The joy of solitude

After 15 years of travelling mostly solo, I have really grown to appreciate and love the moments when I have only myself for company. Whether trying new foods, learning a new language or enjoying the sights and sounds (and sometimes smells) of a new place like Baja Mexico in 2002 or Ghana in 2013, there are feelings of both thrill and fear. Over time, my mind has learned to relax, reflect and take in all I am learning. For me this is one of the pure joys of travel and part of why traveling has become a passion with a purpose.
