Travelling is an exclusively personal thing. Even if you travel with a friend, roommate or spouse, you still have your own personal ideas of what you want from it and where you see yourself visiting. It’s that personal need that makes many people travel solo and experience the world through their own eyes, on their own schedule. If you are one who would rather travel solo than with a partner, keep reading as we are going to share some of our favourite solo travel destinations around the world.
