WHAT IS THE MOST REWARDING WAY TO TRAVEL? WELL, THAT IS IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER BUT I CAN TELL YOU THAT ONE SOLO TRIP IN YOUR LIFETIME IS A NECESSITY!
I recently read an article from Afar Magazine entitled, 10 reasons why you should travel solo, and I totoally agree with each reason. In my most recent past life…aka when I living in Virginia…I met not just a few but several people who didn’t even believe traveling was important. And who knows, you may believe that too, but I feel it is my duty to share with the world that the most rewarding way to travel is in the eye of the beholder.
To me the most rewarding way to travel used to be solo and some of my most beloved memories have come from the trips where I was out in the world on my own. BUT NOW now that I am married with a son I want to travel with my family…most of the time that is.
I am not going to preach to you about why solo traveling is the most rewarding because I am sure you can already imagine the life lessons that would be learned upon the way.
WHAT I DO WANT TO DO IS MAKE YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ANY TRAVEL IS THE MOST REWARDING WAY TO TRAVEL AND I WILL DO THAT BY SHARING THE TOP 10 THINGS TRAVELING WILL TEACH YOU.
