Traveling around the world with friends or family can be a rewarding experience, allowing you to live experiences that are cherished for the rest of your life. But have you ever stopped and thought about traveling solo? One might believe it to be a dull experience, not having anyone to share the laughter and pleasures. However, the truth is that solo travel is truly a spiritual experience that helps you gain more freedom, independence, and of course, a better understanding of yourself.
Carla Virgos, a travel enthusiast, has been a diver for a long time and an ocean lover for even longer. To spread awareness and help with educational projects in local communities, starting in Maldives and extending to other locations across the world, she is working hard to protect marine life. One day she decided to go on a solo journey to the Maldives, and it changed her life completely.
As a keen solo traveler, passionate about exploring the beautiful ocean and marine life, Carla developed the skill of making solid connections with local communities and a variety of people on her journey. Aside from sharing her solo traveling experiences on Instagram @Carlavirgos, she also encourages everyone to try this once in their lives. She adds that traveling alone can have a positive impact on your personality. The sense of accomplishment from successfully finishing your first solo journey is difficult to compare. You can advance personally, discover more about yourself, and become happy. Your confidence will unquestionably increase as you learn how you act and respond in unforeseen circumstances.
She continues by saying that a solo journey will feel adventurous no matter what you do. You venture outside your comfort zone, perhaps visit a new location, meet new people who will help you create lifelong memories, and do much more. Additionally, it allows you to reflect on your past and consider what you want in the future.
Solo traveling helped her unite with her purpose in life and pursue her passion as a diver and traveler. She initiated her own company ‘Kandu’ – which would not be possible without her incredible local team, a group of Maldivian boys who are now like her family: Nazykko, Ageel, Bot, Shaafiu, KK, Shah & Kokky.
Traveling alone might seem impossible or a considerable task, but with Kandu, everyone can enjoy a solo trip and safely participate in marine wildlife encounters. Her amazing team also provides the best underwater footage and content for memories.
Carla believes that a solo trip is a must once in a lifetime. It is a transformative experience that fosters a sense of freedom and broadens one’s view of the world. Traveling alone teaches you to budget your money, buy what you need, and lead a simple life. You gain the ability to handle issues on your own as well.
With the immensely capable Kandu team, you can enjoy solo travel and go on underwater adventures and learn about ocean life. Follow Carla company’s Kandu on Instagram and join them on their next expedition.
