When I took my first solo trip to Japan, my traveling style instantly changed. But that same trip was also what got me hooked on traveling alone. Furthermore, there was an exact moment that changed my perspective not only within the realm of travel, but extending to all my interactions and thus completely changing my entire social life.
When you’re traveling alone, you find yourself in extremely difficult situations without anyone else there to help you or to talk out a potential solution with. You have yourself alone as a resource.
