4 Reasons Why You Should Take a Solo Holiday

Travelling solo is a great way to challenge your boundaries and indulge in the things you love to do! It takes a lot of confidence and independence to actually get the ball rolling, but the benefits outweigh the worries by far!

Challenge Yourself

Use this trip to challenge yourself! Do things you wouldn’t normally do, and step outside of your comfort zone. Not only will you look back and be proud of yourself for doing something so different, you will also have some amazing memories to reminisce over!

Say goodbye to drama! One of the great benefits of travelling solo, is that you can do what you want, when you want (to a limit). Not having anyone to hold you back means you are free to roam Rome at 4am, or are free to go for a midnight walk along the beach! You can sleep in until 2pm, or get up at the crack of dawn! There is no one there to say “No, let's not do that, let's do this instead.”

Meet New People

Solo travelling lets you talk and meet new people of different ages, backgrounds, cultures, and religions. Meeting different people will broaden your view towards diversity, and will allow you to become more accepting towards the things that people around the world do differently, and their reasons for doing so. Who knows, you may even make some lifelong friends!

Better Yourself

As well as provide you with unbelievable memories, travelling alone can also help to better you as a person. Going solo can help you to become more independent. Working out how to use the foreign cooker in your villa, or getting across the local town by bus, can all make you a more independent person. Knowing that you are capable of doing all of these things alone is a huge achievement, and can often be a massive confidence booster.
