Ever thought about travelling solo?
Travelling solo can be one of the most exciting, eye-opening journeys you will ever experience. Travelling solo offers freedom, opportunities for self-reflection and growth.
When you travel alone, you travel on your terms. You can connect with people if you wish or you can avoid them if you fancy a bit of peace and quiet, you travel on your terms.
Travelling solo means that you can choose your own itinerary, you don’t need to consider others and what they want to do, where and what they want to eat, you are completely free to choose what to do and when.
If you have never travelled solo before it can also be a bit daughnting. One of the concerns for solo travellers is safety and while you should definitely be cautious, you should not let it hold you back from heading off on your next adventure.
Where should I travel solo?
Picking the right destination can make all of the difference to your trip, some places are better suited to travelling solo than others. At Spirit Journey Worldwide we know our destinations and so we can help you choose your next adventure to ensure you feel safe and confident.
What else can I do to ensure I feel safe travelling solo?
Travel insurance is always a good idea, as is telling your friends and family where you are going, maybe checking in with them at an arranged time. There are apps that you can use too, like find my friends making it easy to find friends and family that are connected to you.
Will I get bored?
When you are travelling solo you can at times get bored or lonely but finding ways to keep yourself entertained and challenging yourself is a way to combat this. Being curious about exploring a new city or heading off on a new adventure on a bike or visiting a museum or art gallery where you can take as much time as you want will ensure that boredom doesn’t creep in.
