I like travel alone.
I love to have a vacation with my love or close friends, say going to the beach, staying in a mountain cabin, or any fixed place, but if talking about travel on the road, I would like to be with myself for most of the time.
Sometimes, I just want to buy a movie ticket to watch it with locals without understanding any single word; Sometimes, I just want to rent a bike in the early morning, ride it through the town and feel its awakening; Sometimes, I just want to get up at noon,
eat the brunch, lie in a hammock and read a book; Sometimes I just want to hang around in a museum for a whole day; Sometimes I just suddenly change my whole journey plan because I fall in love with this city and plan to stay here for another week.
When you travel alone, you can do some many crazy things spontaneously, and enjoy the freedom all the time. You don’t have to please anyone at the expense of compromising your own will.
No doubt you will meet so many difficulties on the road: lost, rip-off, rob, physical injury, hopelessness, sexual harassment, etc., and you have no one to share with you, You can only rely on yourself. But after all kinds of ordeal, you will find your spirit
is much stronger than anyone else. That’s your reward.
Recommend everybody to be a Lonely Traveler in this Lonely Planet.
