According to Proust "The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes".
Traveling is good for the brain. And the last frontier of travel is solitary vacation. A choice that seems no longer belong only to a few free spirits and globetrotters looking for themselves. What until recently seemed a bizarre idea, is now a trend. And a study confirms its benefits.
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes
said Marcel Proust.
"Traveling alone helps people increase the feeling of having more control over their lives and actions. Traveling alone also stimulates reflection and helps in self-discovery ", says Professor Constanza Bianchi of Queensland University of Technology, as reported by the Huffington Post. The study confirmed the benefits, even psychological, of this type of holiday. "It's the best way to work on yourself" says Bianchi.
Follow your own pace without having to adapt to those of others, rediscover a new feeling of freedom, enjoy the relaxation without the anxiety of having to plan a group shift, open up to new experiences, meet new people and choose what to do and what to do no are the advantages that solitary travelers have appreciated the most.
