One thing I’ve noticed while walking is that I enjoy walking alone, especially when I have my earpiece with me and listening to some really good songs. Sometimes, when I see someone I know up ahead, I try to slow down or take a different route, not because I don’t like the person or anything like that, I just avoid people because I know the moment they see me, they will take away that perfect alone time I was having with myself during my walk.
But the funny thing is that no matter how much I enjoy walking alone with good music and my thoughts, I don’t think I would want to travel alone in my car. I know it’s kind of contradictory to what I just said up there but thinking about it, I don’t think I would want to be alone. There’s this fun that comes with traveling in a group.
The same thing applies to walking with friends but then the only difference is that waking takes few minutes while traveling usually takes hours and I doubt I would want to be alone that long especially when moving from one state to another because the truth is that I’m going to see a lot of interesting things on the way, things that probably would have become much more interesting if I had someone there to talk to about it.
The funny thing about this post is that I’m kind of giving you guys the “I talk to people when traveling” kind of vibe when I travel but the truth is that I don’t. I’m not the type that’s bold enough to start a conversation with total strangers but when they do, I go with the flow. The thing is just that I still enjoy traveling with people (even though I don’t know them and probably wouldn’t say a word to them) because of the conversation they have among themselves in the bus. All I just do is sit and listen, almost like I paid for the bus ticket and got a free show along with it.
Anyways, I don’t have a car for now so maybe when I do get myself a car, my opinion on traveling alone or in group might change, who knows??
