I have always considered myself to be quite an introvert at heart. Time spent alone is a treasured thing in my opinion, though I realize not everyone shares my enjoyment of solitude. While my friends tend to enjoy loud, flashy ocean cruises as their vacation of choice, I prefer something more sedate.

For this reason, I made the choice to travel alone in the wild last summer. The experience was truly incredible, and I recommend a similar journey to everyone I meet. There is nothing like some solo time to truly gain perspective and peace of mind.
