Many people are uncomfortable with the prospect of solitude, yet as Stephanie Rosenbloom suggests here, a little time to ourselves can be an opportunity to slow down, savor, and try new things, especially when traveling. Reflecting on the experiences of artists, writers, and innovators who cherished solitude, Rosenbloom considers how traveling alone deepens appreciation for everyday beauty. Walking through four cities—Paris, Florence, Istanbul, and New York—and four seasons, Rosenbloom extols the virtues of dining out, visiting museums, and pursuing knowledge, demonstrating how the moments we have to ourselves can be used to enrich our lives.
