“I decided I want to travel by myself and I want to go to Canada!” I told a friend of mine as we filled our drinks before a movie.
“Me too!” she exclaimed.
And that’s how one of my closest friends and I discovered we were both planning trips to Canada and traveling by ourselves.
Solo travel is something I’ve wanted to do for awhile. I often travel by myself to a destination, but I always meet someone there. I wanted to experience what it would be like to arrive and still be alone. It’s something I had been toying around with for awhile and one day last fall I decided that it was time. I don’t have a serious boyfriend, fiance or husband, so I don’t have a built in travel partner. Now’s the time to venture out and take this step to travel on my own.
