Travelling Alone Doesn’t Have To Be Boring

If you’ve travelled with a friend or your family, you know the joy of sharing the holiday experience with others. It’s not just camaraderie; you’re sometimes persuaded to see and do things you wouldn’t normally do. Travelling solo doesn’t mean you need to compromise the joy and excitement of a holiday. Don’t let travelling by yourself stop you from taking a dream vacation. Here are some tips and ideas to consider if you’ll be vacationing alone. 9999

First, decide on where you want to go. While quiet, tranquil destinations sound ideal, you may find you get bored. Try to find places with lots of sights and things to do.


If you like the sound of meeting others, then cities with lots of nightlife options are worth considering.

If you like a beach vacation, choose destinations close to the city and sand.

Likewise, if you want to do some hiking, choose a vacation spot with a big city nearby to enjoy the sights and take in the great outdoors.

Guided travel is another option that can be ideal for individual travel. Not only will you be with a group of other tourists, but your itinerary will also be planned out for you. You would be surprised at how fascinating some sights can be; on your own, you may miss them by talking yourself into staying at your hotel. You can find travel tours that include your hotel, a daily sightseeing trip, meals and many activities to keep you busy from arrival to departure. Another option is taking a guided day tour; these allow you more flexibility to revisit the sights on your own. Travel tours can be researched and booked online or through a travel agency.

The California coastal cities are a fantastic option for the solo traveller. San Francisco has an abundance of sights, the wine country is nearby, and the beach city of Santa Cruz is within driving distance. Los Angeles is full of Hollywood sights, amusement parks and world-renowned beaches. If you prefer the East Coast, New York or Washington DC.; there are plenty of museums, shows and activities to keep the individual traveller occupied.

In any case, I suggest the lone traveller make travel arrangements in advance. The frustration with hassles is doubled when youíre travelling by yourself. Also, prepare yourself for some quiet time. Bring some good books and magazines to read. It’s worth bringing a laptop to keep in touch with friends and research activities in your vacation city. Writing a blog is another way to occupy yourself; sharing your travel experiences on a blog is like chatting with a travel buddy about your trip.

Travelling solo doesn’t have to be boring or lonely. On the contrary, it can be quite enjoyable and exciting. Do some research, consider tours and make your travel arrangements in advance.
