5 Reasons Why You Should Solo Travel in 2023!

After the events of the last few years, many people are looking to make this year a year for new beginnings and exploration. One of the common problems for keen explorers is finding someone to travel with, so this year, why not take the plunge and plan a solo trip? Here are five reasons why you should take a solo trip in 2023!


When you travel alone, you can really get to know yourself. Whether it's meeting locals, trying different cuisines or simply spending time away from it all, solo travel is an opportunity for personal growth and self-discovery that can't be replicated any other way. By taking some time from your everyday life to reflect on who you are and what makes you happy, you can return feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Unplug from your everyday life

If the last few years have left you feeling drained, this could be exactly what you need! Solo travel allows you to detach from everyday life's stresses, giving you space from people and everyday issues. Taking a break from work emails, social media notifications, and other daily distractions allows you to relax and focus on yourself without being affected by external pressures.

Make new friends

Let's face it - there's nothing quite like meeting new people while travelling! You never know who could spark an interesting conversation or even become a long-term friend! When we're used to our routines at home, it can be challenging to meet new people - but when travelling alone, we're suddenly thrust into an entirely different world full of potential connections.

Do it your way

On a solo trip, you've got nobody to answer to! There's nothing wrong with being a little selfish sometimes, so go ahead and do what you want, when you want, and enjoy every minute a freedom!

Travel with confidence

There's no doubt that solo travelling can feel daunting at first - but once you've taken that first step of booking your trip, everything else will seem much easier. As long as you plan ahead and leave plenty of room for flexibility in case you need to make some last minute changes (which is always possible), there's no reason why your solo escape shouldn't go off without a hitch! With careful planning and an open mind, there's nothing stopping anyone from having an amazing time while they explore the world on their own.
