Traveling alone has a certain romance to it, doesn’t it? Just you against the world, independent, hair blowing in the wind while you look out over the fjords, or all cozy and solo in a coffee shop reading classic literature. You get to set your own schedule, choose what sights you see, what foods you eat, and where and when you sleep. You have no one else to accommodate - just you, on your own, living your dreams. Solo travel can be all these things.
It can also be lonely.
