Why everyone should embrace solo travel

"This freedom allows for a truly authentic and in-depth personal experience"

If you haven’t done it before - solo travel feels terrifying. If you’re a regular solo traveller - the nerves can still kick in. 

Solo travel has become a global phenomenon, capturing the hearts and minds of people seeking self-discovery and personal growth. But it’s not just about growth - it’s about rest, relaxation, and doing something for you, by you. 

Think of the greatest treat you could possibly imagine. Then expand that by 10. And that is solo travel. You’re rewarding yourself with exactly what you want to do. 

There is serious unparalleled freedom up for grabs here. When you're on your own, there are no compromises or negotiations about where to go, what to see, or when to wake up. The world becomes your oyster, and every decision is yours to make. This freedom allows for a truly authentic and in-depth personal experience, as you follow your gut instincts and explore adventures, relaxation, or anything you want to do.

It might sound scary, but solo travel is a journey within. It provides a unique opportunity for self-discovery and introspection. Time by yourself to reconnect, treat yourself, experience the things you enjoy doing, all become incredibly relaxing. Sightseeing or hiking by day, and relaxing or treating yourself to your favourite cuisine in the evening, all become incredibly purposeful. 

It feels scary because you’re putting yourself outside of your comfort zone. A new area, a new country, and solo. But the growth on the other side can be life changing. You realise you’re confident, comfortable, and it gives you a clearer perspective. Solo travel is a time to unwind, go back to being you, and treat yourself for everything you enjoy. Take yourself out for that meal, enjoy that glass of wine, seek out the best brunch food, visit the art gallery or climb the mountain you’ve always wanted to. Because, what is stopping you?

There are obviously caveats with solo travel. A solo female traveller - tell people where you’re going, update them on the way, tell the bar or restaurant staff you’re here solo and they will look after you (i promise). You become hyper aware when you’re solo, but you also begin to realise who you are. It’s a time to re-connect with yourself, experience new things, and start ticking off that bucket list.
