I recently took a break from Nigeria and went on vacation to London. It was the first time I had travelled out of Nigeria since 2019-before COVID-19. Here are a few things I enjoy as a solo traveller:
- The joy of doing nothing.
- Being able to start your day at your own convenience. Do I want to get up by 7am or 12 Noon? It’s my choice!
- Walking at your own pace. This might sound weird but if you’re a slow or fast walker and your travel companion is the opposite, it could make things a bit stressful when moving around.
- Making random plans that only you understand. One day, I wanted to go shopping on Oxford street. Another day, I wanted to go for a walk at Hyde Park.
