Sudden turn of events urged me travel again. I just feel that I need to breathe and be alone. Away from the mainstream, away from him.

I used to travel alone but has not been doing so for quite sometime already. Now that I’m shattered, I’m considering the thought.

Anyway, I don’t want to make my usual readers to be bored by all-about-him-entries so I’ll try to make sense here.

It has always been in our culture as Filipinos that traveling is always declared as a group activity. Most or shall I say, many of us would often go out of town together with friends or family members.

But, how many has actually traveled alone? I doubt if anyone will raise hands here.

Unknown to many, traveling solo has its perks too. It was through journeying alone that I was able to develop my skills in communicating with the strangers. I get to know a lot of people. I was able to appreciate local history more. I have met a lot of people.

Traveling alone is a very liberating experience for me. Imagine, I don’t have to wait for friends at the airport for an extra minute before queuing at the check in counter. I dont have to worry extra budget in case my friends would ask to dine in an upscale restaurant, or take a taxi instead of the usual jeepney ride. I can go to any place that I want. What if my friends love to go to the park, while I want to visit a local museum? Hard, isn’t it? Traveling with friends always limit your choices of itinerary. Not to mention limiting the foods that your going to binge in. I love seafoods, but my friend is allergic to crustaceans. While my other friend is a vegetarian?

The pace of your traveling activity is not a problem when you are alone. You can set your pace if you want to tour quick, or walk slowly, just like in the park.

I myself love traveling alone. It gives me the freedom to explore a city without the need to tow friends who are not interested in what I’m doing.

It was our plan [forgive me] to travel together this December but I’m not seeing that happening now. It hurts me big time when the thought comes to mind. I’m still in denial. I haven’t cried yet and I don’t wish to. I know I will soon and I hate it.

Going back, so if I were to choose between traveling with a group or traveling alone, I’d still prefer the latter. The adventures are limitless. Who knows what happens next?

Yeah, who knows?
