I feel it’s safe to say that the stress of life in general requires each and every one of us to take a much needed mini holiday from time to time. Do you, or have you considered a mini holiday to focus on you and the opportunity for solo travel. It’s always perfect for the soul, and is probably the safest option for your body too. Some help with the planning to ensure that the adventure lives up to the expectations.
First and foremost, you need to consider what you actually want from the adventure. For most people, it’s likely some time for self-reflection and self-discovery. Therefore, you may want to consider renting out a small home or cottage for a weekend or week rather than a hotel. This gives you the ultimate foundation for spending your time journaling, or writing, yoga, or self-reflection. Likewise, it’ll enable you to relax and recharge with greater results.
If you plan to feed your soul during your travels, you should think about feeding your stomach too. Forgetting about diets and tucking into some delicious delicacies is truly one of the great benefits of any time away. While trips to restaurants are great, you may want to consider attending a local cooking class. Developing a new skill will make the trip feel all the more worthwhile. Crucially, the new recipe is something that will bring comfort to your soul whenever you cook it back home. It is a gift that keeps giving.
There are many reasons to choose solo travel over group travel, even when you’re not concerned about health risks or any other considerations. The fact is that it puts you in the driving seat and allows you to explore a destination in style and at your own pace. After finding a location that allows you to tick off some bucket list items, you must think about getting around. A private car rental is a good option for taking time out away from city lights and enables you to set your own itinerary, in your own time. If you’re visiting Western Australia for an adventure, check burswoodcarrentals.com.au to learn more and please remember you’re supporting local businesses. Plus, aside from the practical rewards, taking a drive through unfamiliar territories can be highly therapeutic.
Maybe you’re interested in a trip to explore the wonders of the Galapagos Islands, or you’re keen to experience a half day, or full day book trip in the Guanacaste province of Costa Rica with Tamarindo fishing charters? Maybe you’re excited about high level adrenaline rushes or are you just as excited to get your yoga on the top of a mountainside? There are so many ways that a solo adventure can go right for you and it’s all in the planning.
The fact that you set the tone with your rules of your solo travel is perfect for anyone wanting to feed their soul. It’s not only weekend city breaks or week-long retreats that can be used either. Many people find that volunteering abroad over an extended break is ideal. It serves as a milestone filled with highlights in your life, while the satisfaction of helping a community is an incredible thing. You can discover various opportunities by checking out gooverseas.com/volunteer-abroad. After a period of several weeks away, you may discover that your love of your hometown grows too.
Solo travel for the soul can take many forms, and gives you the chance to enjoy time away that you may not ordinarily choose. You can combine explorations of unfamiliar sights with self-reflection and a little relaxation. A few spa treatments can promote improved wellbeing from a physical and mental outlook. The fact is that even dedicating a little time to yourself after a difficult period of time can change your life for the better. You’ve never needed a trip like this quite like it’s required right now. Do not let the opportunity pass you by.
What are you waiting for?
I hope you enjoy reading and that I bring some inspiration (if needed) to take a short break away closer to home or a longer stay experiencing volunteering opportunities in Australia, New Zealand and many other locations in our shared world when the time is right.
