Empowering ourselves is one of the most important aspects of thriving after the age of 50. For years we fumble around in the dark in an attempt to learn how. Yet, we discover that every time we try makes the next one a wee bit easier.
One of the most enjoyable ways to empower ourselves is solo traveling. Taking a self-vacation gives us the chance to meander. We get to flow with the energy of our location and fully enjoy the immersion of a different culture.
When going solo, we are more open to others. We are more approachable and engage in conversation with the locals easier. It’s a great way to make new friends and learn about the area not written about in the travel guide.
Setting your own travel agenda is a freeing opportunity to learn more about yourself and what makes you happy. Eat when you’re hungry and nap when tired. It’s all about you and it truly is a freeing experience that all of us must try on for size.
