I have tried different types of travel. I’ve gone alone to South Korea 🇰🇷 , I’ve gone with just a friend on a road trip in the USA 🇺🇸, I have joined a travel agency’s tour through China 🇨🇳, and I have traveled in a group.
I have to say, the latter is usually the most problematic.
Unless they’re very close and known friends you might not get along. At least I don’t.
Things like aligning on the itinerary, the flight times, the hotel you want to book, the food you want to eat… The list goes on and on.
Yes, you can always go your separate ways once you’ve reached the destination and meet every few hours for a meal or something. Or the complete opposite, walk together but split when it comes to food 🌮
Still, you’ll have to get along for the preparation of the trip. For me it is painful. I usually don’t like to wait for people to decide what to do with their lives 🤦🏻♂️ Once I know I’m in, that I’m going on that trip, I’ll book whatever I have to book. Yet, there are always people who are unsure, who haven’t done the proper homework to ask work, partner or whatever. So you need to wait for them.
Argh! 🤬 In some cases, if I know we’ll be going on different planes I’ll go ahead and book it. Problem is when you need to go together, for whatever reasons.

I was skeptical 🧐 about traveling alone. I did it only on 1 occasion before embarking to South Korea last year for more than 2 weeks. I have to say it is quite refreshing 😌 Doing whatever you want the whole trip, at your own pace, without having to align with anyone. Yes, ok, sometimes it would be nice to have someone you know with you. Even so, overall, it’s a worthwhile experience I would recommend. Well, I liked it so much that I’ll be doing it again in a few weeks 😅
What’s your best type of travel? Any recommendation?
