As our world becomes smaller, and travel becomes more accessible, a special breed of people has arisen – the solo traveler. People from around the world are forgoing companionship, and exploring the world on their own.

If you love to travel, and want to make the most of your time, going it alone could be the perfect solution! Find it hard to organise adventures with friends? Why wait when you can join other fellow solo travellers on our adventure weekends.

Solo travel lets you forge your own destiny


One of the main benefits of solo travel is the opportunity it provides for freedom. Finding the time for regular trips away with friends can be hard. Organising dates, transport and of course the usual trip killer – getting the same time off, typically puts an end to the team dream.

Is there something you always wanted to do? Or maybe a destination you have always wanted to visit? Don’t wait around for the stars to align, you may never get that opportunity – don’t compromise your personal desires. The world is your oyster – you can go exactly where you want and forge your own destiny!

You don’t have to play by anyone else’s rules

In addition to the above, when traveling alone, you also don’t have to play by anyone else’s rules. The time spent traveling and exploring new destinations is yours. You can decide exactly what you want to do, and how you spend your days. If you want to visit a particular attraction one day, you can do that! Alternatively, if you want to spend a day relaxing, you can do that too.  Enjoy and make the most of your soloprenurship!


You can also boost your confidence and world skills

If you lack confidence, or simply want to broaden your horizons, solo travel is one of the best exercises to undertake. This type of travel forces individuals out of their comfort zone – you have to think for yourself, and rely on your own skills and common sense. The experience is liberating, and you will learn more about yourself, and what you are capable of. In addition to this, your confidence will naturally grow as you test your limits, and make decisions for yourself.

You can even meet like-minded travelers

Although most of your time will be spent alone, solo travel gives ample opportunity to meet fellow travelers! Stopping in hostels and joining group tours is a brilliant way to meet others. You can share your stories, make new friends, and get to know some interesting characters.

In conclusion…

Whilst traveling with others is reassuring, exploring the world on your own opens up a whole new world of excitement and adventure. If you are apprehensive about jumping into the world of travel on your own, why not start off with something small? You don’t need to immediately jump on a plane and travel to Antarctica!
