Are you a traveller who enjoys being alone and exploring the world? Do you wonder if solo travelling is good for you? Then this article is for you! It’s all about why solo travelling can be good, from learning how to rely on yourself in new situations, to finding out what makes you happy when no one else is around.

Solo travelling is good, so you learn to rely on yourself.

You learn to rely on yourself.

When you’re travelling by yourself, there is no one else to blame if the plans don’t work out. There’s no one else to decide or organize things for you. You become more self-sufficient and confident in your own abilities as you explore new places and meet new people on your own. This can help you:

  • You’re more independent. You learn that it’s possible for a person with almost no friends or family support network (which is most people) can do great things without having someone there holding their hand every step of the way.
  • You’re organized because there’s nothing left but yourself! If something needs doing, then it’s up to YOU to take care of it. And if someone else wants an answer from YOU, then again…it’ll have come from YOU! This is good practice for any type of job setting where organization matters, like having deadlines met accurately without needing someone to tell when they need to be completed, etc…

You learn to be your own best company.

If you’ve ever been on a solo trip before, then you know how hard it can be to find the right balance between being alone and being lonely. Here, as with so many others in life, practice makes perfect. The more time you spend travelling alone, the better your ability to entertain yourself will become—and eventually, it’ll feel totally natural for you!

One of the most common misconceptions about solo travel is that it’s only for extroverts who like meeting new people. While this may be true for some people now and again (like when they’re feeling bored or homesick), there’s nothing about stopping introverts from making friends on their trips and during their travels back home. It just takes a little more effort on their part compared with those who are naturally outgoing, but if they put in enough effort over time, then there’s no doubt that these types will enjoy themselves thoroughly while overseas!

You learn to make new friends.

  • Meet people in hostels and guesthouses.
  • Make friends with the locals.
  • Hang out with people who share your interests.
  • Travel in groups of like-minded travellers.

You find out what really matters to you.

When you travel alone, you learn about yourself and your abilities. You find out what really matters to you. The solo traveller experiences challenges and adversity that can help them grow as a person. They learn how to overcome the obstacles they encounter during their travels, which strengthens them and makes them more confident in their abilities.

You also gain new skills or improve upon existing ones by spending time alone with just yourself or perhaps with one other person (like I did on my trip). The solo traveller learns they can do anything if they put their mind to it!

You do things that you never thought you could do before.

When you travel alone, you’re forced to be self-reliant. You have no one else to rely on and don’t have anyone to make decisions for you. This means that you will learn things about yourself that may surprise you – like how independent, adventurous and confident you are!

Solo travelling is a good way to learn more about the world – and yourself.

Solo travel is a great way to learn more about the world – and yourself. You can meet new people and learn about their cultures, or learn about yourself by doing things you never thought you could do before. For example, I was once terrified of heights and vertigo, but when I went to Peru for three months backpacking alone, I had no choice but to conquer my fear by trekking along Incan ruins with no handrailings or safety devices for support.

I also learned a lot about myself after my first solo trip abroad: I can go out on my own with no one else’s input; I’m able to make friends easily; and: if something goes wrong in one country, there will always be another place where everything will go right!


It’s time you get out there and explore. Solo travel is a great way to learn more about yourself and the world around you, while also meeting new people from all different backgrounds. So what are you waiting for? Pack up your bags and go!
