Travel solo to Europe packages
My first backpacking trip in Europe was a solo adventure. I was a little worried at first, but I soon found that traveling alone was one of the best things I’d ever done. While it did have some downsides, I still wholeheartedly endorse solo traveling to anyone (males and females). This guide will cover the positives and the negatives of traveling Europe alone and give you some practical advice on how to make the most of your travels.
Positive Aspects of Solo Travel
Complete Control: When you travel alone you can do whatever you want. You can eat whenever, see whatever, and go wherever you want. You can’t fully appreciate this freedom until you travel with other people.
Food Freedom: From my experience, choosing where to eat can cause more stress than just about anything else– especially when you’re traveling with a group of people. When you travel alone you can choose exactly where to eat. Also, many restaurants in Europe won’t split up the bill so paying become a huge hassle in large groups.
Choose Your Itinerary: You can do the things you want to do. You don’t need to answer to anyone else. In a group everyone has their own ideas of what to see and this can cause a lot of conflict.
No Arguments: You’re bound to get into arguments or even fights with your travel partners. Travel can be stressful and you usually take out your frustration on your travel partners. I find that I get a lot less stressed when I am alone.
Total Focus: There is no one to “distract” you. You’re totally focused on whatever it is you’re experiencing.
Reinvent Yourself: You can be whoever you want to be when you travel alone. This is your chance to let loose.
Meet New People: I meet a lot more people when I travel alone. Groups tend, usually unknowingly, to put up a “wall” between themselves and other travelers, so this makes groups not as approachable. You also have an instant connection with other solo travelers — yes, there are plenty of other solo travelers.
Self-Growth: You have no one but yourself to rely on when you’re a solo traveler. You quickly learn to be self reliant and I think that makes you a stronger person.
Disadvantages of Solo Backpacking
Eating Alone: Many people feel really uncomfortable eating alone — especially in restaurants. It isn’t bad for breakfast and lunch, but dinners do get a little lonely. It really isn’t that bad and it isn’t too hard to find other people to eat with.
