Solo travel is something I really want to do, but somehow always talk myself out of it. It's odd, because I am normally a very independent person, I love to travel, and I love doing things alone at my own pace. What can I say, I'm an INFP.
But I had always resisted travelling alone. The idea always interested me, but I'd convince myself that people would be worried. And yeah--people would be worried. But I'm an adult, and I know the dangers of it.
While I'm hyping this up to be a total grand adventure I went on, in reality I only took a hour long bus ride and spent the day (all daylight!) in the city of Seattle, a city I'm decently familiar with. But hey, baby steps!
Those of you that don't know, I love the city of Seattle. It's so interesting and artsy, not to mention beautiful.
You know, when I was waiting for the bus, I met a Venezuelan woman who asked if I was from England. While I have heard that my accent isn't strong or particularly southern, I've never gotten English before!
By the way, the lines were finally short enough to ride on the dang Great Wheel. It was really nice and calming too, I definitely recommend everyone trying it at least once, but try whenever the lines are shorter! I'm not sure it's worth waiting in an hour+ long line. Twenty minutes? Yeah, sure.
I hope you enjoyed my little travel diary. I really hope to do some more trips and maybe even more solo trips soon. It was really enjoyable. Eating mac n cheese, chilling at a cafe, window shopping---all while I didn't have to worry about rushing, or waiting up on others, or losing others.
I definitely recommend solo travel. Have you gone on any notable solo trips?
