Solo Travel Reviews

I write balanced reviews of hotels I recommend staying at if you are alone, restaurants suitable for solo dining and activities I have enjoyed by myself.

Solo Travel Destinations

Take a look at some of the exciting things you can do in the countries I have visited so far…


Amsterdam is an exciting and diverse city to visit as a solo traveller.  Probably best known for its windmills, tulips, cheese, canals, bridges and the Red Light District.

Having been to Antigua a number of times, I know the Island well.  I have reviewed several hotels here which are great for a solo holiday.

I lived in Australia for 18 months and visit regularly.  It is a great country for travelling solo and I hope some of my reviews inspire you to go to the places I have been to and enjoyed.

An incredibly beautiful Italian city, now the capital of the Tuscan region.  Popular with those interested in art, Renaissance, culture, architecture and Italian food.  Wonderful place to visit as a solo traveller.

I currently live close to London so it makes sense to inform you of some great places to go and activities to get involved in by yourself.

Madrid is a clean, safe city for solo travel. It has a relaxed ambience in spite of being Spain’s capital. It is a wonderful place to come to enjoy exquisite food, high end shopping, museums, architecture and flamenco shows.

A European Cruise – Greece, Montenegro, Croatia

Book a solo cabin on TUI’s Marella Celebration Cruise and visit 6 destinations. You will have an opportunity to get involved in various activities onboard the ship, book guided tours when you are in port or explore by yourself. TUI also arrange lunch and pre-dinner drinks for solo travellers should you wish to meet others who are on their own.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my solo travels. It has been a learning curve and naturally, at times, there have been hiccups along the way! Following this, I have dedicated a page of my website to solo travel tips which will give solo travellers invaluable information and help to avoid some of the mistakes I have made.
