Along with an increase with social media, I have also noticed a huge shift in people who travel. Meaning less and less people travel solo as time goes on.
Young Brits now travel in packs of 10 to 20, something I never saw 5 years ago. Why is that? Is it a need to constantly be connected to someone else?
Solitude has its rewards (in moderation of course), but is this constant need to be connected or chatting with someone needed?
Monophobia is a fear of being alone. Traveling the world by myself has spawn many lonely moments, but I never freaked out and seek solace by having a panic attack and need to connect with someone instantly.
Maybe I am just old school...I miss old school where people just randomly struck up a conversation. Now everyone walks down the street or sits in a bar texting their fucking brains out.
Going back to monophobia, hardly anyone travel alone anymore. Is it a fear of being alone or is it because of terrorism
