We all have vacationed with friends and family and have had mixed experiences, from rewarding to strained. But would you consider booking a solo vacation? Traveling of any kind will bring memories, but have you ever considered booking a vacation solo?
When you book a trip and plan to go solo there will inevitably be a moment that passes your thoughts of near panic, if you have never done this before, but veteran travelers have a few words of comfort for you.
When booking solo you will have glorious days when you set out to do just what YOU want and you will see and experience things you never would have if you traveled with a partner or family member.
Consider these few points:
When traveling alone you are forced to engage more directly with your surroundings – Many travelers have said they have much more intense memories of their solo vacations
You will be more approachable. There will be no partner or pal to keep you attention and easy/familiar conversation opening the opportunity to meet more people and engage in thrilling new conversation.
When choosing extra activities there is no one that can be let down by your choice but you! Any side activities you choose to do, you will get to pick. So if you do not want to spend the afternoon shopping, you can go to the beach or watch the local band at the pub, with no regrets.
Vacationing alone builds confidence! Stepping out to a new place with no familiar faces can seem terrifying. But when you travel with a small family owned company like Great Bike Tours you will find you are instant family.
You will make new friends; some may prove to be lifelong pals. We will make sure you are always in a safe environment. Our tour leaders are the best in the business, as far as we are concerned, or we would not have them on our team. We have rolling support on all of our rides. If you choose not to ride one day you can tag along in the support van and take photos or enjoy a day at rest. Remember – it’s your vacation!
