Traveling Solo? Here Are Some Amazing Destinations!Like1

Who says you can’t travel alone and enjoy it? It’s one of the most rewarding experiences you’ll ever have as you explore new places without being restricted to what the other person wants to do all the time. By traveling solo, you’re not influenced by your companion’s tastes so you can self-indulge in whatever the world has to offer you, and best of all, you can do it at your own pace. If you’re about to pack your bags and head out on your next solo adventure, consider visiting these amazing, solo-traveler-friendly destinations!

Cuba

HAVANA UNLEASHED

Go to Cuba’s capital, Havana and immerse yourself in the colonial architecture, 50s Chevys and cigars! Explore all the hidden knick-knacks of this iconic island, like the artisan shops and back street restaurants. Since the crime rate is low, safety isn’t an issue.

Guatemala

THE MAYAN RUINS

Guatemala offers plenty of adventure to solo travelers. Go hiking, whitewater rafting, or explore the ancient Mayan ruins. You can also explore the jungles and get close to an active volcano.

Come to Alaska, where approximately 20% of visitors here are solo travelers like you. The snow-capped mountains, majestic icebergs, and glacier-carved fjords are breathtaking, albeit chilly. So bring a jacket, and a camera, cause you might see some whales too. 

Vietnam

FIND YOURSELF IN NIHN VAN BAY

From Cam Ranh Airport it is a 60 minute drive to the jetty where you then take a 20 minute boat ride to the island and reach Six Senses. It is a perfect place for a yoga retreat, a self loving nurturing journey where you can hike the highest peak, learn to cook healthy Vietnamese food and relax by the pool with a good book!

  • Found an oasis in the middle of the desert 🌵 
The season has started in the UAE for desert drives and camping! 
Happy Sunday everyone!
  • Click link in bio! ⛵️ I've just announced new dates for our Sailing in The Arctic Wilderness in Norway with @travelwithtjd for February 2019!! Join me together with @dennisstever when we sail the arctic wilderness in search of the northern lights! 
There is a reason why I keep going back to the arctic: now I have the chance to show you. The adventure and feeling in the north surpasses any other I’ve ever experienced before, I have difficulty expressing my feelings that describes the true reality of arctic silence, subzero temperatures and open waters. #TravelwithTJD
  • Hello Maldives and hello @joalimaldives 
Celebrating the official opening week of JOALI - A property that is very close to my heart with its’ core values, philosophy and management. Congratulations to the whole team for the successful opening!

  • Maybe, just maybe... a soul mate is someone who makes you feel like anything is possible... Let that sink in 💫
  • Sailing in the arctic... This is becoming my comfort zone 💫 #TravelwithTJD
  • On our first and last night in Tromsø, we woke up with this beautiful view from @radissonblutromso facing the harbor where our boat set sail from. Looking back at the memories, I still can’t believe how lucky we are to experience it all together. Some people at the hotel even said they could see the Northern Lights from here, despite the light pollution! Thank you @radissonblutromso for your incredible hospitality and for the beautiful room upgrade! Can’t wait to be back! #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • It was incredibly windy that day as we anchored on the island. Still, we managed to get to shore without falling into the freezing waters and I managed to get the drone up for a while. We kept on joking about it on the zodiac wondering what would happen if one of us falls off! I would have wanted someone to save my camera first! 😊 What will you save first? #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • I’ve always dreamed of sailing in the arctic and now, it’s been a re-occurring reality for me. To me, this is my reality, this is where I’m in my element, this is my life, with my camera in one hand... when I return right here, doing the things I love the most and where everything is far better than my dreams... everything in between is just a phase. You may or may not agree, but this is my back to reality life and I hope you see yours too 💫 #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • This is my second time right here on this spot. The first time I found this place, we were sailing in the arctic for the midnight sun and this time, in search of the Northern Lights on @travelwithtjd and both times with Dennis @dennisstever 
There is an unexplainable power that draws me to this island. Maybe because it’s uninhabited, with only a church and a graveyard... Or maybe it’s the rugged raw landscape and how comfortable I am with silence. Whatever it is, I wanted to show them what magic looks like. #TravelwithTJD
  • My beautiful reality shared with the sweetest and bravest new guests on @travelwithtjd 
On the first night, we arrived in Tromsø at @radissonblutromso and got ready to set sail in the arctic the next morning with @pukkatravels 
Emotions were running high, one of the bravest people I met on our group, strangers sailing alone together, they found the chance to do that one thing they never imagined they would, one opportunity to jump on, they took a deep breath, and felt the rush of adrenaline. . . 
Thank you @dennisstever for capturing this moment ♥️ #TravelwithTJD
  • Nothing but raw arctic wilderness and no place I’d rather be! 
Can you spot the snowmobile on the frozen lake?
  • I’m ready for the most incredible season of adventures beyond the arctic wilderness with our @travelwithtjd trips!
Are you? ♥️ PS: that’s the sun the clouds behind there!
