You're single and failed to convince your friends or relatives to come with you on a trip? Who says that holidays must imperatively be spent with two or more people? Going solo on a vacation is actually a lot of fun if you do it right. Special offers you some tips for an unforgettable first solo getaway experience.

 

Ask and learn

Traveling mostly means traveling without having to share the costs of your vacation or benefit from those "couples" offers. However, some agencies offer trips and tours for singles who are hesitating to travel on their own; it's the perfect opportunity to meet new people and who knows, maybe even flirt with strangers or fall in love! It's important you don't pressure yourself, since your main goal is to enjoy your holiday to live life to the fullest, all of that while being single!

 

Where to?

Multiple destinations are possible depending on your wishes and expectations.
How about being part of a humanitarian project like Angelina Jolie? Before hitting the road, ask about the country's political situation and contact some NGOs with whom you could volunteer and live a humanitarian experience on the other side of the world.

For the adventurers searching for new cultures, traveling alone with a backpack, away from organized tours and tour guides, can be a real pleasure! Go and discover the heart of the country, take the train and go downtown, hang out with the locals, visit the local bars. Basically avoid touristic destinations and go for the common neighborhoods where you'll be able to experience the real culture of the country. You'll be surprised how much you can do when you feel free!

Be creative, let your imagination aside. Write about your feelings on a logbook, these solo holidays can make very nice stories!

In opposition, if you want to relax and pamper yourself, think about the Mediterranean islands, the Caribbean or perhaps a few days in Marrakech, Fez or Agadir for the most relaxing holiday under the sun, the good life, the cocktails on the beach and the mornings spas!
