I was 23 and still without a boyfriend. A few times I have started to wonder what was wrong with me. Am I that ugly to not have someone approach me? Am I really just the type of girl that guys want to be friends with and nothing more? Valentine’s day usually was the day I’d think I was not a girlfriend material but in any other day I was usually happy to be single and spending my own money on me.

In family gatherings, my relatives would ask me if I have a special someone or am I not sad about not having a boyfriend which pisses me off sometimes coz it wasn’t really something to be sad about, right? Well, at one point it pissed me off that I was still single, so sorry relatives if I huff at you and roll my eyes when you ask me…

1. You will meet amazing people.

While traveling with friends or a significant other can be a lot of fun, traveling solo for a certain amount of time can prove to be one of the most rewarding things you’ll ever do because of the great people you’ll meet.

When we travel with friends or a partner, we tend to stick to that little group of familiar faces and even though you’ll meet new people, the dynamics and interactions won’t be as deep and fulfilling. While you’re on your own on the road, you’re much more eager to meet travel buddies, team up with other travelers and generally reach out more in order to socialize.

2. The overwhelming sense of absolute freedom.

When you travel on your own and you start meeting people and making awesome friends, you’ll probably team up with travel buddies and…

When I was twenty-five, I quit my job to travel the world because I met five travelers in Thailand who changed my views on how I wanted to live my life. I saw them living their dreams, exploring the world, and thought “Why not me?” After traveling to Costa Rica the year before, my waking thoughts were filled with the simple question “How can I travel more?” These travelers had figured out the answer that had alluded me and after meeting them, I realized I would do what they do. I quit my job, finished school, and left for one year. Over seven years later, I’ve never stopped or looked back on that decision.

And when people tell me they want to travel but will “sometime in the future,” this why I tell them they should travel now:
