Reasons to travel solo

9 reasons why you should solo travel

  1. You can go whenever you want to. You don’t have to wait for anyone else to make up their mind or save enough money to go. When you travel solo, you can go whenever you want to and wherever.
  2. It’s challenging. But it’s a good challenge. Traveling solo will put you in a few unwanted situations, but you’ll learn how to handle it and solve it in the best possible way. And that’s how you’ll grow as a person, by doing tough things.
  3. Traveling solo can actually be more relaxing, because you don’t have the pressure of having to do anything your travel friend might want to do, or go somewhere you don’t wanna go. The only person you need to listen to is yourself.
  4. You’ll meet more people when you solo travel. We normally tend to rely on our travel partners so it’s not a given that we must meet other people. But when we travel solo, we’ll have to be more social, that is, if we don’t want to be alone. It’s also easier to meet other solo travelers because when people see you’re also traveling alone, they’ll more likely reach out to you. Most solo travelers always say it – the amount of people they meet while traveling alone is way more than when they travel with someone.
  5. It’s so much fun to travel solo. You might think traveling solo means you’ll sit in your bed alone, but it couldn’t be more different. When you travel solo, you’ll meet new people every single day, you’ll be able to choose which restaurants and cafes you wanna go to, you can decide to go wherever you want to go, and this’ll make it much more fun for you. You’ll get unforgettable memories that will last you a lifetime, you’ll get friends you’d most likely never meet if you always traveled with someone and you get to see all the places you want to see.
  6. Traveling solo will make you more independent. You won’t have much of a choice when you travel alone.
  7. You’ll grow immensely as a person, much more than you probably imagined. It’s not until when we come home when we realize how much we’ve changed, developed and grown as people.
  8. You’ll get to be alone whenever you want to. This is really important when you travel for a long time. It’s nice to be surrounded by people, but you’ll need your privacy as well. And when you’re traveling solo, you can just stray away from the crowd and go enjoy your own company.
  9. Traveling solo is awesome and it’s a unique chance for you to see what it’s like to be alone in a foreign country. Trust me, it’s not as scary as it sounds. It’s probably one of the most exciting feelings in the world.

Europe in the summer

The best summer cities in Europe

Want to go on a trip to Europe this summer? That’s great! It’s the best season to visit Europe – that is, if you like warmer weather. Europe comes to life during summer, people are happier, there’s tons of outdoor cafes to enjoy, and everything just feels much more alive. Europe is a great destination because it’s easy to travel around countries and cities. You just need to hop on a bus, train, or take a short flight, and you’ll be in another country within a few hours. It’s convenient, fast, and so much fun!

Here are my take on the best summer cities in Europe. Hope you’ll get inspired!

Lisbon, Portugal

What’s so good about Lisbon is that there’s so much to do around the city as well. Although you should set some time for the city itself, you can always hop on a train or bus, and you’ll find yourself in some of Europe’s most beautiful beaches. Lisbon itself is a city filled with old charm, cobbled stoned streets, beautiful architecture and fun street art. It’s one of Europe’s most affordable capital cities to visit as well so you won’t have to worry about leaving with an empty wallet. Just go to a so-called “Tasca” and order an authentic Portuguese meal with a glass of wine. It doesn’t have to cost more than 5€! When you’ve become tired of walking up and down the hills of Lisbon, catch a train to Cascais, walk around in the small city and lay on one of many beaches in that area. It’s the perfect city getaway!

Stockholm, Sweden

Yes, Sweden does have a reputation of being one of the most expensive countries in the world and therefore, plenty of people skip it. Don’t be one of them! Stockholm is one of Europe’s most amazing capital cities and it’s especially charming during the summer. When the harsh winter months has passed, the Swedes try to spend all their time outside when they’re not working or studying. That’s when you’ll see Stockholm come to life, when the landscape turns green, and you can actually sit outside without freezing. It might be a bit more expensive than the rest of Europe, but there’s ways to travel there in a budget. Cook yourself, couchsurf, walk instead of taking transportation, and just try to be smart with your money. A lot of the sights in Stockholm are for free so take advantage of that.


You can’t make a list of the best European summer cities without including Paris, perhaps the capital city of Europe! Paris is a delight to visit no matter the season, but summer time is especially delightful. Try to come during the early summer months, or late, so you won’t have to walk around in the worst summer heat. Remember to pass by a few boulangeries and try some pastries in Paris – they’re the absolute tastiest in France and it’ll be hard for you to ever try other pastries after being in Paris.

Europe in the summer part 2

The best summer cities in Europe Part II

It’s time to cover other European cities that are especially pretty during the summer. If you’re traveling on a low budget and you’re interested in venturing out a bit of the “tourist trail”, you might be interested in this list. Take a look!

Kraków, Poland

Poland has long been on the list of one of the most budget friendly countries to travel to in Europe, and the country receives travelers from all over the world, every year. But Poland is not just famous for being cheap – it’s also one of the most historical, beautiful and fascinating countries to visit in Europe. Kraków is one of the best cities to visit in Poland thanks to its bohemian vibes, old architecture, and great food. You’ll have a blast visiting Kraków! Tickets are also usually cheap, depending on where you come from. Kraków is a well connected city and you can often find very affordable flights tickets to Kraków.

Cluj-Napoca, Romania

Probably the most underrated cities in Europe, Cluj-Napoca (also referred to as Cluj) lies in Transilvania, a region mostly known for Dracula. But Cluj is far from scary. It’s Romania’s treasure, with tons of bohemian cafés, music festivals, and student bars. In fact, it’s a big student city. But during summer, most students either go home or go abroad, so the city is a bit more calm during summer, making it ideal to visit. Romania is also known as one of the more budget friendly destinations in Europe and is even cheaper than Poland! So don’t miss out on this fantastic city when you’re on your Eurotrip.

Istanbul, Turkey

Forget about Antalya, it’s in Istanbul where the action happens! What makes Istanbul so interesting is that it’s so different from all other European cities, which makes sense since one part of Turkey lies in Asia. Istanbul is fun, exciting, different, and it’s quite cheap too! There are plenty of sights to see such as the mesmerizing Hagia Sofia and the Grand Bazaar. Don’t forget to taste the local food too, it’s one of the best in Europe!

Kiev, Ukraine

If you want good value for your money, Kiev is the place to go. It’s slowly becoming a more popular tourist destination in Europe, thanks to the cheap flights that goes there and the affordable prices in the country. The atmosphere in Kiev is cool, relaxed, fun, and welcoming. There’s also tons of street art to look at here in Kiev and public parks, for when you need to relax your feet and take a break from all the walking.
