Self-Love Through Solo Travel

February 6, 2024

In her talk, Alessia, host and owner of One Girl Travel, delves into the transformative power of solo travel for cultivating self-love. A certified Martha Beck and travel coach, she began her journey in 2012, following a mentally abusive relationship, and embarked on her first solo trip to Florida to rediscover herself. This experience became a turning point, as she shared her plane ride with another solo traveler, sparking a realization that she was on the right path.

Alessia’s adventures continued with dozens of cruises, yacht racing, European travels, New Year celebrations in Scotland, and her first professional photo shoot in Paris. These solo endeavors not only bolstered her confidence but also led to profound self-love development. She emphasizes the importance of stepping out of one’s comfort zone to foster growth and shares a Brene Brown quote on the bravery of owning and loving one’s story.

Alessia engages her audience by asking them to rate their self-love on a scale from zero to ten, encouraging those with lower numbers to find confidence in stepping outside their comfort zone. Addressing thoughts that don’t serve well-being and replacing them with empowering beliefs underpins her message. Solo travel, she contends, forces one to be self-reliant and confront inner thoughts, which is an opportunity for growth and embracing discomfort.

Key lessons learned from her travels include self-advocacy, discovering personal likes and dislikes, embodying one’s future self, and becoming your biggest cheerleader. The pivotal takeaway is the significance of self-love in the present. Having shifted her personal narrative to one of worth, beauty, strength, and abundance, Alessia underscores the role of positive thoughts in propelling personal growth. She defines self-love as not only a state of self-appreciation but also as an enabling force for serving others. In closing, she encourages everyone to engage in solo experiences locally and venture out to practice the skills learned, ultimately enhancing self-love.

Lastly, she offers a ‘ten tips to begin solo traveling’ guide and invites her audience to connect with her through various online platforms.
