Even introverts can suffer from loneliness when travelling, particularly if they go solo. Here’s what you can do to handle it effectively.
Socializing on the road may sound hard for introverts, but it doesn’t have to be. In fact, it’s often easier than at home. Here’s why.
As I spent the majority of 2018 on the road, I couldn’t help but learn a few things about travelling as an introvert. Here are my insights.

In fact, debunking that myth and proving that introvert travel is indeed possible was one of the main reasons for me to start this blog. The myriads of introverted
