Is It For You?

Today, the solo traveller is a ubiquitous sight at any tourist hot spot or outback trail. Travel companies are beginning to cater to the solo traveller, expanding their forte beyond family or group itineraries. We are bombarded by advertisements, memes and more on the benefits of traveling by oneself. But the primary question remains: is it for you?

Travelling solo can be one of the most rewarding experiences. Pushing ourselves to embrace the world as an individual helps shape our unique likes and dislikes and shifts our perspective, allowing us to truly understand ourselves.

It is also one of the hardest things to accomplish with as many pitfalls as joys. Eating by oneself can be a daunting experience as is the prospect of having no one to share your thoughts. Take this quiz by Lonely Planet to see if you are built to travel alone. It helps answer the question by adding another layer: Which Type of Solo Travel is Right for you?
