I finally watched Wonder Woman this week. I am so late to get on the train, I know. However this is poignant because I realized that apart from being born a badass Amazonian, there are other ways to gain superpowers. It’s all about realizing your own strengths and discovering your unique gifts. One way to find these things in ourselves is to do something brave, like traveling alone.
Solo traveling is about conquering fears, learning who we really are without the influence of others, and realizing that we’re capable of so much more on our own than we ever thought possible. It’s a gift that everyone deserves.
It’s not just a ‘finding oneself’ journey or a carefree vacation, no. It is so much more than that. I believe it actually gives us super powers. The other solo female travelers out there know exactly what I mean.
Maybe I can’t leap over tall buildings in a single bound (I’m working on it) but I do have these 25 superpowers that I gained from traveling solo, and I bet that you do, too:
1. Ability to see more similarities with people from other cultures than differences, thanks to all of the exposure we’ve had.
2. Ability to be present with our surroundings, without anyone distracting us or impacting our opinion of a place.
