Hi everyone. So I’m looking for some advice… I’ve been thinking about planning a trip to South East Asia for a few years now. It looks like it might finally work out this summer since I’ll be out of school and still have a little bit of money saved. It’s basically the last time I know that I’ll have the time to take such a long trip.
I’m really excited but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get anyone else to come with me. I’m not so concerned about the safety (within reason) because it’s a well traveled area and I trust myself to be responsible. My biggest hesitation is not having someone to share the experience with. There are definitely pros and cons to doing it either way like being able to see whatever you want whenever you want, but all of the traveling I’ve done so far has been with a companion and I love being able to reminisce years later, and be reminded of details that I’ve forgotten.
What do you think? Have any of you ever traveled alone? I think I want to go badly enough that I will do it by myself but we’ll see!
