"I was scared crapless to travel alone, even as an adult, because I thought I'd do something wrong or there'd be some disaster. Turns out, traveling alone is the bees' knees. When I road-tripped, I could go as long as I wanted without stopping for pit stops, etc. and alternated between music and silence. It meant I got home WAY faster.
And when I traveled across the country it was great because I didn't have to wait on anyone to get ready to go, and I just checked my bags and wandered around the airport with all the freedom and time in the world. When I was done, I went and sat at the gate and read a book. I slept the entire flight, and making my connection was so easy because I was just looking out for myself instead of me and whoever else who wants to argue about how to get to the right terminal. Or who has to go to the bathroom eight times. Or who wants to run to the McDonald's.
I'd never turn down a vacation traveling with a friend, but taking a vacation/traveling alone is absolutely something I'm down to do whenever I can, too."
