You may have noticed that I have recently booked a solo Disney trip and went to watch Wicked in London on my own. It feels quite liberating to be content in my own company. Of course, I also enjoy spending time with others but being recently single, I have accepted that I will be spending a lot more time on my own.
Having gone to London on numerous occasions growing up, the thought of travelling to and from, as well as navigating London, didn’t concern me. I was a little bit nervous about eating alone as I thought people would think I was really strange but I don’t think anyone really noticed. In fact, think it’s quite common for people to eat alone in London.
I was also nervous about going to the theatre on my own but as you spend the majority of your time watching the performance, I barely noticed a difference. In the interval, I just went on my phone and the time went quickly.
The best thing about being on your own is that you can do everything that you want. I got up early as I knew I wanted to go shopping and spent as much or as little time shopping as I wanted to. I stopped for lunch when I wanted to and went back shopping when I wanted. I also went back home when I wanted.
I’ve since booked another solo theatre trip to see Les Miserables in November and I can’t wait. I’d also like to try going to the cinema on my own which does feel a little bit daunting. I think that would be the next step. I’m sure it will be nothing to worry about, though. I desperately want to see Thor: Ragnarok when it comes out (huge Marvel fan) so that will probably be my first solo cinema trip.
Do you enjoy spending time alone?
Have you ever been on a solo trip?
