ELLE (Canada) - - Travel -

I’ve never done an ex­tended solo trip (like Maryam Sid­diqi’s 193-day voy­age; see page 150), but I reg­u­larly go on shorter in­di­vid­ual ad­ven­tures. I loved road-tripping along the Big Sur coast, stop­ping when­ever and wher­ever I wanted, and me­an­der­ing around Bangkok at my own pace. Be­ing alone with my thoughts in new places (with new ex­pe­ri­ences) takes me out­side of my “ev­ery­day” self; it gives me the time and space to de­velop new trains of thought—and the free­dom to see my­self in a new light.
