#TokyoUnexpected: Traveling Alone Makes You Discover Your True Self
Have you ever got into the situation were everything that you’ve planned unexpectedly didn’t happened?

Just like when you planned this amazing adventure with your boyfriend, like visiting Tokyo this summer and yet a day before your exciting trip, you and your boyfriend broke-up.

And that's effin sucks, right?

It is crushing to your core, not to mentioned that time you’ve spend months on planning for this trip and eventually just to get dumped for another woman.

Some might choose to cancel the trip and rushed to your ex and try to win him back.

But there are some lady who won’t.

Though the reality of going to Tokyo for the first time alone and heart-broken is really Earth shaking.


However, it is Japan – the country of the Rising Sun.

But let’s face it – going solo travel is not that easy as they always told us.

If you are a millennial and a travel bug just like me, trust me the reality and struggle of traveling solo I hard AF.

If you are a style blogger, NO one will take your OOTD post for multiple times before you got your best 2-shots. No one will carry you huge bags fun of IG-props for your trip. It is a struggle to carry two RIMOWA luggage full of clothes because you need multiple outfit change for every scene.

And yes, NO one will say – “…you looked beautiful, babe..” even you are struggling to have that awesome jump with those cherry blossoms as your backdrop.

You will be struggling to stretch your arms to have that selfie with the oldest shrine.

And there will be many times that you might get lost, and you have no one to rely on but only yourself.

….. or maybe rely on Google Map.

And there are times you will think if you did the right decision of going alone, away with your heartbreaks back at home. You are wondering if this trip will help you, to somehow to forget even just for few days.

You would think if this is the right path for you.

And sometimes you will have doubts on yourself and say “…. It is my fault. I shouldn’t take this.”

You’ve travelled miles away, and walked thousand steps, and after thinking and seeing these beautiful sights that surrounds you, with many happy faces staring at you, you will realized that…

When you travel alone and carrying those heavy burdens on your chest, let it be carried away by the sweep of the breezy air. Let the nature showered you with good hopes and not over-think of yesterday. It is already in the past, and now your solo journey is guiding you on your future path.


Our expectations are sometimes too high, which makes us too stressed to reach the heights. Why not enjoy every single moment and let your feet carried you?

Be adventurous and open yourselves on every possibilities!

Try new food and restaurants, enjoy those heart-warming sake and party with fellow travelers along the way. Travel makes us more patience and understanding, and you’ll never know the surprises it will give you.

Make new friends along the way, and always have that genuine smile because it is the international language that everyone understands. Great everyone “Konichiwa!”

Don’t be afraid because what you really not understand is that – YOU are never alone.

Your journey is your destiny. It will help you to grow much stronger, much tougher than who you are back home. Stop thinking of your heartbreaks and failures, but let those be your guide to your new path that will help you to find your new self.

After every typhoon, there is always a brighter tomorrow.

Life is too short just to waste on things that bothers you.

Make your time counts, every step of your way.

And never be afraid to Begin Again.
