In my last post, I shared the benefits of solo travel, but I mentioned that it’s not all ice cream and rainbows. There is definitely a dark side to vacationing alone, but it’s nothing you can’t overcome!
I regret that I didn’t consider solo travel until I was in my early 30s.
It all started on a work trip to Chicago. Because I’d received a last-minute invite to the meetings, I was staying a different hotel than my coworkers who had made reservations months in advance. Suddenly, I realized that traveling on your own isn’t that much different from living on your own. If I don’t need a roommate at home, why do I need a travel companion?
