Summer has officially started, which means vacation season has too. While the saying is, "The more the merrier," traveling solo can be just as fun and even more meaningful. Not to mention you can do whatever you want, whenever you want. It's also the perfect opportunity to meet new people! If you're in an unfamiliar place by yourself, you are more likely to ask for the help of others. Travel journalist Anisha Shah writes, "Traveling alone is no longer taboo. In fact, it's now trendy to go on trips alone, as more and more people are discovering the freedom of exploring a new place on their own terms. At the same time, community groups, meet-ups, and a vast wealth of online and digital resources have made it easier than ever to hit the road solo".
