Travelling solo could be one of the scariest things you've ever thought about doing – but it will actually probably turn out to be one of the most liberating.
We all catch ourselves dreaming of escaping to far-flung shores from time to time. Rather than depositing the office telephone from the 5th floor or telling your friend Janet that you're not really too interested in hearing every detail of her newborn's bowel movements, actually treating yourself to some time away is the solution.

Being a single traveller opens up a world of possibilities to you. Unfettered by the desires of anyone else, you are utterly free to fulfill your travel aspirations. Often the only thing that gets in the way is fear; the closer you come to booking your trip, the larger your worries seem to loom.
They often say that travelling broadens the mind, it offers curious travellers spectacular landscapes, thrilling adventures and life-changing experiences. Over the years, we have seen first hand the forging of lifelong friendships, relationships, and even marriages, all from just a band of strangers getting together over their love of travel.
Travel isn’t just about the places you visit and the photos you take: it’s just as much about the people you meet along the way and the ability to make life-long memories and friendships and share experiences. Of course breaking free from your routine can be quite a daunting challenge in the first place, and it takes a certain amount of gumption to have the commitment to try something new: especially when that something is getting off the sofa, veering out of your comfort zone and visiting a new country half way round the world, perhaps one where they don’t even speak a word of English. But the people you’ll meet while travelling solo will make it worthwhile. And travel is so rewarding, especially when you’ve got the support and guidance of a good travel company to back you up and someone in their office who can talk you through the options.
