On 1 December 2018, Romania will celebrate its centennial anniversary. To mark this moment on my travel blog, I am publishing a two-part article containing 100 reasons why you should visit Romania, my home country.

Why traveling alone can be a life-changing experience

We’ve all been on those family holidays where you rely on each other to make the daily decisions of where to go, what to do, and what time to do it. You know that someone is always there to talk to, to laugh with, and to share the dinner bill. And while that’s a nice thing to fall back on, it can sometimes take away from your surroundings, as you’re more focused on making sure that everyone else is happy, rather than just doing what you want to do. And so you choose to go traveling alone.

Being out there alone gives you the chance to wander, and sit and relax, really taking the time out to watch the world go by. Lying out by the pool in some of the luxury villas in Canngu, and thinking about just how perfect this very moment is. Mixing with the locals as a single traveler is bound to introduce more conversation and interest too. You see, a lot of people are fearful of travelling alone because they assume that they’ll get lonely and nervous and anxious because they don’t have anyone by their side. But you’d be surprised as to just how social it will be, if not more so now that you’re riding solo.

Here are some more benefits.

Rome holiday itinerary, day 5: More things to do in Rome

As we were getting closer to the end of our Roman holiday, we had more time to spare for unplanned things.  And we ended up wondering what is there to do in Rome after all the places we had already been to.

So on Monday morning  we were back on the subway, heading to Ottaviano once again. When we visited the Vatican, we walked by Museo Leonardo Da Vinci Experience, and I promised Mathieu we’d go back to visit it before we go back home.
