A big misconception of a solo traveler is that you are traveling alone. This can’t be farther from the truth. Usually you bump into people while traveling, travel together for a bit and then continue your own paths when the time comes.
Being a solo traveler gives you the luxury to pick and choose what you want to do and when. More importantly, when you want to be with others and when you don’t.
As a solo traveler, when you do find people you like traveling with, it’s a BIG deal. Intentionally traveling with another person or group isn’t something you’re use too especially the longer you “solo travel”.
For example, Ronit the creator of @cultivate.travel has become my “travel wife” over the years. I’ll travel anywhere with her. Thanks to her, I went back to mixing some group travel into my solo travel plans and thanks to me, Ronit ventured on her first solo trip in the USA. Yay us!
Here is 4 Fun Facts that sum up our friendship and travel story and some of our favorite highlights from our reunions all over the world.

- Our favorite travel activities when we’re together is eating our way through a city and doing tons of coffee ☕️breaks.
