Your chances of finding a person who doesn’t have traveling on their bucket-list are extremely rare to non-existent. Traveling changes you and teaches you things that you would never imagine possible!
Some people enjoy traveling in large groups, some in a much smaller pack, and others with just one partner. But, be sure that you’ll most probably have a totally different and unique experience if you traveled on your own.
FLO and renowned photographer, Coucla Refaat, joined forces to show the power of nature and self discovery through #Coucla_Flos_ToPeru. From hiking the Andes mountains to sleeping under magical star domes, the pictures from her adventure with her travel companion, FLO, are just absolutely stunning.
The collaboration between the two big brands is inspiring, as it has the power to encourage people to take the initiative and wander on their own.
Below are six reasons why you should travel on your own, inspired by the collaboration between the unique by nature FLO and the famed photographer!
Tell real stories
When traveling alone, you are guaranteed to see unimaginable things and experience unusual situations that would make for the most interesting stories.
The amount of beauty and diversity you’ll see while traveling and exploring the world on your own are bound to make you appreciate the life we sometimes take for granted.
The people you meet
When you travel alone, you’re way more likely to meet new different people. Be it locals or other travelers like yourself, you’re going to meet people from different backgrounds, cultures and stories — and every single one of them is going to teach you something and add to your life.
You learn a lot about yourself when you travel on your own. In each trip you go on, you may discover a new interest, you may even be surprised from how you’ll act in a certain situation, and you may find a new reason to love life.
Be the real you
In a new city where you know no one, you can be whoever you want to be. You can be your real self without any sense of constraints from your society. In that very process, you may become a completely different human, whose no longer concerned with what people think.
Explore the world
Saint Augustine once said: “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page.” I honestly couldn’t agree more. The world is beautiful, colorful, diverse, and worth exploring.
