Do you read a lot of romance novels and dream of faraway exotic beaches? Having a romantic dinner with your loved one in the middle of a wine vineyard in France or Malta or perhaps an old fashion carriage ride. I can tell you I’ve always dreamed of taking a carriage ride down the street with my significant other or filling a picnic basket with fresh fruit, wine, and cheese while relaxing under a palm tree. If you like snow maybe a romantic sleight ride is for you. Look for quieter more intimate places with special touches that have couples massages at resorts or offer dinner on the beach.
Places for romantic getaways: Paris, Italy, Fiji

We’ve all started at this point taking our very first flight to a far off destination. Have the jitters about flying? Perhaps your nervous about travelling to a country that doesn’t speak English. Don’t worry! Look for trips with shorter flights to get your feet wet. Try a vacation to Florida. For some areas like southern Ontario it’s only a few hours in flight time. You’ll be on the beach in no time and wondered what all the fuss was about. The more you adventure out of your comfort zone the more chances you’ll have to explore the world we live in.

If you don’t like big cities like New York try travelling to smaller towns, meeting locals, and shopping at local markets. Take a tour were you have dinner and learn to cook in a farmhouse from local residence. This is where you truly have a unique experience to see what the culture is like in another country. Taste the local wine, learn how to pick coffee beans and indulge yourself. A real culture seeker won’t be found sitting at the bar of a resort day after day. Most people today like to learn a little about the country they are going to visit.

If money is a little tight and you don’t mind sharing space in hostels than you might be a backpack traveler. Off season is usually a great time to pick up deals and flights.

Backpacking is a great way to get out and see the world, surround yourself with nature as well as meet new people along the way.

Solo travelling doesn’t have to feel lonely. Many people set out on vacation by themselves and travel all over the world. Staying in hostels, couch surfing, or backpacking through many countries is a great way to meet new people. Not everybody likes or has people to travel with on vacation. Solo travelers like to travel without the influence from others and it’s a great way to discovery yourself. Many countries around the world have single supplements making in more affordable today. Always look for countries that are safe for solo travelers. Seniors that are widowed, singles that are divorced can join group or bus tours giving them a little more comfort.
