Top Reasons Why Travelling Solo Might Be Just What You Need
Holidays as a single person can sometimes seem like a drag – watching happy groups of friends having fun together, making memories that last a lifetime and creating special bonds that you seem to be missing out on. Never fear though – because singles holidays, or that is to say, going on a holiday by yourself can be just as richly rewarding an experience as going with others, and sometimes even more so. Travelling alone has a certain appeal to it, but if you aren’t sold on the idea, here are some great reasons travelling solo is sometimes preferred.
You Meet Others Easily
Meeting people sounds like it’s difficult, but when you’re travelling solo, it actually becomes easier. People are more likely to ask a solo traveller to join their group or if they’d like to have dinner with them than if a person is with a partner or friend, so travelling alone can actually help you make new friends! Not only that, but many hotels offer excursions that are often done in groups and tacking onto these as a solo traveller is a great way to get to meet people as well. When you go on a singles ski holiday, for instance, you can often share ski lifts and buses to different hills with many people from your hotel, so you can easily slide in with them and meet tons of different people.
You Don’t Need To Think About Your Group
It might sound selfish, but when you travel alone, you don’t need to think about your group. You can get up early, sleep in late, eat dinner at whatever time and come and go as you please without worrying that you might bother someone or someone is getting annoyed at your schedules. You can honestly do what feels right to you – after all, it’s YOUR holiday!
You Can Do What You Want
Speaking of it being YOUR holiday – another great reason to travel solo is the fact that you can do whatever you want! It’s a great little perk meaning you don’t need to tag along with someone who wants to go souvenir shopping or you don’t need to go to that one restaurant everyone keeps wanting to go to. You’re free to do what YOU want. Win-win, right? Don’t stress about needing to worry about who wants to do what and when. On your solo holiday, you call all the shots.
Ever go on a holiday with friends and someone ends up falling out with someone else over something stupid? It happens more than you think and it can be a real downer for people who are on the trip as well being left in the middle and sometimes in the lurch when people are at loggerheads. What better way to ruin a holiday than by having drama rear its ugly head? The bonus with a solo holiday is there’s never any drama between friends – ever!
So whatever your reasons for wanting to head out on a solo holiday this year, hopefully these fab tips and reasons for choosing a solo trip will help you make plans for a trip you won’t soon forget!
