Why is it so important to travel alone sometimes

Of course, explore new places more interesting with someone, but what to do if suddenly your girlfriend or loved one can not keep you company. To take the tickets? Oh, no! We tell you why you can and even need to go on a journey in splendid isolation and what minimum safety rules should be observed.
1. No need to coordinate your plans with someone else

Imagine how great it is to fall where you wanted to go, without coordinating their actions with another person and without thinking through a joint route to all was comfortable. You can trust your intuition and listen to your desires. In addition, this is a great opportunity to catch last minute tours or promotions, without explaining why now you need to go to this country or city, and not somewhere else.

2. Tickets will be much cheaper If, say, it was a one-time action and there was only one ticket, you can safely buy it, and not sigh in disappointment, because your companion suddenly did not have enough space in the cabin.

3. Have time to be alone with yourself

You can devote all your time to yourself, isn’t that wonderful? For example, sleep as much as you want, and not to get up on the first call and trudge to the next historically significant places. Or, on the contrary, you can get up at the crack of dawn and quietly explore the area until annoying tourists came running. Meditation, favorite books, yoga, parties or Hiking while you have the strength – you plan your day and do not adapt to other people.

4. Don’t share your room with anyone else

One of the main advantages of “lonely” rest – you can find a new company, and then, if you want privacy, just go to your room, and not to adapt to someone just because you are with this person to share a room until the end of the holiday. Besides, if, say, new acquaintances bored you, you can always meet someone else. When you travel together, you can’t take that liberty. Continue reading

How to plan an unforgettable vacation without the involvement of travel agencies

In order to spend an unforgettable holiday in any country of the world, it is not necessary to contact the tour operator or the Agency – any independent travel will be many times more interesting than “on the ticket”. Passion.ru talked to seasoned travelers and found the main principles, following which you will be able to experience and benefit from his trip.
Why and where are you going?
This is perhaps the main point, having decided on which you will be able to plan everything else. Answer the question what attracts you: cities and museums, nature reserves and parks, shopping and entertainment, local delicacies and culinary traditions. Or do you even dream of a “vegetable” holiday and plan to spend the next two weeks on some exotic beach, which is known only to the locals? All this will help you to determine the key points and get the most impressions from the trip.

Check your calendar
One of the main points, which many tourists forget, but in vain. For example, you decide to go to a hot country and relax on the beach, but at this time there is still a rainy season, so it is likely to spend most of the holiday in the hotel, museums or bars. In addition, it may be that the sea has not yet warmed up, and the reserves are closed, and there are not many people in the city, so there is nothing much to do. Therefore, learn in advance about the climate of the country, about the schedule of institutions and the upcoming national holidays (so that it does not happen that you came to rest and get to some noisy celebration, like a carnival).

Gather information about the country and make an action plan
Even if you have chosen a destination that you have visited before, it will not be superfluous to find out what has changed in the country since your last stay, what laws have been introduced for tourists (sometimes this happens, what was allowed before, now was banned), what new places have opened and so on-so on. After all, perhaps before you were passing and did not have time to learn everything properly. Therefore, to this time the rest did not get crumpled, it is better to know everything in advance and prepare. And if you have chosen the country where you have never been, then you should start by studying (or even buying) a guide and determining the main places that you would definitely like to visit.
