Does travel truly make us richer? 

 

Passport and camera on a amp of world

 

Solos’ Jenna explores the currency of experience

In 2024, I celebrate two decades since embarking on my transformative travel adventure—a globetrotting escapade through Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and Hawaii. This journey, a culmination of dreams and aspirations, was fuelled by a year of diligent saving while others around me invested in cars, climbed the property ladder, or embraced lavish lifestyles. Rooted in a hunger for adventure and a desire to break free from the ordinary, this experience marked a pivotal chapter in my life.

As I reflect on that time, I recall a version of myself unencumbered by fear and open to embracing every new experience. In contrast to the present age of overwhelming media exposure and constant bombardment with alarming global realities, my younger self’s naivety served as a catalyst for profound personal growth.

 

Escaping the everyday, embracing the extraordinary

Amidst the tapestry of ‘normal life,’ I found freedom. The journey allowed me to encounter inspiring individuals, expand my perspectives, and discover a profound sense of acceptance absent in my daily routine. Gratitude fills me as I reminisce about living without constraints, seizing every opportunity, and immersing myself in diverse landscapes and cultures.

The evolution of solo travel

In those earlier years, devoid of guided tours and solo travel communities, I navigated the world armed only with a map, dined alone for weeks, and relied on guidebooks for itineraries. Yet, this immersive experience paid dividends beyond my imagination, teaching me that sometimes losing oneself is the key to self-discovery.

“We all start alone and getting on that first plane trip not knowing what is at the other end is scary. But let me put you at rest, once you are the other side and meet the other single people, you’ll wonder why you were ever nervous.” – Paul, Solos Customer
