Ticket For One: Where Would You Go on a Solo Trip?


The scenic eye candy starring in Woody Allen's new movie Midnight in Paris made me want to book a trip abroad ASAP. Instead, I'm living vicariously through a friend who's planning an adventure to Paris on her own. Freshly single and getting ready to start a new job, she figures now's her chance to embrace her independence and experience the benefits of traveling alone. Wandering the city of lights as she pleases, she'll be free to reflect on herself and her surroundings, or you know, meet some handsome locals.

From California wine country to Montreal, we've already explored destinations for romantic getaways. But where would you go if you wanted to get away from everything and everyone you know, if only for a week or so?

I would also love to go to Australia for a solo trip. My aunt has traveled all over the world solo and she inspired me with her tales of the Outback.

The last time I traveled alone was a trip to Cedar Point. Super fun!! If I could go anywhere by myself, though, I'd go to Australia. I'm just so curious about it!

I travelled on my own for a week to a beach in the US. I did not feel comfortable enough to venture overseas for my first solo trip, but I did go several states away. It was a great experience and I didn't find it lonely or depressing at all.

Paris. It would be tres lonely, but oh well. Take lovely walks, eat fabulous food, visit wonderful museums, and hope to meet a distraction in a cafe.

Having traveled on my own (to Fiji!!), my next solo adventure would be Chile. I want to camp, visit little towns, brush up on my spanish, and just be me. Traveling alone is a joy for me, but I understand when others hesitate.

I had planned to go with alot of friends to Peru and hike to Machu Picchu. At the end everyone backed out but I still went. I don't regret it one bit. I met fantastic people and had that time to roam and explore Cusco. And I got to have a once in a lifetime experience of hiking through the Andes to Machu Picchu. I think sometimes travelling alone is a great adventure one should make if they can.

I will go to the beach, or maybe take an educational trip where I could go to different museums. But I don't think I can travel by myself. It sounds a little depressing.
