After all your planning, the excitement of your journey and finally being on your adventure, we can sometimes be a little overwhelmed. Especially if we are taking in a new culture.

Take a moment to put your phone down from taking photos, breathe in your surroundings and soak in the place where you are.

I know from my first previous solo travels, especially in the first few days of arriving somewhere, that I have been so overwhelmed with my surroundings I don’t think I really appreciated where I was and seemed like such a blur.

I now know to slow down a bit, and really ENJOY this experience I have been planning for so long.

Lacking confidence or being a bit nervous to travel alone can hold many people back from having amazing experiences, whether that’s at home or abroad.

Building confidence to travel solo comes in little steps.
Firstly, BELIEVE IN YOURSELF! You are capable of doing this and you’ll be amazed just how much you change and grow because of an experience like traveling solo.

Start at home, do short day trips, join local excursions, have lunch or a coffee solo, or a weekend away tour or retreat.

Join solo travel groups on FB or as such. These can be wonderful communities to get advice and feedback and maybe meet up with other like-minded souls.

Get prepared. The more prepared you are the more confident you will be in your decision making and with what you are planning. Transport connections, currency conversion, local scams, basic phrases and rough cost of items are all great knowledge to have in your backpack to help you navigate a safe trip.

Seek help, don’t be afraid to ask questions! Ask as many as you can and if you are not sure about something, double-check. Use a travel agent if you feel more comfortable having someone help you with all those little details like flight schedules and entry requirements.

And remember, just because you are travelling SOLO doesn’t mean you are ALONE! There are many people just like you and you’ll more than likely find a travel buddy ( if you want one) on your adventures.

It can be just as exciting as your adventure.
Checking out places you want to go to, and things you’d love to experience.

But it also gives you an opportunity to get familiar with where you are going. Things like cultural customs, tips on costs of items you’ll likely purchase, transport options and even basic local language phrases.
All these things will give you a more stress-free adventure.

You don’t have to plan everything down to the last minute, always allow for a bit of flexibility, as things can and quite often do not always go to plan. But that’s OK.
If you have done your basic research you should be more than capable of going with the flow and being ready for changes.

Some of my top 3 tips:
>Always book at least your first night where ever you are going-being tired once you’re off the plane, the last thing you want to worry about is where you are staying.
>Organise your transfer, either get this via your accommodation or book a place that has good public transport connections and how to connect with this transport from the airport.
>Have a small amount of small change in local currency on you when you arrive, or buy something at the airport to get some change. In some places you’ll need small change for toilets and it helps with tips too.
Happy Planning!

Food is a great way to bring people together.
On retreat, we get to enjoy some lush local produce, from @fallsretreat.
Like our dinner out with their “Made from Scratch” menu and a wonderful produce box for our group dinner at our cabin to enjoy together on the Saturday night.

Sharing the wonderful food from Brad, Emma and the team at Falls Retreat is a definite highlight of my Escape Weekend Retreats, and a wonderful way to connect with each other.

I love showcasing good, natural produce from my local area and New Zealand, and did I mention that includes dessert!

On the escape weekend retreats, this is one activity that is a highlight for all those that attend.
Not only do they have a few laughs but they come away with some pretty cool pieces of pottery to be proud of.

Did you know that creating art boosts self-esteem and provides a sense of accomplishment in adults.

It produces dopamine, which makes people feel good, increases drive, and improves concentration. When you finish a creative project, you feel a boost of dopamine that gives you a sense of accomplishment.

I love it when Spirit joins us for our yoga session at @the.nest.waihi.beach.

It’s proven pets can reduce anxiety. So any retreat guests that have any nerves about trying yoga for the first time soon find these are elevated when Spirit comes and cruises around saying hello to everyone.

Kas, the creator of The Nest does a wonderful job, relaxing us into a gentle morning session, and I have to admit “corpse pose” at the end is one of my favourite poses!

Travel and the experiences it brings can be so much more than just a journey to a destination.
It can be a journey to your soul, to reset, and to have the room to explore your own identity.

I have found this true of myself. I’m a different person when I travel. Well maybe not different but a version of myself I love.
I go with the flow, I’m more relaxed and definitely live more for the moment.

I have also noticed this transformation in my retreat guests.
I see them arriving from stressful homes and business lives feeling worn down, and see them leave with a new sense of what to prioritise in their lives and a child-like feeling of joy.
This is something we often are missing in our hectic lives. Remembering play, laughter, JOY, and connection.
