Many do it. Some even swear on it. And others are afraid of it.
It is holiday season, you want to travel and see the world. What do you do if nobody wants to join? Very simple: pack your bags, grab your travel guide and off you go! Not only singles travel alone! Many people have reservations before their first solo trip. Most will confess that it took them little courage the first time. This is perfectly normal. Even the most experienced globetrotters suffer from travel fever before traveling!
Dare to do it, because it's absolutely worth it!
Whoever thinks that traveling alone is boring and lonely, is totally mistaking. If you travel alone, it does not mean you are going to be on your own. Especially on excursions and activities, meeting other travelers is pre-programmed. Often, a simple "hello" leads into a joint afternoon program.
In Europe you can travel alone in almost all countries without hesitation.
Gran Canaria is ideal for solo travelers. It is a beautiful place with great sights, well-connected and with European standards. There are fantastic excursions and activities around culture, beaches, nightlife, other islands, the inland and, above all, incredibly nice people. Gran Canaria is a destination that makes it easy to enjoy travelling alone.
Whether you are going to spend your holiday in Playa del Inges, Maspalomas, Puerto Rico or Puerto de Mogan, you will spend a relaxing time in Gran Canaria: bus tours, hiking, climbing, boat trips, water sports and bicycle tours make for a great all-round fun package.
Only pleasure determines the day
Travelling alone means unlimited freedom. The day is measured in waking up and tired, after desire, after hunger and thirst. When do you ever have the freedom not to have to constantly watch the clock? The freedom to only do what you want is simply great.
