This one evening, I was happily minding my own business – about to order my dinner at this street food stall, looking forward to half an hour of uninterrupted simply being with myself, when this dutch woman sits opposite of me. Eurgh. Really…what is it with people? I would never ever do that. If I saw someone sitting there on their own, I would not just waltz into their bubble and install myself smash bang in front of them.
There is a reason, they are there alone.
A few months on I realise it’s called ‘being social’ and that is what solo travellers do – it’s perfectly normal.
