If I do this, I just think I walk alone from spot to spot etc. I am social but I don't walk to people and ask them something, you know what I mean?
Yes, it works very well. Similar to Huntsman, I'm extremely introverted, but if needed, can be social. I prefer traveling alone and do so often within and outside of the country. These are mostly business trips, but I usually take a few days extra, especially if outside the U.S. I even meet my colleagues there rather than travel with them, and once there, I never spend my free time sightseeing and whatnot with them. Never.
I love going where I want, when I want, and dressed the way I want. Will be in Taiwan in a couple of weeks or so and Italy a few weeks after that, and, of course, traveling solo.
Of course my personal trips include family, and that's fine, because, well, I enjoy doing things with them, and because they know to allow me ample "space" for doing things on my own.
