Sometimes it is hard to find somebody to travel with, friends cancel trip plans because of work or family situations, others just do not feel like traveling and you can choose to cancel your adventures too or just to keep wandering as a solo traveler. It is not an easy way, because if you make any mistakes you can be angry only with yourself if you get lost it is only you who will find the right path. Although, at the end of the day when you feel that peace with yourself and satisfaction you understand that it was worth it.
If you ever dreamed about becoming a solo traveler, but you still need some inspiration, I made a list of travelers with different life stories. I hope they will motivate you as much as they motivated me to make a change in my life.
