There is nothing more exciting than planning a long, solo road trip because you know you’re going to be able to think your thoughts, listen to your music, and play your audio books for hours and hours on end. It’s not surprising that this would be music to my ears since I’m an introvert. Is there anything better?
Travelling to a new place by myself, even if the new place is only ten miles away, is my idea of a great time. Some of my best memories are on the road, enjoying the sights and the alone time.
When stress gets high, I tend to either planning a solo adventure or a solo road trip. Experiencing the world through my own eyes without anybody else opinion is not just a desire, it’s an essential need of mine. It’s part of my self-care.
It’s just too bad that I have discovered a love for road trips (solo or otherwise) when the price of gas is exaggeratedly high…
