How To Enjoy Group Travel For Introverts

It also favors the extroverts more because they won’t have difficulties in exploring new places, meeting new people, socializing with strangers, or being in a crowd for a long time. Meanwhile, they sound inconvenient for introverts. However, the introverts still can enjoy their travel to the fullest because they don’t have to constantly chat with strangers or staying in the crowd for too long. Besides, travel is much more than that. 

Introverts in a group travel

Here are things you can do to accommodate you being introvert in a group travel so you will still have fun without neglecting others in your group:

First, you need to be honest with yourself and others. Do not hesitate to tell others how you are feeling.

Thus, make sure to let others know what you want to do but be clear on why you want it that way. This may attract other introverts to do the same and you can make friends with them. 

You might be introvert but there must also be a longing for you to enjoy the travel just like others. Thus, don’t isolate yourself from others completely. Give yourself a chance to join others while having fun during the trip. You don’t have to do it for too long though. You can excuse yourself when you feel anxious or tired with all social engagement. Joining others in group can also give you some sense of belonging because you are travelling together after all. If you keep isolating yourself, you may miss memorable or meaningful moments you are going to regret later. 

Do not hesitate to ask for ‘me time’ when you feel need it. Constantly in a crowd can be uncomfortable for introvert. Be kind in informing others when you don’t feel like to join particular activity. You may need time to recharge yourself by having your own space for a while and that’s fine. There is nothing wrong with it. Even the extroverts need ‘me time’ in a group travel. Solo moments are not prohibited in group travel. You may need to allocate time to spend with group and yourself. Thus, you can still join group activities as well and have your own time during travel. By balancing the schedule, the trip will feel more enjoyable for you.

Signs You Aren’t Fit for Komodo Liveaboard Trip

We all know that Komodo Liveaboard is rising as one of the most favorite travel destination in South East Asia. Everyone talk about it, everyone rave about the wonderful sailing journey. The feeds of any traveler who just return from Komodo is heavily flooded with breathtaking panoramic pictures and awesome stories of their encounter with the Jurassic-esque Komodo dragons. 

Still, however, it’s a sailing trip. This kind of holiday is different from any other trip. Just like mountain climbing, a week of sailing trip to Komodo needs special preparation, especially on the health of your body. Of course, it needs special preparation—with heavy emphasis on your physical health. So, will you really fit to sail with liveaboard in Komodo? 

Signs You Aren't Fit for Komodo Liveaboard Trip

Signs You Might Not Ready for Sailing with Komodo Liveaboard

You Are Prone to Seasickness

One thing we really love from good quality Komodo liveaboard is the availability of creature comforts that we usually have to give up when we sign up on sailing boat. That means a lot of cushiony sofas in the loungers and comfy beds back in the bedroom to take a rest whenever the seasickness attacks. If you think your seasickness is treatable with medicine, go ahead. But if you think a week of sailing would be too much for your body, you might need to wait until you get back into prime condition. 

Other solution: you might want to consider sailing trip in shorter duration. Three days two night or single day sailing trip might be perfect to see what’s on Komodo without putting your body into stress. 

You Have Never Do Any Exercise Before

When you sign up for an adventure holiday in Komodo, your days would be loaded with activities! Mind you, these activities would require high stamina and durability. As Komodo sits right in the heart of Coral Triangle, of course diving is one of the most favorite things to do on Komodo liveaboard trip. Diving, however, needs prime physical health to execute a long, satisfying dive experience. Every arm movement, fin stroke, and defence against the currents require a lot of energy—especially as underwater environment 800 times denser than air. 

Hiking and trekking is the second must-do thing in Komodo. You need to do long trek to hunt the dragons, hiking a steep hills to reach Padar’s famous viewpoint, and exploring other islands. The Komodo National Park is not an amusement park. Each islands are let raw with high undulating hills and sloping valleys. Imagine hiking a small mountain, and doubles them up to at least five times. You need to have strong feet, regulated breathing, and overall prime body. If you haven’t take any exercise prior to sailing to Flores, your body probably would give up just when as the adventure begin. 

You Can’t Stand the Wind

The majority of people welcomed the opportunity to wear nothing but bikini or beach shorts all day long. After all, that’s how’s life in Komodo liveaboard! You wake up to dive, swim, sunbathe, have tropical adventure, and repeat. The whole salty air and tropical breeze are here to enjoy!

But some people are not that lucky. Some can get sick rather easily when they got prolonged exposure to open wind. If these people are you, you better bring along light jacket on the sailing trip or consider other option of travelling.
