1. Because maybe you’re scared.
And that fear needs to be squashed to a pulp.
Remember that one time your mom threw you into the pool? When dad let go of your first two-wheeled bike? When you had your first job interview? Your first kiss? Before those moments, entire worlds — neighborhood blocks, corporate ladders, relationships — were out of bounds for you. And then? You went ahead and conquered. What makes traveling solo any different? If anything, it’s easier. All you have to do is get to a place and exist. No balance, no buzzwords, no fancy tongue movement required.
