Roaming Solo

Jan 10, 2024 | Popular Reads, Travel Tips

A solo tour used to be viewed as something that was daunting, lonely and in some people’s minds a little odd. In recent years, this has changed dramatically. The amount of solo travellers has risen post-pandemic with 54% of travellers wishing to travel independently according to post covid-19 travel research. If you have been thinking of venturing solo for the first time; we’re here to tell you why you should.

Discover Yourself and the World Around You

You spend time with yourself more than anyone in your life. This is why many are booking a trip to understand themselves better. Travelling solo is empowering, it’ll encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and to grow as a person. Instead of relying on someone else, you will finally get the chance to trust your gut feeling and gain confidence and a better understanding of yourself. Just like the ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ movie, it is truly an empowering journey of self-love. Why not experience part of Julia Roberts’s journey on our 10-Day Bali Tour?

If you’re worried about not speaking the local language then take this as an opportunity to not only make friends but to challenge yourself to learn something new. This could be by downloading a language learning app such as Duolingo. By doing this you’ll build your confidence before your flight even leaves. If that seems too overwhelming, a translating app that records your voice can be used for basic conversations.

Forming Friendships

Take that leap to become the first to break the ice, ask others if they’re solo travellers themselves, or how many countries they’ve travelled to. You can even talk about what you’re most looking forward to doing at the destination you’re at – it can be as simple as trying out their local cuisine. Meeting new people along your travels is the best way to learn more about yourselves and the world around you by gaining first hand experience.
