Taking a break – singles vacation

Between working long hours, finding the time to meet up with friends and somehow making the effort to look after yourself, it’s pretty easy to see how finding new social opportunities can slip off your radar.

Singles holidays can range from a few days away to an overseas voyage with all the trimmings. If you want to see more of the world, a quick browse of the internet will show you there are specialist tour companies to take you there, including anywhere from the Grand Canyon to Glacier National Park to Niagara Falls. Or take the leap, expand your horizons and venture overseas – there are singles tours available for just about anywhere you can think of - Europe, Asia, Africa – it's up to you.

Of course, there are no guarantees that you'll meet single woman of your dreams, but there is a guarantee that you'll meet other singles, most likely with the same interests as you.

The key to enjoying a singles vacation is not to pin all your hopes of meeting Mr. or Ms right. Instead, go with a fun-seeking attitude where you're willing to give any activity a go. Keep your romantic expectations realistic – and you may come home pleasantly surprised!

Travelling with a single friend can be a great buffer…but going it alone means you'll be more likely to take the plunge and get out there and socialize. So think carefully before you invite a buddy.

"Traveling when single can be an exciting and incredibly liberating experience," says the specialist company Meet Market Adventures. "Single people possess a level of freedom and independence unknown to couples, allowing them to enjoy their vacation to the fullest." And yet, there are some singles who look around and see nothing but a world full of couples, and for this group of sheltered singles, a singles vacation is an ideal option.

One thing to keep in mind when booking a singles holiday is where the other travelers are originating from. Many singles vacations will cater for people in your area, but be aware that other holidays will draw people from all across the world…You may meet someone special, but there's a possibility they could live on the other side of the world.

Singles tours feature the usual fun activities for travelers like sightseeing, hiking and entertainment, and if you're up for a totally new experience, a singles adventure holiday could hit the spot.

Be it trekking in Asia or discovering the sights in and around New York, there's a plethora of singles vacations to choose from. Ask yourself what you want from a holiday, do your research and bon voyage.
