Travelling on a single holiday does have its perks. You'll get to meet like-minded travellers & make new friends. Sometimes, you need a break from your family, & travelling alone can give you time to relax & sort things out. I travel a lot with my friends too, as far as to Europe, mainly for shopping & spa. I would also travel to nearby countries like Tokyo, Hong Kong or Bangkok for my shopping sprees alone, if my friends' schedules can't meet.
Of course, there were also many occasions when I had to travel alone on business. To play it smart, I would make it a point to extend my trips after business for some sight-seeing. Travelling opens up a whole new world for me. Many would have thought that after working as a Flight Attendant for several years, I should've had enough. But travelling is addictive, one can never get enough.
With the internet these days, making travel arrangements are so easy. From booking flights to hotels, & even spa or food tours, everything is just at the click of a mouse. Gosh, I'm already thinking of my next travel destination as I'm writing.
