I think a lot of travelers tried traveling solo – right? If you are a traveler – have you done it? Will you also agree with me if I’ll advise in this post – that one should try to travel alone especially women? Please comment your thoughts below. 😉
I’m a late bloomer! Yeah it is, and an obedient to my parents. I’m a Filipino and you know what – I grew in a Filipino parents whom were very protective to their kids especially to the girls. Though my parents didn’t allowed many things in my teens and young adulthood but I was given an explanations. So maybe that’s why I obeyed them. 😊
I am also an introvert – so parties, fiestas and outdoors with many people were not my thing. Mind you, I have many relatives who don’t know me physically – maybe only by nickname. 😄 I think many knew, that Filipinos has a close family ties even to a very far relatives. But me, I seldom went to any occasions with them, so I didn’t know most of them, except the nearest relatives of course. Post discusses my introvert nature link below:
Those times where I used to be in my comfort zones. Yeah, even during my studies – My father most of the time used to drop off & pick me up in school up to college. Of course, I didn’t regret any about that – I’m always thankful to them anyway. They’ve done a lot of sacrifices for us. I love them! 💕 Getting out of my comfort zone link below:
So here’s the thing! When I became independent and can live by my own, still my parents advise me especially phrases like: “Do not go alone.” “Do not go to unknown places.” “Travel with friends.” “Be careful always” Etc etc… These reminders I still heard from them even up to these days.
On the year of 2016, when I totally decided to go out farther and travel by myself! To a place I haven’t gone before, with majority of the language I don’t speak or understand. My parents when I told them didn’t agreed with it. But traveling solo was set already in my mind and I’m very certain of that journey. It was just a short trip tho. I gave my rational side with respect, in the end they agreed – they had no choice anyway. 😊
Also many asked why solo – it’s lonely & boring. My answers link below:
So here’s the question, is ‘Traveling Solo really Alone? My experienced link below:
Note that I am not a long time traveler. I only travels during holidays or long weekends or on my annual vacations. So my travel experiences especially in solo were not that fully unlike those who travel long term. But still I hope, my experiences inspires many of you.
In my travels, I always credits to the Almighty above. With His blessings I’ve traveled safely and learned things from within. In my life’s journey, I’m on progress but still, I know that I know nothing.
Thank you for reading! Happy travels and GOD bless you all.
