At TIAA, we never want you to feel like you’re on your own when it comes to managing your finances. But, when it comes to traveling, it turns out that being on your own could make your experience even more incredible.
In a world where we’re constantly surrounded by friends and family—either physically or virtually—the idea of being on your own for an extended period of time can be a little scary. Going solo to dinner and a movie is one thing. But, hanging out all alone on the islands of Thailand or the mountains of Nepal for weeks at a time is a different story!
That said, if you’re lucky enough to have more time off than your friends or family, your trip to paradise might have to be a ticket for one. And (gasp) that’s ok!
Yes, being alone on your journey comes with obstacles that’ll test your limits, push you outside of your comfort zone and change the way you live your life. But none of that is a bad thing.
Still interested? Great! Because if you can overcome your fears, traveling alone is guaranteed to bring you some amazing experiences and lifelong benefits.
