Earlier this year, I was #blessed with a trip to Mexico. Secrets Akumal Riviera Maya was a dream, and while I was going to be spending some of my time with the other amazing bloggers on the trip, I knew I’d be tackling some of it as a solo traveler. And actually, for one of the first times in my adult life, I was really excited about that. But as this trip also happened to be the first time I was staying at an all-inclusive, I wanted to share some things I learned that could help you, should the travel bug hit you for a solo vacay.
Going to, well, pretty much anything, alone used to give me major anxiety. In a time when I really cared what people thought of me, leaving myself vulnerable and solo felt pretty unachievable. But after coming to the very important realizations that a) I don’t care nearly as much as I used to about what other humans think of me, and b) other humans have too much of their own shit going on to spend much of their time thinking about me, a whole new world of comfort opened up.
There’s quite a slew of activities one can tackle solo, leading all the way up to taking your first solo vacation. But today, I’m here to share the details of a pretty simple solo date idea you can conquer right here in Philly (and for way less than you may be thinking!).
