    I have already tried travelling with friends and it’s so much fun. I haven’t tried solo travelling yet because I want to be with people and experience the same adventure with them. But I also want to try solo travelling someday.

    It doesn’t matter if I have people with me or not. Of course, it would also depend on where I’m going and why I’m going there.

    I have not tried traveling alone except work-related trips. In such cases, I always meet up with friends in my destination. I would prefer traveling with friends but I want to try traveling alone at least once in my lifetime.

    Solo!!! It always gives you more time to concentrate on what you like the most and skip what’s not important for you.

    I can travel with a group or alone. There are perks either way. You have full control of time when you are alone but you have a greater sense of security when you are in a group.

    I usually travel with a group or with my wife. However, I have had the chance to travel alone too. I went to Singapore to catch a concert by myself, so I had a chance to join a historical tour that afternoon, something I know my kids will not be interested in when I am with them. Travelling alone gives you a lot of freedom to manage your time as you like it.

    The freedom of solo travel is unmatchable indeed!

    The kind of things you learn about yourself in a solo trip is a unique experience and it is definitely worth trying once.

    Very true, it is dependent on many factors. But, there are some unique benefits of traveling solo and the earlier in life you realize that, the better it is, in my humble opinion.

    Yes you must, and then share your experience with us 🙂

    That’s well put. Indeed, there are benefits on both sides. The good part about being alone is that you get the blame and acclaim of all things you do!

    Yes well put. I am glad you managed to travel alone after having kids. Counts as an achievement!

    I travel with my partner – but traveled alone before I met him. Luckily we both share a passion for travel.

    Alone! Alone! Alone! Okay, I guess there are varying answers to this question. I prefer to travel alone, as in plan it all myself. I don’t love group tours. I also very much enjoy traveling by myself, but also love the occasional group trips, as long as I get my alone time…does that make sense?! For example, I went on a trip with 5 of my best friends and had a great time, but the times I spent by myself exploring complimented the times we spent together.

    I prefer to travel with my hubby as we get to spend quality time together. But, we’re planning to have a family outing once the kids grew a bit more. 🙂

    Agreed on that! Have you tried solo travel?

    When you have someone who offers you the freedom to explore by your will, group travel becomes as much fun!

    I totally get you, there are merits on both sides and it really depends on the situation. But at the same time, the ability to explore yourself and be the owner of both blame and acclaim of all your doings while traveling is where solo travel is unmatchable. Would you agree?

    What I like best about solo trips is that you don’t have to wait for your companion. You have all the time for yourself and you can do whatever you want.

    I prefer traveling with my family and friends. I like that we all get to experience and share new sights and create memories together.
