For the last 12 or so years I have slowly been making my way around the 50 states. I have visited almost all of the 48 continental states, but in my travels, because I generally travel alone, I have always failed to fully enjoy what each location I visited had to offer.
I do most of my traveling through my job and when I travel I generally go from the hotel to the work site and back to the hotel.
A few trips ago, before arriving at my destination, I told myself that I would visit at least one top site. Although it made me extremely uncomfortable to be out in a strange place by myself, I can honestly say that I really enjoyed myself. I ended up going to a different store or restaurant every night and meet a few new people.
Now I look forward to traveling solo, whether through work or personally. It is something that definitely takes getting use to, and of course you have to be extra safe, but once get the hang of it I promise it is so much fun.
