Gone are the days when
people thought of spending all their lives in the same city and a trip was a
word for elite only. Now, with the technological developments, exceptional
connectivity of transportation, the globalization, and the ever increasing
awareness towards other states and countries, the world has started to become a
global village. Thus, myriads of tourism are ever increasing. Having travelled
since childhood, I can certainly say that the tourism industry at global level is
changing rapidly and this is fetching a lot more travellers and tourists each
year.

Travelling means to visit and explore places
that are based far off from a person’s initial location. It is often said and
is usually regarded as a fact that travelling provides a break from monotonous
life and helps people release stress that they accumulate from their
professional as well as personal life. Perhaps, for the same reason, countries
across the world are promoting their tourism sector. Tourism is very seriously taken in various countries now. Countries like
Singapore and Spain have travel & tourism as an imperative part of their
financial set-up whereas the industry contributes to over 35% of the
national GDP for Thailand. The scope in the industry has increased
significantly over the past couple a decades. Hence, people have started taking
up jobs in the realm of tourism, as, writers and bloggers, tour advisors, etc.
I myself have come across people who earn their livelihood through traveling
and they happily love doing so. These reasons have resulted in accumulation in
the travelling population.

As the industry is booming at a speed never
seen before, new trends have started to emerge and the most recent and significant
is “travelling solo”. A dramatic rise, for the same, is already evident and it
is projected to rise at a similar pace, if not more. Travelling solo,
certainly, helps people bring out the best in themselves. Several influential
people and world leaders are stated to have discovered their inner desire to achieve
an authoritarian position while being on a vacation. For instance, Steve Jobs
has regarded his trip to India behind the inception and success of “APPLE”.  Not only does traveling solo helps you
understand a place and your inner conscience better rather it also instigate a
spark of ambition. In addition to it, Due to the fact that a person is
traveling alone he/she understands culture of a place visited, better than
those who are in a group. However, traveling in a group has perks of its own
which cannot be negated as well, as, traveling with a companion, helps in
strengthening the relationship and also provides people with a chance to know
each other better with their likes and dislikes.

Thus, travelling doesn’t matter, solo or in a
group, is an adventure, one of a kind. While, solo traveling is going to give
you an extra dose of excitement with more adrenaline rush, traveling with a
group helps you find a chance to know the people you are traveling with and
develops opportunities to strengthen the bond and relation.
