Solo Travel


So you are planning a solo vacation!

Generally, when we travel, we are more relaxed, away from the pressures of everyday life, and we pay more attention to the little things in life. The fact that we are alone, not rattling all the time with our traveling companion, makes us more focused, more perceptive.

If you stop to think, many of these elements are present in our daily lives, but we don’t even notice them. Every little place in this world has its charms and it is when we travel that our senses are sharpened and we give real value to these little things that make us happy just by looking.

You get to do what you want when you want. You can connect with people if you wish or avoid them completely if you want to be alone. When you travel alone, you travel on your terms.

Making new friends during a solo trip will greatly depend on your temperament, your will and your goals during the trip. Alone, we are more open and more available to chat and meet new people.

You feel capable, powerful and happy to have accomplished something of your own!

Silence is part of a solo trip and he can be your great companion. Total and absolute silence, whether in your hotel room or visiting a place where you will not talk to anyone, may be the time to listen to yourself, understand your real wishes and desires. It can be a moment of contemplation and connection with nature if you are in a place like Atacama Desert, for example. It may be the opportunity for you to have a long conversation with yourself.  Try it!

You and you, what now? 

We all have fears and insecurities. No one is totally brave or totally weak. Being alone in a different location can make you feel these insecurities more clearly as you have left your comfort zone. But definitely not the end of the world! 

You will end up facing it and see that it is often silly and sometimes even true, but it can be managed. You will find that you can solve these issues on your own and without drama. You will laugh at some of your thoughts and will end your trip proudly for facing your little demons.

How to Make a Singles Vacation Truly Relaxing

The key to making your single vacation truly relaxing is making it all about you. Know yourself. Choose the amount of time, the location, the activities according to your needs. You don’t have to prove anything to anyone. You don’t need to meet anyone’s else’s needs or expectations. Go. Relax. Enjoy.
