Planning the Holiday of a Lifetime
Travelling solo means you are able to please yourself. Whether you have a desire to cruise around the world or climb the highest peaks, planning the holiday of a lifetime will be limited only by your imagination, budget, preparation skills and realistic expectations.
Holiday ChecklistIt is a good idea to plan your trip with as much attention to detail as possible. As a solo traveller you are responsible for making all the necessary preparations, including travel, budget, insurance coverage, research and itinerary. Whether it is your dream to spend time enjoying relaxing exotic beaches or exploring cultural sights once you have identified the source of your inspiration you will be able to plan your holiday of a lifetime with care.
Begin by creating a checklist as this will help you focus effectively. Produce a draft itinerary, budget list and task list, and include a contingency fund if possible. Researching travel agencies may also help you organise and plan specific travel arrangements.
Personal ChecklistYou are about to embark on your dream holiday so checking your personal wellbeing and fitness makes sense. A holiday of a lifetime is unfortunately not the kind of vacation most people are able to afford regularly, so in order to appreciate this travel experience giving yourself a personal MOT before departure is recommended.
If you are planning to trek rough terrain as you explore exotic rural locations, you will want to be able to do so with a comfortable level of fitness. Making a few lifestyle changes, if required, before your planned vacation will ensure you enjoy your travel experiences to the full.
