I was forced to wander, having no one, forced by my nature to keep wandering because wandering was the only thing that I believed in, and the only thing that believed in me.

Eli Broad

When people think of a vacation, they often think of traveling with friends and families to predetermined locations and experiencing all the sites. While these kinds of vacations can be exciting and a great way to spend a week or two, the solo traveler is exploring something far greater than the tourists traps and sights they pass by. The solo traveler is exploring themselves in the solitude and openness of the road. Plan A Solo Vacation Day encourages you to get out and explore the world on your own, and the self you find within it.

History of Plan A Solo Vacation Day

Are you ready? Ready to get out into the world and into your head and explore the self you are when no one you know is watching? If you’re single and unattached then this is an easy decision to make, you have no one to explain yourself to and no one waiting for you to get home. Does this sound lonely to you? Then Plan A Solo Vacation Day is absolutely for you. We’re so connected these days that we forget that we have to live in our own head, and too often try to drown out our inner self with noise and social media and music and TV. Getting out into the world on your own is a great opportunity to break this and find out who you really are.
But how do you do it?

How to celebrate Plan A Solo Vacation Day

It’s simple enough, and if you’re a little nervous than you may want to start with someplace familiar. Do you regularly travel with other people and have favored destinations you’ve been to? Start with one of those, and travel on your own to experience it through your own, solo eyes. Wherever you end up deciding to go, start from the beginning and plan out your destination while researching it, but don’t get caught up in the details. There’s always a danger of researching and planning and never follow through with it.

You can always start off your trip with someplace quiet and safe, bed and breakfasts are a great place to start, and there’s hundreds of them in every climate and destination type, from distant mountains to the ocean shore. Plan A Solo Vacation Day is your chance to finally get some real alone time, so get to it!
