“Everything worth doing is both terrifying and wonderful”
Pros & Cons of Solo travel
Pro: You can do whatever you want without worrying about what anyone thinks.
Con: You have to decide for yourself what to do.
Pro: Eating whatever you want (Ex; I ate 3 croissants for breakfast one morning in Paris, which I never would have done if anyone had been around)
Con: No one to share dishes with. You get to try far fewer things when you’re traveling solo.
Pro: Reading at meals. This one might be specific to me, but I think sitting with a book at a restaurant is so luxurious.
Con: If you don’t have a book, it can be awkward to stare at a wall/other patrons for an hour.
Pro: People are more caring when you’re alone. Random citizens of whatever country you’re in tend to be more likely to offer help if you’re alone.
Con: Rapists, thugs and thieves (basically all the bad people mom warned you about) tend to notice solo travelers more as well.
Pro: Never having to wait for anyone.
Con: no one to watch your stuff while you go to the bathroom! You always have to carry it with you.
