Freedom in Traveling Solo

After I tell people that I am going on my grand European trip, the next question almost always is, "who are you going with?"

People always seem to relate traveling alone to being sad.  Truth to be told, you are actually never alone when you are traveling solo. Being alone makes you more open to talk to people and to new adventures that it’ll take you. Like that time I was in Uxmal, at the top of the pyramid and minding my own business;  I met someone who turned out to be a soldier in the Mexican army. Long story short, I ended up riding the Mexcian army bus back to the city with them! Met their lieutenant, shown around the army camp, and got to see a bomb-sniffing dog show.

Sure, traveling solo sometimes make me think of my family, it makes me wish that they were there with me! I remember feeling like this when I was in New York hoping so bad to call out my sister Girlie’s name or nudge her to show her something. I would have to admit, in moments like those, it sucked a little bit. 

Nonetheless, I guess one of the best things about traveling alone is the freedom. Nobody tells me what to do, where to go, or when to do it! I don’t have to wake up to get to a bus for a tour, I don’t need to go to the Statue of Liberty if I don’t feel like seeing it, I don’t need to wait for anyone else when I’m ready to go, and I can: wait in line for 3 hours for the best pork of my life, drink mojitos at 11 in the morning or eat tacos for 5 consecutive days, if i wanted to.

So much things to do!!!  omg 16 days to go!
