It is such a joy to travel and experience places you have never been to before. At the end of the day, it’s not about your filled shopping list or the number of photographs you took, it’s about becoming a better version of you.
When you travel solo, especially when you’re female, the challenge is more extensive. It may wear you physically but at the end of the day, you’re still standing. The experience it brings you have proved that you really don’t need anyone to get by. Just don’t forget to bring a positive mindset and you’re all set to travel on your own.
Most people tend to over pack, bringing things they see as “need” but your numbers of travel will teach you the real essentials you need to pack when traveling. You pack less to easily navigate when on the road.
Learn New Skills
May it be through communication, discovering a travel hack, and becoming a travel budget master. Learn to cook or bike or scuba dive, the possibilities are endless. There are so many practical things to learn on the road.
Your travels allow you to see things that are uniquely different from what you may define as common. When you keep an open mind, your perspective of the world grows and develops.
Live in the Moment
Try not to pull out your camera as soon as you see something that takes your breath away. Just take your time to take it all in and live in the moment. These experiences will inspire you, makes you happier and better.
There are so much to be gained when traveling. A great traveler in pre-modern times has proven this and so much more. Hailed from Tangier, Morocco, Ibn Battuta has traveled the world for almost 30 years in many different countries. His travels and stories have contributed immensely in the areas of geography and travel literature.
On November 9-12, 2017, the Moroccan Association of Ibn Battuta is putting up a fun and colorful travel festival in honor of Ibn Battuta’s legacy. It will take place right in his home town in Tangier, Morocco. Hundreds of local and international guests are expected to participate and everyone is invited to join in the celebration.
