In Defense of Solo Vacationers: Solitude is a Catalyst for Innovation
Gearing up for my own solo vacation to the beach soon so I'm giving some gratitude towards the occasion!
As I grab a book off of my bookshelf titled ‘Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking', I am reminded that I bought this book a year ago and need to actually read it. So now it's in every bag I carry and will definitely be on the reading list on my trip. The inside cover gives this statement:
"Solitude is a catalyst for innovation."
- Susan Cain
This statement is exactly why I love traveling solo and also why I highly value my alone time. It is about enjoying the experience as my own, reflection, and letting that solitude cultivate inspiration. Truly a special occasion to breathe and enjoy yourself while maybe listening to some hip hop along the way (which per usual, is what I will be doing).
If you are on the fence, there are so many great travel bloggers that are great to follow and gain insight from including Adventurous Kate, The Blonde Abroad, and Girl About The Globe. All of these women travel the world and get to share everything they learn along the way with all of us! The power of the internet. Does anyone else have one they love following?
Below are style essentials + playlist inspo to bring on your trip to make every little bit the brightest! Aren't these so cute?!
