Lifestyle of a Solo Traveler

I just got back after my 3 month long trip; I am now back to the regular programming of my life (and actually writing this blog post from my office table) and I reminisce the difference of lifestyle!  So here is my list:

  • Waking up late with no pressure
  • Choosing white rice over brown
  • White bread over wheat
  • Meeting new people that you will prally never see again
  • Making new meaningful friendships
  • laying on my bed before having a shower
  • Miss brushing my teeth before I sleep
  • Get into bed without washing my feet
  • Dont require my chiropractor all the time
  • Walk, walk, walk
  • Waking up with no purpose
  • Caring about no one else but yourself
  • Skipping breakfast because I can eat lunch at 4 or whenever I want to
  • Start drinking alcohol at 11am
  • Learning how to adjust to different kind of beds and pillows
  • Learn how to do laundry
  • Waking up and having to fix the bed *couchsurfing
  • Cleaning up after myself
  • Constant awareness of my passport, cellphone and wallet
  • Mastering Google maps
  • Carrying my bag up and down the friggin stairs by myself
  • I guess I complain alot less too
  • changing my mind at the last moment and it doesn't matter
  • Not having to do anything else but what you want
  • Sharing bathrooms
  • Speaking bad Spanish mixed with excellent miming skills
  • Still cant live with no internet
I look forward to this lifestyle again soon.  So many places, so little time.

  1. I can totally relate to your list! In fact, my list would look the same!

    I've had the fortune of finding friends who I love to travel with, but I still relish getting the chance to travel on my own. Getting the freedom to do whatever you like is a huge plus to traveling solo!
