If you need a convincing: Why Solo Traveling?
Setting small goals along the way, and I’m off to the next goal. I completed all states and territories of Australia in 2019. Next goal is all continents of the world, North America in 2020, Africa in 2021 and Antartica in 2022.
But guess what!
Covid-19 happened and North America in 2020 is cancelled.
Towards the end of 2018, I made a commitment to complete a mini-mission to visit all states and territories of Australia, and it is done!

If you are thinking about it, just do it!!!
Travelling solo to South America is dangerous? yeah, nah, just do it!
Pros: Go wherever you want, whenever you want, do whatever you want, and change your mind 20 times a day. Expand your mind, challenge yourself, increase your confidence level, conquer your fears, read strangers better, trust yourself more, treasure silences, and understand your purpose.
Being alone is a journey, being a couple is a journey – it is not the final destination. Being a solo traveller is my current journey.
(Disclaimer: although my Europe trip was with another amazing girl, Glen, we had the solo traveller’s mind – wherever, whenever, whatever – when we didn’t have the same plan, we went our separate ways and met up for dinner. Halfway through, we even went to different countries then met again.)
Cons: some meals are for sharing, unable to go to the toilet because no one can look after your valuables (I’m trying to stretch this list but I can’t)
