In London I had a few days on my own while mi amiga was working. It was my first time doing the whole solo tourist thing and I loved parts of it, and hated others. I for sure learned some things about myself along the way. Here are a few of my thoughts on the pros and cons of a tourist party of one:
Pro: Stopping as many times as you want for coffee or dessert without getting judged
Con: Eating way too much of said dessert because there’s no one to share with
Pro: Spending as much or as little time at a museum exhibit as you want
Con: Not having anyone to discuss how amazing or not a museum exhibit was
Pro: Freedom to make and change your plans as often as you like
Con: Asking strangers for directions because you are spatially challenged and alone
Pro: Seeing everything you want to see
Con: Mastering the selfie to prove you saw it (i.e. above photo)
Pro: Enjoying a pint at a local pub all on your own and feeling very liberated.
Con: Enjoying a pint at a local pub all on your own and feeling very alcoholic.
