15 Things You Learn About Yourself When Traveling Alone

I have always found solo travel to be reoriented, rather than disorienting. When I return to my job and my routine after having had the opportunity to explore myself while exploring somewhere else, I can’t help but feel like my decisions are a little more informed. That’s my goal and the paths I take to get to them are a little clearer. When traveling solo, you might just learn more about yourself than the place you travel to -- lessons you’ll find transfer to all kinds of arenas in your life. Hopefully, you return from your adventures feeling a little more empowered.
