Traveling alone is one of the most liberating experiences of adult life. As travel enthusiasts, every member of the team at Pat Tours loves to get some solo travel during their time off, but it may not seem too appealing for some people.

However, even though traveling alone can be intimidating, a vacation alone can reveal so much about yourself and help you grow as a person. We definitely recommend it for people who are on the journey to find themselves!

Let’s break down some reasons why you should book a solo tour to Poland ASAP!

Make New Connections

When you travel with friends or family, your attention and focus are usually on them. It’s natural to want to bond with your loved ones during the vacation you planned with them, but it’s also nice to be able to form relationships with people along the way.

Traveling alone means that you’re free to strike up random conversations or bond with a fellow solo traveler on the group escorted tour in Poland that you’re on.

Travel Without Anything Holding You Back

Another problem with family or squad vacations is that you often have to deal with the other person’s wants and opinions. As anyone who’s traveled with their spouse can attest, it’s rare to agree on something wholeheartedly when you’re with someone else.

On the other hand, traveling alone allows you to follow your heart’s desire and do anything you want without running it by someone else first.

Build your Travel Confidence

Traveling alone can be scary — and that’s precisely why you should do it. The more you travel alone, the more you’ll feel confident in yourself and your abilities. Who knows, someday you might have a job that requires frequent travel, and you’ll find yourself lacking the experience.

It’s not just about traveling alone, too. Traveling openly is the key to forming a thick skin and adapting to the new environments you’re in.

Discover Yourself

This may sound like a cliché, but you do genuinely discover yourself on vacation alone. As humans, we define ourselves by how we relate to others way too much. That can often suppress your own identity and desires.

When you travel alone, you’re building a stronger relationship with yourself and discovering your mind and heart’s inner wants. That’s a recipe for incredible personal growth, which is why solo travel is a coming-of-age experience you should have.

Empowerment for the Win

Most importantly, traveling alone empowers you! No need to be dependent on anyone else, whether it’s your spouse, partner, children, parents, or friends. You get to learn to stand on your own two feet, and that’s a lesson nobody else can teach you.

However, traveling alone doesn’t mean moving unsafely. With our Polish tour packages, you can book yourself a solo seat onto your private group tours to Poland, Lithuania, and other countries in the region. You can stay safe in a group, while still being able to do all of the above! Call us at 413-747-7702 to start planning your vacation today.
