Traveling Alone is Not As Bad As People Make It Seem
I spent 4 years traveling solo via motorcycle – no breaks. I hated eating alone, so when in restaurants, if I saw another solo diner, I first asked, “Do you speak English?”, and if yes, I asked “may I join you for dinner?” Only shot down one time that I can remember. I had some great conversations, some long dinners, met some great people that way, and took some of the monotony and loneliness away.
The rest of the time, hey, I was solo, on a motorcycle, no room for a co-pilot. Not so easy to change that fact. But, for excitement, freedom, spontaneity, nothing better then your own wheels in a foreign country.
1) Introspect: You will have plenty of time in your hand when u wont be exploring places..just sit back and have a little time introspecting.. what you want to do in coming few days, be happy about what you might have accomplished in past few days
2)Interact with fellow travelers: You wont feel lonely if u were!
3)Try local cuisine, visit local market , sleep if you have been sleep deprived, read.
4) Just wander around…without maps ,without GPS..its fun!!but be safe:)
5) Cheap flights, flights are cheaper when you travel alone rather than in groups

Traveling alone gets a bad reputation but being one of the few who like the freedom and the peace of mind, I love it. Traveling and photography make a such good combination that time flies.
