Move on by exploring the world
There are many reasons why you should travel on your own. It allows you to better mingle with the locals and get to know their culture, and it pushes you out of your comfort zone. You get to visit the places you want without worrying about a group decision and it gives you the confidence to conquer new adventures. Traveling solo is an eye-opening experience that helps you realize that there’s more to the world than you know and that there’s so much waiting to be explored.
Last April 28, Traveloka launched a new “Get Up and Live” video that focuses on this aspect of traveling: realizing that there is so much more for us to discover if only we have the courage to get up and live. The video tells the story of a young woman named Sam who had just broken up with her boyfriend.
The video begins with Sam recording a vlog, sharing to the viewers that she has decided to travel. She books the trip with Traveloka and everything goes smoothly. That is, until she arrives at her destination and is constantly reminded of her ex by the things and people she encounters. In the end, the said encounters help her realize that getting hurt is a part of life and that there are times when it’s better to be alone. By the end of her journey, Sam realizes that there is a bigger world out there waiting for her and she makes the decision to travel again — with the help of Traveloka, of course.
The sentiments from the video’s viewers are the same: they can relate with what Sam was going through, even her decision to travel. Some viewers also said that they remember or know someone who went through or are going through the same experience. Some even tagged their brokenhearted friends, urging them to go on a solo adventure of their own.
With the help of this video, Traveloka hopes to inspire more people to travel not just for Instagram-worthy experiences, but also to learn more about the world and ourselves. All it takes is for us to get up and live.
