Traveling solo. Those words don’t conjure up images of fun and excitement normally, but in reality traveling by yourself can be an incredibly rewarding experience.
Island Windjammers, the cruise line that is based out of Grenada and runs the 101 foot Diamant up and down the Grenadine Islands is offering solo trips for its passengers. Special cruise dates that fill the cabins with adventurous island loving solo travelers.
I was a solo traveler with Island Windjammers last November and came away from the experience with a new found love of exploration and a lot of new friends. Their ship, the Diamant, being a relatively small sailing vessel puts you in close quarters with your fellow passengers and crew to where you can’t help but becoming friends. You’re sharing an amazing sailing experience with these people and the connection you form with them will be as strong as the anchor chain.
Another interesting thing I realized is that I found myself doing was really exploring the islands. When normally if with family or friends I would crack open a cold Carib and lime away on the beach all day, traveling solo I found myself hiking up hill t0ps, climbing boulders and walking the sidewalks of charming Caribbean towns wondering what it would be like to live there. Don’t get me wrong, there was plenty of beach time, but also a lot of “you” time.
