Breathe In, Breathe Out. Breathe In, Breath Out.
Are you in much need of a getaway that not only encourages but insists that you slow down, breathe in, breathe out, and just r-e-l-a-x. Is it time to give yourself the opportunity to reflect, give yourself the time to clear your mind and the time to give yourself the space to just be.
You’re not alone! Wellness travel is on the rise with more and more of us recognising the value it brings to our mind, body & soul when we give ourselves the permission for some time out. Wellness retreats and experiences are popping up all over the world from yoga & surf retreats to girls getaways in the desert, we know have a plethora of options.
Wellness travel is evolving from your typical retreat to include more adventure based travel for the female solo traveller. We’re looking for experiences that will provide connection with people and place, but we’re also looking for a challenge and what better way to do it than being surrounded by other female adventurers. Empowering women to embrace their inner warrior, adventure travel will have you making new friends and building confidence as you explore the world. It is the perfect opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and at the same time see & do something you never thought possible from a Cradle Mountain overland track in Tasmania to a 10 day Mt Kilimanjaro climb in Africa.
River, ocean or expedition cruise – the choice is yours! With cruise options available all over the world and your pick of 3, 4 or 5 star luxury you are guaranteed to find a cruise that will suit you. Many cruise companies are now offering no or reduced single supplements to encourage women to get onboard. Cruising can be a great way to have a degree of independence with the option to easily meet new people whether that be during dinner, at the pool deck or on a day excursion when in port. Cruising is also a great option if you’d like most of your travel costs paid for upfront as, generally most if not all, meals and drinks are included so its just a matter of budgeting for activities while you’re in port.
The perfect way to experience your first solo trip is by coach touring. You can choose small group touring so you’re still only travelling with an intimate group, you have a driver who knows the region and a guide who is either local or is very knowledgeable about the area. You will meet new people yet have time where you can be choose to explore on your own (providing you choose the right tour) and a lot of your experiences are included in your upfront tour cost making it easy to budget for. And touring is popular in many parts of the world ensuring that no matter what destination is on your list, it is highly likely that you’ll find a tour to suit your budget, timing and holiday type.
If you love experiencing new cultures, learning about people and what influences their way of life, then a cultural trip will be just what you’re looking for. From clothing to cuisine, a holiday that embraces a country’s culture will have you immersed in the destination, mingling with locals and experiencing firsthand what is important to them. You may want to learn the language, cook up local cuisine, visit an art gallery or meander through a museum. Whatever it is, you can do this as an independent solo traveller or look for a suitable tour or cruise.
The energy of a big pulsating city is like no other. The lights, the people, the noise, the smells, the activities make you feel alive. London, New York, Paris, Tokyo, Sydney…. There is just so much you can do in a big city but be sure to do your research first as generally it will take your longer to get around so you want to be efficient, check that the things you want to see and do are open on the days you plan to visit and look for tips on best days and times to visit popular attractions, restaurants, theatres, museums, parks, bar, sporting events, festivals and concerts.
