I've traveled solo quit a few times and obviously I love solo travel. It's liberating to do what you want when you want, become resourceful, not let little things bother you, make friends with people from other countries and learn to trust your gut. You pretty much feel like a badass, which is an intoxicating feeling.

But I'm not the only one who feels this way. Here's what other girls have to say about loving solo travel. By the way, these are not bloggers. These girls went on a trip for the experience.

"The feelings I have traveling by myself are very powerful--in a way, meditative. I have the distinct sense of being present in each moment; my senses are heightened, I'm paying attention to my surroundings, and absorbing the novel details of each new experience. I'm acutely aware of how I'm feeling and what I want when I'm not worried about someone else. I'm free to the routine and expectations that unconsciously tie me down at home. I feel powerful and free." - Dana, 27

"Without companions I focused more on the culture’s incredible history, societal values and delicious food. By actually learning about their culture I learned about myself. And when shit happens, because in life it does, I find a strength inside me to figure it out. Now I find myself booking solo trips and getaways without hesitation. It’s part of who I am." - Frances, 30
