Have you ever taken a trip by yourself? Do you prefer to travel with people or alone?
I have taken trips by myself, but they’ve only ever been interstate, so I guess it doesn’t really count. Most of the time I’ve always stayed with relatives, or when I was in my last couple of years of high school, I’d travel to Sydney and stay at my uncle’s hotel – I guess that’s really only been the closest I’ve ever gotten to a trip by myself.
I’ve always travelled with others – primarily, Hulk. There’s something enjoyable about travelling with other people, even if it’s just your partner. Unfortunately, we’ve never actually taken a holiday together, but I do wish we could find a small chunk of time to get away together and actually have a proper HOLIDAY, rather than just travelling for work. I’m sick of travelling overseas for work. I want so badly to travel overseas for recreation. I want us to have a holiday somewhere… ANYWHERE!!
It can even be great travelling with a few people… but I think that it’s also very testing on your limits and your friendship. Being confined to small spaces with a few people 24/7 can (and has) pushed me to breaking point, and I’ve needed to just breakaway and have some solo-time, just to be by myself, and not have to deal with who wants to do what, and waiting for other people to get back to the hotel because there’s only one or two keys between 4 people. Nope. Sorry. Not doing that again.
I do often think about the possibility of travelling by myself somewhere. I don’t actually know where or when, but I know that I’d like to do so at some point in my life. All I know is that I’d most definitely prefer it to involve a tropical island somewhere… bring on the clear blue tropical water and sparkling white sand!!
