As much as I enjoy traveling with family and friends, there is something very special about traveling solo. You have complete freedom to do whatever you want, whenever you want with no restrictions.
On my first trip to Ireland, I had planned on a group tour, but it was cancelled so I decided to take the trip and just go on my own. It was such a fantastic experience that I couldn’t wait to do it again.
Not only is it one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been but the people are so warm and welcoming, I immediately felt right at home.Planning was much easier than I expected, I booked my flight and hotels online and rented a car after I arrived. I followed the original itinerary of the tour but going alone gave me the opportunity to explore areas that the tour would not have taken me.
Most of the hotels I stayed at offered food and live music on-site or nearby, so I could enjoy a great evening out without having to drive.
Driving through the countryside, I loved being able to stop along the way for lunch or a cup of tea and not worry about following any set schedule. Your time really is your own when you travel solo, but you don’t have to be alone unless you want to.
People are always very interested to hear about your adventure and talk to you about your travels. They are happy to share information about great things to see and do in the area. I have met so many wonderful people on my trips and still stay in touch with many of them.The joy truly is in the journey when you travel solo!
