Today is a day that will frighten some folks. It’s Plan a Solo Vacation Day.
As luck would have it, I am in the midst of planning a solo vacation right now. Yes, I am still very happily married. Yes, he is perfectly fine with this. Yes, we will go on vacation together again. Simply put, I want to go back to Duluth MN and he doesn’t. So, I’m going my myself.
I originally went on vacation alone when I was “in between husbands” as part of my “I can do anything without a man” phase. (That’s another story for another post). I was pleasantly surprised by how enjoyable – and peaceful- it was. i could go whatever I want whenever I want. I could eat whatever I wanted. I could nap whenever I wanted. It was pretty awesome.
I highly encourage everyone, regardless of your relationship status, to travel alone at least once. If you are a little frightened by the idea, start small- a weekend trip somewhere you’ve enjoyed before. You might just surprise yourself!
