Episode 1-6: About Solo Travels
In this episode, I will talk about my experiences related to solo travel.
I never wait for anyone to travel! Just as the road waits for no one, traveling alone has a series of challenges and a series of charms, and in this episode, I discussed the contradictions.
A Part of this Podcast:
Hello, my name is Benyamin Rezaei. In this podcast, I want to talk to you about my travel experiences that I did alone.
Welcome to the sixth episode of my podcast series. First of all, let me say that I did more than ninety-five percent of my trips alone, and that five percent was now either performing a tour or had to travel with people who should have performed on that trip. Let me say one more thing. Those who travel alone and if they have tasted the pleasure of traveling alone, it is difficult for them to easily join a group. Join a travel companion, these are some of the good or bad things that traveling alone gives you. I never wait for anyone to travel. Maybe many of you have seen that group trips have their own challenges. For example, when you travel with a group, you have to make sacrifices to fit in with the group. In some places, be careful of your friend, even the one you don’t like. And otherwise, in group trips, if there is no sacrifice, no selflessness, the trip will definitely face problems. Another thing I would like to say about traveling alone. I went on long trips alone. I went to Europe for six months, which was a famous trip by car. I was backpacking for a month. I don’t know that I had a trip to Iran with my own car and I can say that traveling alone is an addiction. There is no doubt that every type of travel style has its own challenges. The same goes for solo travel. I feel that people who travel alone are more resistant to problems than to endure hardships. Because they should always take care of themselves, take care of their passport pockets. One of the concerns I have when traveling is taking care of my personal belongings, especially my passport. I never forget the time when I lost my passport in Heidelberg, Germany. I had no idea what had happened to me. I was confused and there was no one with me who could calm me down. I went to the church and cried, I don’t know, I asked Jesus Christ to return my passport. If it comes back, I will do this and that. So, this is one of the other problems.
Well, when you go on group trips, you may not face these problems. So, group trips have some characteristics and solo trips have other characteristics. Those who go on solitary trips, I feel that some of them want to reach liberation. Some of them like to achieve self-knowledge. Some people like to be in their own world and discover by themselves, and again, there are many people who don’t wait for anyone to travel. I want to tell my experiences about one of the long trips I made. When I go on long trips, there is no one to talk to. I have to talk to myself, talk to things, or talk to the doll that I put in front of the car window. Because if we don’t talk, I don’t know if I should call it depression or something else. But you need to talk to someone with something or with a social group in your travels. One of the charms of traveling alone is not traveling in a group, you face a challenge every day.
