Travel | A trip of one’s own: How to enjoy traveling solo | Seattle Times Newspaper

Maybe it’s because I’m an only child, but I like traveling alone.

There’s a special sweetness to solitude. It’s less complicated. There’s nobody to blame if things go wrong, nobody to accommodate, no schedule to stick to but your own.

When I travel by myself, the three things I always take are a black wool shirt, a journal and a scrap of advice from G.K. Chesterton, who was famous for missing trains: “An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered.”

As an only chlid as well, I also like traveling alone. Then again, maybe I just haven’t found the right company yet.
