Traveling alone can be an enlightening experience: it encourages you to engage more with your surroundings and gives you more freedom to dive into the culture of the place you’re visiting. You also have greater control over your itinerary and have the chance to make lasting connections with locals and fellow travelers.
When you return home, you may find that your solo adventure has taught you a lot about yourself as well as the places you visited. A solo trip can absolutely make for an incredible, unforgettable experience. A great way to go on a solo adventure is to combine volunteering with travel. At Volunteer Forever, we believe this is one of the best ways to truly immerse yourself in a place – by lending a hand to community-based initiatives, you can learn about local solutions to local issues, meet amazing people working toward a common goal, and explore awesome destinations in-depth.
So, let’s take a look at a few programs that offer impactful excursions for those traveling alone!
