In LA, winter ends pretty much as soon as it starts since its sunny and almost 80 in February right now. However, I know in most other parts of the world, seasons are a bit more…real.

Let me start by saying that there are so many reasons to travel solo and only a few keeping people from the world. People travel solo not because they can't find someone to go with them, but they make the conscious choice to do so. Even if you prefer to travel with someone else, life is too short to wait around for others.

The great outdoors! With technology booming right now and AC versions of everything, we spend less time outside and more time lounging around watching Netflix from the comfort of our beds. Trust me when I say I'm in no way judging you for this. I am a lover of shutting myself inside for a week with a 12 pack box of popcorn and Gilmore Girls streaming 24/7.
