One of the best parts of solo travel is that you have to really get to know yourself. Like, when I travel with others, I'm very much a "whatever you wanna do" person, but when I'm on my own I actually have to think, "ok, what is it that I actually want to do?" and I feel like that's led to so much self-realization on the road.
I definitely have discovered that though I can appreciate a city, I will take a small village over a city any day. And that I will always choose local food, unless I pass a particularly amazing-smelling Indian or Italian restaurant in a place that is not India or Italy 😂 And most importantly, I've discovered that I can keep calm under pressure when things go wrong and actually have a lot of problem-solving skills when I don't have anyone else to rely on!
What have you figured out about yourself on your solo travels?
