In my travels, I always make time for myself to wander alone and immerse myself in the sights and people, even if it's just for a few hours. There's something very poignant about it, spending time with your own self and with your own thoughts. You get to examine yourself in a different environment and even surprised at how interaction with people rekindles our faith in humanity. In malaysia, I spent a rainy afternoon on a cafe, just sipping coffee and listening songs to my ipod, not the least self conscious about it. In singapore, I tried to take a picture of myself using a timer and a kind female traveler offered to take pictures of me. In return, I snapped pictures of her too and got to talk about recommended shopping spots. It was a pleasant encounter with another person of a different culture. In macau, I traveled alone for the first time and it was the scariest moment of my life. But I came home knowing that strangers can also be kind and they could be found in a lot of places. I know that I'm not the first to do this and that other people have a lot more experience travelling the world but experiencing it yourself, it's one amazing experience.
