Flying Solo

So you can ignore my last post about going on a Euro tour with the bestie. That trip has been postponed and the traveler in me just couldn’t let me be idle in my free time. So here I am, writing to you all in my hotel in Paris. This will be the start to my first ever solo trip abroad.

When purchasing the tickets & hotels, I was extremely nervous! But I overcame that feeling by joining a few groups on facebook (thats actually been my main source of inspiration). If you are contemplating a solo trip, or just a trip in general, I HIGHLY recommend checking out facebook groups dedicated to travel. I will list the few that I joined and feel free to join too :).

So how does it feel to travel solo? I’m generally a pretty private person. I always have been, Growing up I would come home from work or school and just go straight to my room. Nothing has really changed, except now I live in a one bedroom apartment alone, so its just one giant room dedicated to my solitude. Which makes me even question myself on why I was so nervous to travel alone in the first place. I honestly just think it was not being able to have that tangible sense of familiarity traveling with you. Its nice having a piece of home with you when going to a foreign land. Its something that I think we all secretly crave, but which do you crave more? Having a piece of home or discovering a land new to you and finding a home?

I think we all know which one I indulged in. Now its time for you to indulge, and if that wasnt enough, search for these groups on FaceBook and be inspired!
