Should you consider a solo travel trip?

We all have different goals in mind.

Those goals may be easier to achieve with a group, or they may be better done alone.
For some people solo travel is a great way to push themselves mentally and emotionally.

For other people, traveling by themselves is a recipe for disaster.
Ultimately your trip should be about having positive experiences.
There may be challenges sure, but those challenges should build your experience, not tear it down.

If you’re on the fence about going solo or sticking with a group, I have a little quiz here to help you out.

These 27 questions will help you gain insight on whether you are up for the challenge of solo travel.

And it is challenging.
Even for the toughest of people solo travel can arduous.
But it can also be rewarding beyond measure.
