When you are a single woman you tend to notice even more how many great holiday packages and offers there are for couples available these days– romantic weekends, city breaks, exotic trips, etc. But what can you do if you aren’t in a relationship, but you still have a thirst for traveling and adventure? Just because you are single doesn’t mean that you have to forget about holidays at all – on the contrary, it might actually help you a lot and give you a peace of mind and something new to focus on. Who knows who you might meet while sunbathing?
Of course you need to consider some basics when booking a holiday alone. First, choose a destination which truly attracts you and learn more about it. Don’t go where everyone else goes, but pick a unique place that will feel special. Italy has some wonderful cities and small towns and the countryside is simply amazing.
Second, think of the type of holiday that you need – a beach holiday, a mountain resort stay, a sightseeing tour in a big city, a safari or a trip? Third, decide whether travelling alone is the best idea. If you can’t imagine being on your own throughout the entire holiday, try to organize something with a fellow single friend of yours or with a group of friends.
You could also join a meet up group online which organizes trips. This is a great way to experience something new and make new friends. This way you can continue meeting up with these people after the trip and organize more events. It’s great to travel this way, because you get to meet new people and nobody would judge you for the fact that you are single. You will feel great and surrounded by people who have similar tastes to yours, which is always nice.
If you want something exciting, why don’t you go to an exotic destination that you’ve always wanted to visit? The Caribbean, Brazil, Maldives, New Zealand or Thailand are not reserved only for couples. They will take your breath away with their stunning scenery, magnificent nature and pristine sandy beaches. You will instantly feel better just seeing the crystal clear waters and feeling the sea breeze. There is really nothing better than that.
And if you get bored, you could take a dance class (in the Caribbean), meet the locals and try bungee jumping (in Rio), scuba diving (in New Zealand) or riding on a back of an elephant.
Don’t forget to take a good camera and you could even keep an online blog about your travels. This way you could inspire other single women to do the same – be brave and go on holiday alone.
