It’s pretty difficult to put exactly how solo travel feels into words, but as that’s precisely what we’re here to do, here’s our best shot…

1. You’ll gain a sense of independence in a way that’s otherwise difficult to achieve

Whether you’re a social butterfly or tend to find yourself avoiding unfamiliar places without the company of someone you know well, you’ll gain an unbridled sense of independence throughout your MedSailors sailing holiday that’ll change the way you see both yourself and our beautiful planet.

2. Comfort zone? What comfort zone?

Your first solo travel day might rekindle some of the same feelings you had on your very first day of school. Unfamiliar places full of new faces can be pretty nerve-wracking but once you’ve made it through your first day, you’ll recognise that you really can do anything you set your mind to!

3. Say hello freedom 👋

If we’re honest, we think we’ve all felt (or will feel) a little trapped or stuck. It’s too easy to get caught up in daily life and forget that there’s a whole world out there to experience, whether it’s for a few days, a week, a month, or even years. The freedom to spend your time exactly how you want to is wildly liberating and good for the soul!

4. You’ll understand yourself


The notion of finding yourself is such a cliché, but there’s a lot of merit in there too. Solo travel can provide the space and perspective you need to figure things out; no excuses, no putting things off!

5. New pals


There’s something so unbelievably special about connecting with people you never would otherwise have met. And maybe your meeting could just be the start of a whole new and unexpected adventure together!

6. The perspective you need to invest in yourself


You’re the only you you’ve got, right? And since you’re stuck with you your whole life, you owe it to yourself to invest in yourself, to seek new experiences, learn new things and follow your dreams.

So on that note, why not book your MedSailors escapade and give travelling solo a go!
