Activities you can do while Solo traveling
TOP ACTIVITIES FOR SOLO TRAVEL
I enjoy traveling with friends because there is a sense of belonging to a community, accessibility to some activities you wouldn’t do alone, travel cost reduction, but, of all of the travel experiences I’ve had so far, some of my best memories end experiences are from my Solo Trips.
Why? Because when you Solo Travel, you are the most vulnerable, so you open up to what life will bring you. I don’t know, there is something so empowering and liberating about experiencing traveling on your own, that becomes like a drug.
If it’s your first time planning a Solo Trip, you should start with some places that are friendly for Solo Travelers and offer you countless adventures that will help you connect with other travelers.
Taking a Solo Trip is a fantastic way to know yourself deeper, to reinvent yourself, to be honest with yourself and most importantly, do whatever you like at your own pace.
If I’ve managed to caught your attention and motivate yourself on taking a Solo Trip, here are my

STAY AT A HOSTAL
A Hostal is a win-win on all areas. Allows you to stay onn the budget for your travel expenses, this way you can travel even more, but most importantly, gives you the chance to meet fellow Solo Travelers and why not, hang out with.
It all starts with grabing a food together and sightseeing.
WINTER GROUP ACTIVITIES
There are a few Winter Outdoor Adventures you can book to meet with locals, or tourist and learn a new hype activity.
You can take Ski classes, Snow Skating, Tobogganing or snow tubing.
My favourite one, Skating, which you will find in almost each winter location.
join a book club or open air cinema
I am a Bookaholic, so for me it’s very important to enjoy a nice reading while Solo Travelling. If you can find fellow travelers that love reading, go for it.
Not a Book fan? I got you covered. You can go for an Open Air Cinema, like in Santorini, to see Mama Mia in English.
PUT YOURSELF ON dating sites
Yes, let’s talk the talk. Tinder, or any other dating site can be a good way to meet locals or to have your personal local guide.
You could be surprised how sometimes you can find your Match or simply a good friend that will be more than happy to show you around and why not, keep in touch afterwards.
