4 Places to Travel Alone

Note: I appreciate that we are all living through difficult times right now and COVID-19 has stalled a lot of travel plans. I do however hope the below post can offer inspiration for future adventures and a bit of content for when travel bans are lifted and life returns back to normal.

A few years ago I travelled alone and found it so empowering – being able to structure my day how I wanted, making new friends, dining solo and immersing myself in books whilst relaxing by the pool or on the beach.

Here are my 5 top picks of destinations for single traveller holidays if you are thinking of embarking on solo travel in the near future.

Bali

New York is so perfect for solo travel as there is so much to do in terms of activities, from Broadway shows, guided tours to simply wandering. It’s pedestrian-friendly and no one will bat an eyelid if you are walking around alone or dining alone in any of the eateries!

It’s super easy to navigate the city by foot or subway and I would recommend spending sometime in Brooklyn too!

Paris

Paris is always a good idea! This quote rings so true as every time I visit the City of Lights I come back utterly refreshed and happy. If you check in advance you can get some pretty decent deals on the Eurostar and you just have to live once and book those tickets! I always favour going on the Eurostar over flying as you get the scenic route as well as arrive at Gare Du Nord which is so convenient. For the amount of time you save it is worth it.

In terms of location, I would recommend staying centrally so that you can walk around easily!

Lisbon

Lisbon is an unbelievably underrated yet very accessible city full of sunshine, culture, panoramic views (as it is built on 7 hills), romantic cobbled streets and amazing food. It is perfect for a solo city break and there is so much to do and see.

I particularly loved the vibrant colours all over the city contrasted with its historical charm. With castles, colour and custard tarts to look forward to, it is perfect for a bit of food, culture and R&R.
