Go It Alone!

Today’s travel tip is really a lifestyle tip as well. Go everywhere, to everything, ALONE.  Waiting for others to get on board with your plans will cost you time, money, and experiences. As a single woman, the thought of doing things alone can be scary and awkward. But only if you let it. Doing things alone has its benefits such as: You can make moves when you’re ready, without having to consider someone else. Reservations are easier to make for smaller parties. Being alone draws other people to you. You seem more approachable, giving you opportunities to meet new friends. The best benefit to traveling and doing things alone is that you learn more about yourself than you ever thought you would. You learn how you respond to different situations and you’re forced to push yourself beyond your comfort zone. Comment below and tell me why you do or don’t enjoy doing things alone. Thanks for reading!
