Being a solo traveler taught me how to be independent. It made me receptive to new experiences, like traveling with strangers, making quick decisions in potentially dangerous situations, and learning how to be happy without the external validation of others. Every adventure is a challenge that gives me a sense of accomplishment. A sense of fulfillment. Nothing compares to new discoveries and exchanging thoughts, knowledge, and ideas with the people I meet along the way.
“Don’t make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you.”
