Traveling solo

Microsoft Heyooo
Dec 30, 2018 34 Comments

Is it really worth it?

I’ll be getting married in 8 months. I have tried out a short solo trip before once and it was okay.

I hear people doing it all the time and enjoying it. Can you explain what is the part you enjoy and what makes it fun for you?

Wondering if I should take that solo trip to Europe before marriage or with my fiancée.

Thought?

    It's personal preference, generally the interesting part it gives a chance to meet lot of people.

      Different ways, in group tours, hanging out at the bar, hotels, hostels. Even found people who are hitch hiking, I was renting a car. Somehow you will end up meeting people randomly.

      Probably more like 1.5x, 2x implies you are paying double for hotel too

      No need to act, I’m a douche by all the top FANG standards. I can get two rooms (or two bedroom suite) just to sleep better.

    If you did’t enjoy it when you did it before, take your fiancee with you. It’s personal preference, I like going on solo trips sometime. Some people never have fun by themselves.

    If you're not white, avoid places where you can get killed.

    You should be fine otherwise.

    Sucks if you're not outgoing. Walk around and take pictures and go to sleep, repeat n times.

      That’s O(n), you can make it O(1) by not going solo.

    I took a solo trip after a break up. I just wanted to stay alone, but didn't feel like wasting time staying home.
    It was actually a lot of communication and meeting a bunch of new people, so I didn't end up being alone as I planned to. I think traveling solo is easy in terms of scheduling stuff, as you don't really have to adjust to anyone else's needs. So in my case I would just leave hotel in morning, visit a lot of places and do activities during the day, and just come back at night dead tired.

    You don't really have to decide either or. Travel alone, and then with your SO.

      Where do you meet these new people?

      Just some random places: while standing in line to museum, in restaurants, group trips, etc. I actually like talking to strangers, cus it helps to meet people from outside of my usual bubble.

    Traveled solo, outgoing, ended up meeting lots of people...Nothing beats traveling with your S.O tho...Just another opinion

    If you’re outgoing, traveling solo is the best! Stay at places that have other travelers, eat out, take a tour, and you’re bound to meet other solo travelers or even just groups who are curious about why you’re alone and want to join your travels. Whenever I’ve travelled alone, Im meeting people from the time I step off the plane to the time I return

    Some ppl like to travel some ppl dont. I love it. Traveled over a dozen countries solo. But depending on what's going on in any given year I'd rather stay close to home or travel with friends. Try it one more time. If it's not for you try an all inclusive resort, cruise, or something. Not everyone should backpack thru Asia in hostels. Lol
