#MicroblogMondays 48: Solo Vacation
Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too.
CNN had a great article about alone time a few months ago; its importance and the reason why we’re reluctant to take it: “The not-so-fun part comes in when you’re thinking about how others are perceiving your aloneness and worrying that they simply think you have no one to hang out with.”
I like doing things alone. I mean, I like time with Josh or friends or the twins, but I also like going out to eat by myself or to the library by myself. I am equally cool doing something with other people and doing something alone.
I once took a vacation by myself to Norway. I saw friends while I was there, but I was mostly on my own, day in and day out. It was an odd experience, traveling by myself. I wonder if it would be different if I went to the beach or somewhere where the point isn’t to learn and explore but instead to plop down and relax.
Have you ever taken a vacation by yourself? Does it sound appealing if you haven’t tried it? Where would you go?
