Remember when you hitchhiked across Europe on your own for a year, or the time you got lost two blocks from your hostel and spent the afternoon making wavy hand gestures to foreign strangers. There’s a reason why Solo Travel has rap for being a transformative experience. It’s about exploration and discovery, of both the world and the self.
