Why Going On A Solo Holiday Will Change Your Life

 

A lot of people find it very difficult to spend time by themselves, which often seems like a strange concept to many introverts, who simply love recharging and wandering around alone. But there are those of us out there who are extroverts – we take our energy from the people around ourselves, and we get disconcerted and bored if we spend too much time alone. But what happens if you want to go on vacation and there isn’t anyone to take with you? There are plenty of reasons that could be the case – bereavement or divorce or maybe the simple reason of your partner not being interested in the same things that you are. But never fear – a solo vacation might change your life…

You’ll Be Able To Do Exactly What You Want

There’s nothing better than being absolutely selfish. A lot of women spend their lives doing what they think is required of them by their partners, their kids and their parents, which means that their own wants and needs often end up at the bottom of the list. But going on vacation by yourself means that finally, for once in your life, you’re prioritising yourself. Look for companies like Just You that specialise in solo holidays so that you can choose exactly what you want to do, without worrying at all about anyone else’s opinions. You could take a backpack and simply go off by yourself or you could go for some guided tours instead. No matter what you do, you’ll feel absolutely thrilled at waking up each morning and setting your own schedule for the day.

You’ll Make New Friends

Particularly if you go with a tour group, you’ll soon find yourself making new friends. If you’re going on a specific vacation, like the hottest music spots in Nashville, or an adventure vacation in the Alps, or a religious pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, or a historical tour of the First World War battlegrounds in France, chances are the other people who have chosen the same vacation will have similar interests to you so you’ll get along well. Remember that they don’t have to be best friends for life – you don’t have to worry about keeping in touch when you’re home. Sometimes the people you meet are perfect friends for that time and place in your life, and it’s okay to leave it there.

You’ll Find Yourself While You’re There

There’s nothing better than travelling by yourself to get to know yourself better. You’ll find that you’re more brave and capable than you ever thought possible, and being alone with your thoughts might help you realise that actually, a lot of your thoughts are pretty darn intelligent and worth listening to. You could start the novel you’ve always wanted to write, or you could take along your sketchbook to draw without being interrupted by your partner, or you could take your kindle and rip through as many detective novels as you want to. No matter what you want to use your vacation for, you’ll become more in touch with yourself.

    I think the best part of solo travel is meeting new people and making new friends with complete strangers. It only proves that solo travel is not always lonely.
