I’m leaving soon for my first solo trip abroad. I’ve traveled abroad numerous times and traveled alone plenty, as well. But this will be my first time combining the two and I feel compelled to share some thoughts…
I love traveling alone because it teaches you to trust others, and more importantly, yourself and your intuition.
For me, doing it in a foreign country is exciting and just outside of my comfort zone. That’s how we grow and change. Not by doing outright risky things, but by knowing our limits and striving to stretch them, ever so gently.
Everyone has different boundaries, comfort zones, and accompanying beliefs. Here are mine (as they pertain to this trip):
I believe in living outside of your comfort zone.
I believe in the kindness of strangers.
I believe that experience is our greatest teacher.
I believe that when we act with boldness, mighty forces come to our aid.
And most of all, I believe in the God of angel’s armies (who has never once left my side:)
To be continued…
