There are a number of reasons why keen travellers might opt to take a solo holiday. Perhaps you want to build your confidence, meet new people, or simply want a break from your everyday life. Whatever led to your decision to go it alone, we encourage you to make the most of it.
From moments of peace to the taste of adventure, there is a whole world to experience in a solitary trip. Whether this is your first time venturing on a break by yourself or you’re well-versed in independent travel, read on to uncover all the ways you can have a prosperous holiday on your own.
Embrace the absence of noise
We live in a world of constant hubbub and distractions; sometimes it can be difficult to hear our own thoughts. When you take some time out in nature, to connect with yourself and the world around you, you can find an impressive space for reflection.
The calming experience of solitude will be so powerful, and you’ll want to bring the feeling that it evokes home with you.
Be open-minded to new things
We are accustomed to sharing our experiences in life, yet a shared event can often change your perspective. By travelling alone, you can fully immerse yourself in the trip and in fresh experiences.
To truly make the most of a solo break, don’t be afraid to throw yourself into it, reflecting on each adventure that you embark on. From trying different cuisines and discovering new sites, to the people you meet along the way; you’ll encounter it all unfiltered when you go it alone.
Choose the right break for you
You have full control over the kind of trip you decide to go on, without the stress of planning an itinerary. Choose to venture to the coast for some sunshine, travel abroad to embrace new cultures or stay in the UK to soak up the local history and glorious countryside. Whatever entices you, we’ve got a package that you’ll love.
Be careful to check the type of getaway you’re booking, as some holidays are not tailored to suit solo travellers and may charge a single supplement for those going alone. Ramblers Walking Holidays offers numerous packages without a single supplement, designed with those individuals in mind.
Make a record of your holiday
Take photos, send postcards, write a journal. Whichever way you choose to do it, remember to take a little bit of your trip home with you.
Whether you’re sharing photos with your friends and family when you get back, or simply looking over your collection of matchboxes - you’ll be able to take yourself back to the memories and let that holiday last just a little bit longer. Before you know it, you’ll be searching for your next solo expedition.
