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)
