Seeking solitude can bring peace and insight that endures after a trip. When we find a beautiful place to experience alone, we can enter into a rejuvenation simply from the company of ourselves. Along with that, finding solitude in travel can lead us into the most unexpected and memorable adventures when we wander on our own. If we gain the ability to acknowledge the greatness of a destination even without a group, it can develop us to become more bold, reflective and grateful travelers as we learn to see the world in new ways.
This week, the Passion Passport community will share of their past experiences apart from others and how it has impacted them as travelers. We want to encourage you to share the stories of the memories you created on your own that are incredible and worthwhile. Join us this Thursday, September 29th at 2pm ET to chat with Passion Passport and the travel community on the power of Solitude in Travel!
