an altogether distinct version of travelling.
A Travel Tip for everyone
At all times, keep your documents with yourself, be it your passport, visa, or other identification materials. Keep it in a safe place, because if they are lost, you'll find yourself stranded in a foreign destination. Especially while travelling alone, your sole responsibility is towards your safety.
