    I’m in a long-term, committed relationship and I travel solo. Here’s why.

    Last winter, when I was traveling solo basically every other week, some people were honestly worried about the status of my relationship. Which kind of stunned me. Even though I totally get it. So today I just wanted to talk a little bit about why I travel solo, even though I’m in a long term relationship.

I arrived in Porto, Portugal only a few minutes before 11 PM on the first night of my spring break. There I was greeted by a cheery man and the fanciest shared shuttle service of all time: a leather-seated sedan I had all to myself. I guess my flight was late enough that no one else wanted to share. And at only €8 direct from the airport to my hostel, there was…

To be perfectly honest, I didn’t have the greatest experience when I stayed solo in hostels in Switzerland. They were pretty much just a bed for the night, and had none of the features that I’ve heard are why hostels are suddenly becoming so popular. But I was determined to give them another shot. So when I spent three solo days in Brussels before heading to the Netherlands to visit a friend,…
