Travel Alone Together

Does the idea of solo holidaying fill you with excitement? Or fear? Or even a little bit of both?

Travel Alone Together

Escaping the 9-to-5 and exploring the world is something that the majority of us long to try on some level. But the idea of taking such a step alone is often overshadowed by fears of the unknown. However, with a bit of proper preparation, a little bit of courage and the right tools at your disposal, a solo holiday or longer trip can prove a deeply rewarding and invigorating experience.

Meeting new people as a solo traveller

The anonymity that comes with travelling alone can prove liberating, but it is also a great basis from which to build friendships. Meeting new people whilst travelling has one main advantage – you instantly have something in common, a talking point. Swapping stories and advice is the perfect way to get to know other adventurous souls, and can be the foundation of lifelong friendships.

Solo travelling activities

Travelling or holidaying alone puts you in complete control of your schedule, and how you spend your time. This makes diving into activities and tours easier and a more spontaneous experience. Taking part in these organised excursions is also an excellent way to cross paths with people of similar interests. These interactions can be a form of company in the moment, or can last a lot longer.

Staying safe whilst travelling solo

Checking out the reviews of where you choose to stay using sites like TripAdvisor and other travel forums is a great way to ensure you will have a safe place to rest your head whilst on the road alone. Keeping your valuable items safe is also of a greater concern when travelling solo – you are solely responsible for keeping an eye on your possessions at all times! Storing your vital documents in a DropBox file minimises the risk of you misplacing them, and little tips and tricks like hollowing out a lip-balm case to store your cash are invaluable.
