Is travelling alone boring? Or is it a good chance to know thyself? These are two commons schools of thought about travelling alone and probably there’s something true in both of it.
If you think that travelling means sharing experiences with your girl or boy, your friends, your family, I agree with you. There are moments that need to be remembered and lived together. It’s not a coincidence that, after every trip, we have the need to share our memories, to tell other people our experiences.
Travelling alone is another aspect of travel. I mean it more personal and introspective. First time I travelled alone I was almost worried to do it. I’ve always needed to be amongst people, even though in the past I was a bit taciturn. It was like a test for me. I wanted to see if I could spend all that time with myself. But, after all, I can say that you have to try to do it at least once in your life. You can see travel in a different way. You can take your time and schedule your day as you like. But, first of all, you have time to think.
In conclusion, I think that all depends on what you are looking for. There’s not a standard formula valid for all the people. It depends on what kind of experience you want and you need to live. For sure, whether you go alone or not, I think every travel will give you something that become part of you, part of your character.

Anyway, if you want to travel with friends, I suggest you to go to Favignana. Read my article here.
On the contrary, if you need to stay alone in meditation, you can visit Kyoto. Read my article here.
