Want to have fun? Go solo!

Debunking the stereotypes, solo travelers are no longer the ill-fated, or the ones who are deprived of a coveted company, established a recent study. In addition, it also talked of how a solo traveler loves his or her own company.

According to Queensland University of Technology (QUT), travelling alone is more of a choice rather than a forced option undertaken by the solo travelers.

The number of people travelling alone has taken a leap over the period of time, though some of them have family and friends, muses a leading researcher Constanza Bianchi.

“Research shows solo travel is the fastest-growing tourism segment and figures support this with solo traveller numbers increasing by almost 20 percent between 2007 and 2011,” Binachi added.

In an attempt at getting hold over the feeling of emancipation and understanding oneself, people nowadays prefer jaunting all alone.

“You discover a lot about yourself and you learn to be at peace with your inner monologue due to time spent alone and the challenges you must overcome alone,” said one of the participants of the aforesaid study.
