I love traveling alone. It gives me the chance to wander the city at my own pace. I don’t necessarily have an itinerary but I know the places I definitely want to see. In my day-to-day life, I am surrounded by people and while I love what I do, as an introvert I can get easily overstimulated and anxious.
And because I’m me, I also dislike traveling alone. As a woman, I fret about sticking out and being a target. Plus, there is such a thing as being alone too long, to the point where I welcome human interaction, even if it comes in the form of people I dislike. This doesn’t mean that I’ll stop traveling alone, but it does make me wonder if I’ll be able to find a happy medium one day.
