“Oh, you’re traveling alone? That’s sad.”
No, actually it’s fantastic. I get up as early as I want, eat all the desserts with no judgment, take hundreds of photos of things many people would find otherwise boring, laugh with new people, and most importantly — I get to spend time with me.
“Don’t you ever want to settle down?”
I am married — is that not enough? My husband is quite amazing in that he loves that I love to travel solo. He isn’t big into travel and I find it awesome that I get to have this second life that I can come home and share with him. I am settled down — this is my job and I love it.
