Don’t get me wrong - I am all about dragging my friends out to see the mountains. I love sharing my favourite views with quality humans, and creating memories together that we’ll never forget. But, you don’t need to travel in a pod if your schedules or interests don’t align. Some of my favourite experiences outdoors come from travelling alone. Here are five reasons why going solo is a total blast:
Growing up I would consider myself a bit of a ‘scared-y cat’. Not in everyday life, no, that’s when I would force strangers to watch me sing and dance while I stood on the mantle of the fireplace belting my heart out into my Fisher-Price microphone/tape recorder... My poor parents.
One of my favourite outdoor activities is Fly Fishing. It has taken me all over the backwoods and back-roads of Alberta, searching out the nooks and crannies of small creeks in hopes of finding uncharted waters.
There are many things I know about myself, such as; I love all works of art, I’m adventurous, I like strong beer, and even stronger coffee.
Thursday night, what's there to do? Sure, we could order pizza or see a movie. Watch something on Netflix and kid ourselves that we could try to stay up past 11. But what's the fun in that? We were in desperate need of something that would feel like a Friday, but... on a Thursday.
