Nowadays, travelling is widespread among people of various ages and social groups. Some people like to travel with a companion or a group of tourists other people prefer to travel alone. I think it’s better to travel alone and I would like to travel by myself and make my own travel plans.

In my view, travelling alone will be more free than travelling with a companion. On my own, I can choose which place I really have interest in. I could travel to beautiful and spectacular places. I can even arrange my schedule according to my own preference and can decide what time to go and be back. By doing this, I can take my time and visit various spots where I want to see.

Travelling alone is really a challenge that people have to look for the information about the country, such as the culture, the language, the climate, etc. People will be more independent if they travel alone. When you travel alone, you can meet new people, have new experiences and you can learn more about yourself too. Another thing is, when you travel alone you will have a chance to relax inside your own hotel room.

In the contrary, travelling with a companion, the places that you can visit are very limited as what the tourist guide has prepared. Also, with groups they prepared special meals for them instead of eating typical food but, on my own I can eat whatever I want that I could only afford.

To sum up, I think sometimes it is imporatnt to do things on your own. You can find new friends, collect new memories and adopt different ways in doing things. Another reason that I like to travel independently is because I’m kind of a spontaneous person, so I like to take advantage of opportunities that present themselves on the trip.
