Traveling solo can be even more liberating . The itinerary you set and all the decisions you make are yours and yours alone. You did not need to worry about any other person or group. Traveling alone is also a great confidence builder. At times it can feel a bit lonely, but that is just for a small period of time when u start experiencing new world you forget other all things.
