Some people may think that the best way to travel is in a group led by a tour guide, but it is just where I differ from those people. I think the best way to travel is to travel alone. If I travel alone, I can enjoy the pleasure of meeting new people, trying new things and totally relaxing. However, if I am to travel with a group led by a tour guide, this pleasure seems impossible.
Travel alone means that I can meet new people more freely. I can meet not only the other travelers, but also the local residents whenever I travel to a new place. If the person I want to meet is not available at the present time, I can even reschedule my time. But if I travel in a group led by a tour guide, I have to stick to the schedule. I have to take other people’s time into consideration. That means I will lose a lot of chances to meet new people.
Travel alone also means I can try new things personally. I can go anywhere I want and do something different from my lifestyle. However, if I travel in a group, the place where I go and the things that I will deal with are all arranged and fixed in advance. I have no choice but to follow. That will be miserable for me as a traveler.
When I finally mange to take a travel, I want to relax myself totally. Work is too hard to do and I am really eager to have an enjoyable break. However, I am in a group and I have to stick to the travel schedule, to consider the other group members’ feelings, to go wherever the tour guide leads to. That seems just like I am on my duty at work again. I cannot really get relaxation.
I always prefer to travel alone. I would like to meet a lot of different people, experiencing new things on my way in traveling. I think that only scheduling my travel time more casually can make me relax completely. Would not that be the only purpose of traveling? I would like to encourage you to travel alone too. In any case, do not travel in a group led by a tour guide.
