65. Travel alone
Updated March 7, 2010
Some people don’t like to do anything alone. If there aren’t any friends or family alone, they won’t go out to eat or go to a movie or even shopping.
I’ve never been that kind of person. I enjoy my own company – I have no problem going out to a restaurant, even a really nice restaurant, with just a good book. I’ve taken in lots of movies by myself – nobody eats all the popcorn or junior mints when I’m not looking.
Given my willingness to do things alone, I’m surprised that I haven’t ever taken a solo trip. I’ve flown by myself on a plane, but there were always plans to meet up with friends or family at the other end, so there’s never been an actual solo trip. When I went to Ireland, it happened that my friend Shannon was available and willing to go with me, but if she wasn’t able to go for some reason, I would have gone by myself with no problems.
I will keep this in mind and plan a nice trip for myself.
