Welcome to summer! Here at Singles Travel Service, we love all of the seasons, but there is something special about summer. Summer means long days, warm sun, and plenty of time to be outside. Summer also means it is vacation season. For single travelers embarking on a solo adventure or a singles group guided tour, we have some summer vacation advice for how to make the most of your time away.
While there is something to be said for spontaneity, it’s never a bad idea to plan ahead. This means everything from the vacation destination, to what to pack, to activities during the trip.
Going camping? Don’t forget the bug spray, a light of some sort, and a portable charger for your electronic devices. (Yes, camping is meant to be a time to get away — but having some connection to the rest of the world is just good sense.)
Thinking of a hike? Then look into the trails and their difficulty in the location where you’ll be visiting. We’ve definitely learned the hard way by starting on a trail that was way harder than expected.
And if you don’t want to have every detail planned out, then plan that, too. Save one day for doing what you’ve liked best – or by doing nothing at all.
Savor Some Time Alone
Many single travelers join group tours to meet other like-minded and adventurous single travelers. And we love that! We plan our singles tours with many group activities in mind – from sports outings to cocktails and dinner.
But in between activities, one of the best pieces of summer vacation advice we can offer is to take some time alone to relax and recharge. Sit back on a lounge chair, take a quiet walk, read a book. These small activities go a long way in self-care and restoration.
In today’s age of social media and smart phones, taking pictures seems like a no brainer. So often people travel to a place just to take a selfie at that cool location. But on many singles vacations, you will be going, doing, thinking.
And sometimes when you are really having fun, you just forget to capture the moment because you are so into the moment. And that’s great. But you may only see Venice once in your life, and some snap shots of the city’s ethereal beauty will be treasured for a long time to come.
Keep an Open Mind
On singles guided tours, you’ll meet a mix of people from all over the world. You’ll hang out with people of different backgrounds, religions, political views, and cultures. One of the best things about joining a singles group tour is the learning experience from that amazing diversity. And, at the end of the day, you all have one thing in common – you all have a love for travel and joined a singles vacation.
Happy Summer Vacation, Travelers!
