Travelling alone should be good. It shouldnt even be in a catogry because its just someone doing there own thing and living there own life and doing what they want. If you want to travel, travel.
I believe in it 100%
Thats the path I have choosen in general life as well as travel. People seem to follow the sheep and all think its "normal" to do what everyone else does.
That is pure BS.
Do what you want, go where you want, anytime, when you want.
The jelousy and envy comes out when everyones stressing out in life, stuck in the same routene, same job, day in, day out, changing dirty nappys, paying bills, and in each others face everyday, looking at the same same clock ticking on the wall, trapped wondering when the mortgage will be paid and they will allways place there life issues on you.
They ask me when Im going to settle down. All I do is walk away with no comment. I dont even say a word. I have no time for negative vibes in my life.
Have fun, its all about a good time.

Australians are super friendly and there’s a real culture of travel here, particularly traveling solo. It’s very easy to get around.
I am traveling alone to Turkey n a few months. I have a list of things I want to see and do, but I love walking and just going off and finding a great photo opportunity on the fly.
Its always good to see people travelling alone...
Anyone needs any advice about travelling in India.
Can ask, hope will be able to solve your query.
Great post, I totally agree!
I travelled alone to Thailand and Malaysia about a decade ago, after a stint in South Korea teaching ESL.
Definitely helped me meet way more people, and many of them other single travellers. Freedom to choose your own activities is one thing, but it also gets you out of your cultural shell, you need to learn to adapt more I think.
Hi, thanks for your answer ! After Lisbon i'm really anxious to go alone other places. I was thinking about Thailand! do you recommend going there? how many days should i spend? thankyou
Yes to thailand! haha, I've been told 70% of their economy is tourism. Almost everybody will know some English (in the popular areas, if you go way off the beaten path may be a bit more of a challenge). And the path has been well beaten down to most places. I must be honest though, the first time I went there I was with a few people I'd met in Korea, and I went alone the second time around.
How many days to spend? If you are already in the region, you might get away with a week or less, but if you are flying in from N.A. or other far away city with a pricey flight and jet lag, I'd try and give it minimum two weeks, three even better. Plus, then you can see more than one area of the country without rushing, and also make some friends and relax
