Traveling alone is one of the most liberating and enriching experiences a person can have. Solo travel is definitely worth it. Keep reading if you want to know what 10 fun things to do on your own on vacation.
1. Get lost in a new city
Throw the card away, put away your phone and wander. Always be aware of your environment when you are alone. Often the best parts of a city are not in your travel guide.

2. Reading a book in a cafe
There is nothing better than a new book, a freshly brewed cup of coffee and a free afternoon to enjoy both.
3. Try yoga
The perfect antidote for a long flight or a cramped bus trip is a yoga class to stretch your stiff limbs. Find a local yoga class to relax.
4. Visit a museum
Take an audio guide and explore a museum in a relaxed way. Learn something new about the country you're visiting in your own time.
5. Go on a group excursion
Group excursions can make some trips cheaper, and it is also an excellent way to meet fellow travelers.
6. Keep a diary
Document your trip in a notebook. It is a satisfying exercise and can serve as a nice reminder of your journey for the coming years.
7. Write postcards
Keep in touch with family and friends the old-fashioned way by sending postcards from your trip.
8. Go hiking
Walking is an ideal way to get some fresh air and movement while seeing a new part of the destination that you are visiting. Pick up a hiking guide at a local inn or at a tourist information center.
9. Really relax
You have no one counting on you, so make relaxation a priority and really let it sink in.
Traveling alone is an ideal moment to give something back to the country you visit. Consider volunteering for a day or week at a local charity or organization. You meet the locals and immerse yourself in the culture.
