  1. I haven’t been solo travelling yet. Haven’t mustered up the courage to do so yet hehe. Maybe some time at the end of the year. Any suggestions for first timers? I heard Laguna is good.

  2. I am in full agreement on these reasons. I haven’t traveled solo yet. But if I have enough money and free time for myself, I will try to go abroad solo. It might be an interesting experience for me. I wanna share with you another advantage of travelling solo that is you feel free. A journal without job, friends, colleagues, family. So it make you don’t be annoyed. It is really wonderful opportunity for you to have a good time after working hard.
