In a world that is constantly adapting to our individual needs, the strive for independence is on the rise. Every corner of the world is now so accessible, and the temptation to step out on a solo holiday is greater than ever before.
The idea of going it alone for the first time can be nerve-wracking, so we’ve compiled a list of reasons that show you why an independent adventure should be your next move.
A true taste of freedom
Getting away from your day-to-day routine, familiar surroundings and daily comforts are some of the main reasons we venture on holiday. Yet, when travelling with a companion, we’re limiting what we can truly leave at home.
Taking only yourself and your luggage on a trip allows you full freedom from your everyday life.
Allow yourself to do what you want
There’s no need to compromise on which getaway to choose when there is only yourself to consider.
Perhaps you’ve always fancied exploring the sublime coastal paths in Guernsey, but never found anyone who shared your passion? When you strive for a solo holiday you can follow whatever your heart desires.
Meet like-minded people
Although you might set off on this journey alone, you’ll soon be joined on your break by other independent travellers.
The friends you’ll make while trekking across the snow-covered landscape in the Dolomites or walking among the trees in the Swiss countryside will share not only your interest in nature but also the precious memories and experiences that await.
Someone you meet along the way could even become a future travel buddy or simply provide you with great company for your trip. You’ll be able to make the choice as you wish.
Spend quality time with yourself
In our world of ultra-connectivity, it’s important to make time for you. There’s no better way to engage with yourself and recharge your batteries than on a solo getaway.
Witness the dramatic Gothic architecture in Whitby, or lose yourself in the breathtaking scenery in the German Alps. Whatever your interests, time spent indulging in them is sure to bring you closer to yourself.
Gain self-confidence to bring home with you
The nerves surrounding travelling alone will soon melt away once you realise how empowering a solo holiday can be. Plus, with arranged accommodation and an organised itinerary, your only concern is packing for your trip!
While we’d happily list the endless benefits of an independent adventure, the only way to experience it is to get out there and see for yourself. Once you have, you’ll wonder what you ever worried about.
