Traveling alone sounds scary at first. No one to share the experience, eating at restaurants alone, and just general insecurities about being a lone traveler. But the past month for me was anything but lonesome. I met as many people as I would normally in a year. In Mykonos in particular, I started a random conversation with @gypsy_inthe_jungle while we were both waiting for a seat at the recommended Kiki'a tavern. After a few random convos we ended up hanging out for the next few days, riding little scooters and ATVs and climbing sharp rocks to find picturesque views.
Traveling alone, while scary at first, allows you to step out of your comfort zone and meet new people across the globe. I now have friends in Denmark, Britain, Kuwait, Bali, New Zealand and much more. I can't wait to hit up @theshadyshack and @betelnutcafe when I visit Bali! I know the owner now haha!
