These days, traveling solo is not a new concept as there are a lot of people who made the decision to stop making plans with their gang and take a trip on their own. Contrary to what most people think, traveling solo is not about being all on your own. In fact, it is the perfect opportunity to meet new friends and you won’t get to spend a lot of money for say, bungee jumping, when you don’t really want to do it. This is also the perfect opportunity to find yourself without going for total isolation. Plus, no one’s going to call it bluff when you embellish some facts because no one was there with you. If you are thinking about going solo in Europe, here are some suggestions as to the best places to go to.
One of the places that draw solo travelers to Switzerland is Interlaken which is the sports capital of Europe. Going solo is surely a great thing when you are planning to spend the trip doing something that most of your travel buddies are not into. This is especially true when you are in the mood for some active sports and not just for sightseeing in the country. There’s much to choose from when you are in Interlaken from skiing, white water rafting, mountain biking, canyoning and so much more.
Who said you wouldn’t be able to have a lot of fun when you go on a trip with yourself as company? When you are basking in the gothic atmosphere of the Czech Republic, you will surely lose yourself! There is a lively expat community here and there are free flowing pubs which are just the perfect thing for solo travelers who are looking for adventure. Unfortunately, prices in the country have increased when it joined the European Union but Prague is undoubtedly a place that you should visit solo.
There’s no point in having your friends along when you are in Ibiza to enjoy yourself because somewhere in a middle of a bar you will lose that friend anyway. Solo travelers who love parties will surely love the 24 hour partying in this place and there’s the sun and people who are single and highly willing to mingle.
Everybody has heard of Athens and a solo traveler who is planning to discover the magic held by the country surely appreciates starting with this place. Athens has a vibrant social life and of course, it has an ancient history which is known almost anywhere in the world. A lot of people travel to the country and solo travelers will surely lose themselves in the song and the wine, not to mention the beautiful people.
Although Venice is the place which has been famous for its canals, Amsterdam has its fair share of serene canals which weaves their way into the city. This is a beautiful place especially when you are traveling solo. If you have an eye for art, you will surely appreciate what Amsterdam has to offer. In fact, this place kind of grows on a solo traveler coaxing them to stay longer than they have been originally planning to.
This is that one place that you will not be afraid to visit unless you cannot speak the English language. As long as you can understand English, you can make your way through the city and get to enjoy the wonderful things that the place has to offer from its museums to its natural parks and, of course, famous structures. You would also love the bars and the shops which are almost everywhere in the country’s capital.
