Fun Things to Do When Traveling Solo

It can seem daunting to embark on a solo trip for the first time. Here are fun activities to engage in while traveling solo that will provide you with solid foundations to help maximize the time on your trip. I hope this list empowers you to go it alone and excites you for what’s to come.

Keep a Diary

One of my biggest travel regrets is that I never started keeping a journal when I started traveling alone. Thankfully, I can look back on my blog. However, it only represents a tiny portion of the places I’ve gone and my feelings and thoughts at the time. Even if you only complete a weekly write-up, have faith that you will genuinely value this handwritten time capsule of your life in the months and years to come. Additionally, it makes things a lot easier when you start writing your book and locate a person to play you in your biopic.

Enroll in a Culinary Class.

When traveling alone, learning to prepare local cuisine is a fantastic, hands-on approach to experiencing the local culture. Choosing where to travel in the first place is primarily influenced by the food there for some people. Enroll in a cooking class if you can, then dive right in. Invite some buddies over after you get home to demonstrate your new abilities!

Have a Solo Day

What better way to enjoy your solitary travel than to, well, actually spends some time by yourself? Use this time to reward yourself with a great meal or to stroll around and soak it all in. The superb method to have some R&R without the guilt accompaniment is to travel alone. Treat yourself like a queen or king, and make the most of the fact that you have nowhere else to be.


When you know how to break out of that funk, it’s relatively simple to avoid boredom when traveling alone. Hopefully, you found some ideas for things to do on this list if you were worried about what to do while traveling alone.
