yes, i am deeply in love. with whom? nah, more like with what. :)
been reading travel blogs of pinoy/pinay solo backpackers and it inspired me even more to do solo travels. just looking at their photos of the most beautiful places both in the phil and abroad left me in awe. and they're doing it alone! :)
solo travelers usually get a weird reaction from both friends and relatives about going alone on a trip. the first time someone told me, "why go there alone?! para lang sabihin nakapunta ka?!", i got depressed and frustrated. i never did solo traveling before and i thought maybe she could be right. i was so tempted to cancel my first solo travel, but guess what, i pursued my trip and enjoyed big time!
solo traveling is not bad at all. you get to plan your own itinerary without the need of consulting other people's schedule or plans, which by the way is the major reason why group travels tend to be cancelled a lot. plus, you have a higher chance of meeting new people. (when you're with someone, you have a tendency to go exclusive and not really mingle with other tourists or the locals).
solo traveling has its disadvantages, too. but i guess, i don't want to dwell on those. i'm just too excited and inspired by the backpackers and their experiences that i don't want to mind the cons. :D
it's just that, tonight, i fell so deeply in love with traveling and the idea of doing it alone. :)
