If you want to know more about yourself, then you MUST travel. And that should be a solo travel. I see that most of the people term traveling as the one they do everyday from office to home and going to another state on office work. I couldn’t stop laughing whenever I hear this. Traveling is no way related to your regular office work. It is escaping from the routine work, from family issues or personal issues and exploring yourself and nature. Simply to say, it is knowing your connection with nature.
If you feel something new, meet different cultures, forget yourself, feel peace and happiness, then it means you really have a great travel. These days, solo traveling has become so popular.
