Why traveling alone?
Traveling alone is the best way to explore the World for two reasons.
- First, it allows you to really connect to the places you are visiting and to meet locals or other travelers more easily.
- Secondly, it is important to travel alone to really feel your freedom and to get to know yourself better. Nothing will make you happier than reaching the top of the Stromboli volcano and enjoy the view alone with your own emotions and thoughts. Some people will say “Yeah , I prefer to share all the good times i live in my trip with someone”, well, it is so easy to meet other travelers or locals so you can share your experiences with them along your trip.
