Last November I went away to Tokyo for the better part of a week by myself. The truth was my partner did not have time but I also really wanted to travel abroad alone, something I have not done, ever.
Time passed slowly enough for me to stop and look whenever I wanted; and time passed quickly enough for me to never want the week to end. Tokyo is a great city for traveling solo – it’s safe, convenient, and bursting with possibilities. Even after having visited three times I still haven’t gotten around to seeing everything I want to, but I will, eventually.
