That precious time spent in coffee shops in places you couldn’t communicate, just people-watching and grinning at the people who came to interact.
Those rare times you bagged a dorm all to yourself and chose to spend the evening writing and exploring what makes you tick.
Unless you’ve been stranded on a Fijian island due to an impending cyclone or perhaps you’re a storm-chaser. If they respond with pizza and dare to use the word Dominos and not because they ‘experienced pizza heaven in Napoli’, then your heart may break a little. These questions are asked every single day but the answers open up whole new worlds of possibility and understanding.
It’s not just weather, but small talk is a way of life for so many. You’ll start to realise how often people chat about nothing at all. Each response kicks open doorways to dreams and inspiration. Some people have never dared to explore the depths of their soul or even given themselves the time to learn what makes them tick.
A person who loves solo travel is seen as a free spirit.
A true nomad who’s broken free from the shackles of society and dared to march to the beat of their own drum.
So good luck solo travellers, it takes a special person to understand why you NEED your alone time.Any stereotypes or tales of whole cultures or lands being dangerous will dissolve as you learn the truth.But your love life, well I’m sorry to break it to you, but solo travel will throw a huge anti-cupid grenade right onto that. You will forever be undateable to those average guys and girls.The solo traveller doesn’t need another’s reassurance, they make big bold decisions every single day.They are the ones with wild fire in their eyes, who trek miles to soak up the perfect sunset.
