The Travel Monster
Hello friends! You can call me Ron or Evan, either way would do. Actually I am really introvert by nature, in that sense I am more able to express myself through writing. I thought of doing a blog in the past, however, I am too lazy to do it since I am also busy doing stuffs in school, and now I am already working. However, I am really happy that it materialized now.
I was just browsing through different blogs across the world and I was so inspired seeing all their travelling experiences. I told myself, well it would be lovely if I would be able to share my travel experiences to the world. I’m 21 as of the moment, and my passion about travelling started when I was 17. However, even when I was still younger, like 9 or 10 years old, I really enjoyed reading books about Geography. Whether you believe it or not, I even memorized all the capitals of different countries, I’m that obsessed! Up to now, I have several apps on my Iphone regarding Geography, I have here maps, World Factbook, Travelpedia, etcetera.
Of course, aside from travelling, I do have lots of interest, from singing, to television shows, movies, something on sports, cars, latest technology and gadgets, current news, and many others; so I might be posting entries regarding those things too. Also, At the age of 20, I graduated college with a degree of Psychology, so yes I have a huge interest with regards to Psychology, but no, I don’t read minds. Ha ha. Additionally, I have been singing too since time immemorial, Music comes hand in hand with Travelling – those are my 2 most dominant interests. However, I am way too shy to post videos of me singing, maybe in the future if I would be able to lose all these shyness, but not now! Anyway, thank you for visiting this site of mine, I hope you all have fun reading my articles and posts. This blog is just part of my dreams in life, or should I say this would be the medium where I can voice out and show the world each dreams of mine that I’m trying to turn into reality. Well, dreaming is just free! We should just keep on dreaming of something BIG because when it happens, ITS GONNA BLOW OUR MINDS! Happy Reading folks!
While it’s wonderful to share a special trip and new experiences with friends, a partner, or family, there’s a compelling case for travel alone from time to time. Solo travel can work for anyone, whether you’re single, in a relationship, extroverted, or introverted, and here are 9 good reasons why you should try it. This entry is a re-post from lifehack.org since I found this one pretty awesome and on the spot! Enjoy reading.
1. Simple logistics
It can be challenging to coordinate a trip and time away from work with another busy person in your life, and it’s even more difficult when you try to make plans with a group. Usually, these challenges can be overcome by simply planning far in advance, but if you find yourself with some down time and you can’t find a travel partner on short notice, it may be the perfect time to pack your bags and go anyway.
2. Work on your bucket list
Is there something you’ve been dying to try that no one is willing to try with you? Maybe you’d like to go skydiving over the Grand Canyon, see ancient Mayan ruins, or simply eat real Maine lobster. When your partner and friends don’t share every one of your interests, that’s OK, but it’s not OK to sacrifice your dreams, especially when all you have to do is get there.
3. You’re great company
If you rarely spend significant time alone, you may be surprised at how enjoyable it can be. When was the last time you truly listened to only your thoughts and entertained only your dreams? Depending on the destination, a solo trip can be a powerful, introspective, life-changing experience. Imagine sitting on a peaceful beach at sunset or taking an invigorating morning hike without having to make conversation with anyone.
4. Meet new people
If you’re a born extrovert, traveling alone can be a wonderful way to meet locals and make new friends. Often, people who are alone appear more approachable to others. Before you know it, you could be chatting with some interesting folks at a sidewalk cafe or even joining a group of like-minded people for yoga on the beach. The key is to keep an open mind while keeping safety in mind, especially in a foreign land. Chances are, when we travel alone, we also meet another traveller who is alone who would seem to be really interesting.
5. Do everything you want and nothing you don’t want
Have you ever been hesitant to do that half-day at the spa you were longing for because you felt bad leaving your travel partner with nothing to do? When you travel alone, you are not obliged to entertain anyone but yourself. If you want to “waste” the day sitting at an outdoor bar drinking mojitos instead of sightseeing, you won’t have to answer to anyone.
Now, let me ask you, WHY WOULD YOU PREFER TO TRAVEL ALONE?
