Tips & Resources | The best things about travelling solo

The prospect of travelling on your own can be rather daunting. However, when you really take the time to consider all the amazing benefits of a solo adventure you may find yourself quite attracted to the idea, after all, as Oscar Wilde said:

“It’s very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person.”

At Woods Travel, we go the extra mile for our solo travellers by offering a number of singles holidays, and arranging a ‘no single supplement’ on many of our tours.

If you still need convincing, here’s a few of the best things about travelling solo:

Comfort zone? What comfort zone?
Removing yourself from your everyday routine allows you to experience life in a whole new way. It gives you the opportunity to learn things about yourself you never knew before, and understand yourself in ways you didn’t even think possible. You’ll experience the most wonderful sense of achievement as you visit new places and meet new people.

Of course a massive part of the travelling experience is the people you meet along the way. By travelling solo you have the opportunity to build relationships with new people, perhaps other’s travelling on their own! You’ll be amazed by the amount of people enjoying the same experience as you, with the same interests and aspirations; it’s a wonderful opportunity to make some brand new, life-long friends.
