So yes, I enjoy travelling alone and actually prefer it to travelling with someone or in a group. Why? Yeah, I get that a lot. So, here are some of the reasons off the top of my head:
No compromises – I get to see and do what I want, when I want. I don’t get dragged into going to an exhibit I have no interest in seeing and wasting my time there, especially if I’d rather be doing something else.
More flexibility – If I give myself a few hours to go somewhere but end up enjoying it so much that I spend the whole day or even multiple days there, who cares? It’s my time. I’m not holding up anyone and I’m enjoying every second of it.
Less time – I can get in and out of areas pretty easily and quickly. Think about it. In a traffic jam, would you rather be in a car waiting or on a bike easily weaving around it? Also, in restaurants, you can just go to the bar and eat or grab a small table for 2 in the corner instead of waiting for a table to open up that accommodates the entire group.
I’m sure there are other advantages but that’s what comes to mind immediately. Of course, there are pros and cons to everything. But for me, my time is more valuable and the quicker I can get around and do things is less time wasted.
