My Travel Story
Like many people, I moved away from home to attend University, which was my first taste of independence. To be honest, I didn’t love it. It was not what I had imagined it to be at all! I didn’t connect with a lot of people and found myself lonely away from what was familiar.
I soon realised that in fact, being an introvert means you just have to go about things a little bit differently to everyone else! Partying every night isn’t right for me – I don’t have enough time to recharge on my own. I wasn’t secure enough in myself to say no to invitations, and I got burnt out. It wasn’t pretty! But I earned how to manage myself and my social interactions.
A few years later, I was saying an emotional goodbye to my parents as I went to Austria for a 5 month ski season. That trip went very differently- the key is to know yourself and plan ahead for both social time and recharging time!
Since then, I haven’t looked back.
I always wanted to visit different places, and finally, I did it on my own.
Travelling as an introvert can be easily done with the right amount of planning and being selective of the situations you find yourself in.
How I started traveling
Now it’s easy to grab a laptop and find an internet connection most places in the world. I can work from anywhere.
