There are amazing benefits of traveling solo if you don’t mind such a trip. I laughed a bit after reading an article on jilted lovers who want to escape and heal gently (after being served an unsavory ‘breakfast’)!! Sincerely, there are times you need an escape from painful memories, all alone. And there are destinations that meet that need.
Traveling solo also affords you the opportunity to think, meditate, discover and reconnect with yourself. You also have the freedom to try out new experiences with little or no hindrance. And furthermore, you get to save some money spending on yourself alone.
I venture to recommend some of the best fun travel destinations for solo travelers around the world. For added benefit, take note of those places where you can spend less and still enjoy yourself thoroughly.
Iceland ranks number 1 among the safest places in the world. That is a strong selling point for tourism in the beautiful though small European nation. There are open lush natural spaces, wild vegetation, waterfalls, lakes, thermal pools and deliciously beautiful landscapes good enough any day for an outdoor person. And the mountainous region of Landmannalaugar looks eerily beautiful in winter, you need to see it. These landscapes are not far away from the capital city of Reykjavik, which is a bonus.
Land at the airport and start enjoying the scenery immediately. Here you can enjoy perfect time alone and get lost in deep meditation. You can easily take a tour using the popular car rental services also, especially around the famous Ring road. Whether you choose to go solo or with a friend, you will surely enjoy it.
