Keys To The Perfect Solo Adventure.

Michael Huxley Himalaya Road Trip Mountains

Solo travel is the best way to travel, and in recent years has become an increasingly acceptable way to see the world. Today’s traveller has a whole host of advanced technology at their fingertips to make life easier and with instant communication with anyone anywhere in the world available at your fingertips, solo never has to be lonely. In this day and age solo travel is not only acceptable, it is desirable.

There are many benefits to solo travel, from quite often being cheaper than travelling in a large group to the common feeling of having a more profound experience. People often find themselves interacting with strangers and locals more when they travel solo and others tend to be quicker in speaking to you or lending a hand, and it is even easier to travel permanently and work remotely thanks to the proliferation of global communication. Mobile apps make those long overnight coaches a lot more fun than they used to be, with movies, binge watching TV series, a whole library of books in the palm of your hand and even playing games. Smartphones really have changed the game with solo travel.

So now you are sold on solo travel, where do you go?


Solo travellers are nothing new in Paris. This beautiful and historical city is an expats paradise and is filled with bistros and cafes, just waiting to welcome the solo traveller.


Bali has been a solo travel mecca for decades now, but really exploded in popularity in the last 10 years or so after that infamous movie that shall not be named. Most travellers come here to have fun and party on the beach, but there is so much more history and culture on this tiny island for those who take the time to search for it.


Seville is the capital of the province of Andalucia, and as legend has it is the birthplace of the passionate flamenco! A legend you can easily believe once you have visited the old gypsy neighbourhood of Triana. With a ton of impressive sites, including the grand cathedral, and plenty of things to keep you occupied, not to mention all that tapas, Seville is a perfect city break destination for the solo traveller!


Most visitors to Ireland end up at Dublin at some point, to the point that it is almost an ubiquitous Irish experience! The capital of Northern Ireland really is an Irish cultural powerhouse, so enjoy the amazing architecture, the museums, the multitude of pubs all claiming to serve the best pint and take a Guinness tour or two and the ‘craic’ with the locals.

Solo travel really is one of the best ways to travel, and I hope this article has given you a little bit of inspiration to get out there and travel on your own a little bit more! What’s stopping you?
