Solo Travel Quotes

  • “Solo travel is a great way to find out who you are.”
  • “I think the best way for a person to find themselves is to lose themselves in the service of others.” – Mother Teresa

Solo Travel Quotes 101:The journey not the arrival matters.

The journey not the arrival, matters.

Notepad with believe in yourself quote.
  • The journey is the reward.
  • The journey is the best part of your trip.
  • The journey is where you learn and grow as a person, so don’t rush it! It’s easy to get caught up in trying to find that perfect Instagram photo or having a great story to share when you return home from your trip, but remember that whether it’s an epic hike through a rainforest or wandering around an art gallery searching for inspiration, it’s all part of what makes travel worthwhile in the first place: taking time out of our busy lives and immersing ourselves in new cultures, people and places—and learning new things along the way.

Journeys are the midwives of thought. Few places are more conducive to internal conversations than a moving plane, ship or train.

The world is a big place, and there are many different ways to see it. While some people choose to travel alone because they want to be alone, others go for the experience of meeting new people along the way. Regardless of your reason for traveling solo—whether it’s a business trip or an adventure around the globe—there are many benefits that come from being on a journey by yourself.

The truth is that you should never feel like you have to justify why you decided to travel solo in order to have others understand or accept what you do. If someone thinks that your decision isn’t valid enough, they probably aren’t worth knowing anyway!

Forget safety. Live where you fear living. Destroy your reputation. Be notorious. I have tried prudent planning long enough. From now on I’ll be mad.

You don’t need to be afraid to live

You don’t need to be afraid to live where you fear living

You don’t need to be afraid to destroy your reputation

You don’t need to be afraid of being notorious.

solo travel quotes

Sometimes you never come back at all. Sometimes you go in a circle and get back to where you started after twenty years and you never even realize until it hits you in the face one day – whoa! I’m back!

You can travel the world and never come back.

You can travel the world and end up back where you started.

You can travel the world and not even realize it until one day, 20 years later, when it hits you in the face: Whoa! I’m back!

You need not be alone to have a solo adventure!

If you’re looking for a more traditional travel experience, there are plenty of ways to go it alone. You could travel with friends or family, on your own and in groups, or with a tour group. If you want the freedom to do what you want when you want but still benefit from some assistance along the way, joining a tour operator might be ideal for you: they offer various packages that include accommodations and activities at discounted rates compared to booking them independently. And if group travel is more your style—and it’s certainly easier for those who are less comfortable navigating destinations as individuals—then consider working with fellow travelers through forums such as Couchsurfing or Airbnb Hosts.


Take these quotes as your own, and use them to encourage yourself on your next solo adventure. You don’t need to be alone to have fun, so why not make the most of it?
