Solo Travel – Escaping Your Comfort Zone

Congratulations! You have booked your flight abroad and are ready to take on the world as a solo traveller. Wait. Hold on. Not so fast! This would be a great idea if you are an experienced solo traveller, but for those who have never travelled alone, remember, you have to learn to walk before you can run. Solo travel is much like training for a marathon. One step at a time.

“Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go everywhere.” – Mae West

Solo travelling can be intimidating for those of you who have never tried it before, so my first recommendation would be to start small. The following are baby steps to travelling solo:

  • visit your favourite local weekend destination. You may even already have a favourite hotel or B & B that you like to stay at. This is even better, as the fear of solo travel is the unknown, so book it!
  • do your research to determine what your destination has to offer. Whether it be cute little shops, wineries, cycling tours along a river, be sure to create an itinerary. If you don’t do this, you will find yourself sitting in a room alone trying to figure out what you want to do, all while feeling sorry for yourself. This defeats the purpose of travelling solo.

Solo travel is all about discovering your inner strengths, connecting with people, nature and culture, as well as getting out of your comfort zone. Feel the freedom of solo travel and get out and explore your surroundings. You deserve it.

The benefits of solo travel
Sometimes we all need solitude in order to reflect and find ourselves. This is one of the many great benefits of solo travel.

I hope you enjoy your first solo travel experience. If you are anything like me, you are probably hooked now and ready to move on to the next step. Remember, one step at a time.
