You Need A Break

A divorce takes a long time and it’s an incredibly stressful process. Even if you work with the best family law solicitors in the business, there will always be disputes that take time to resolve. After all of that emotional stress, you will be left feeling drained. The last thing you want to do is go back to work and deal with the normal stresses of daily life on top of that. You need a break, so why not jet off somewhere for a few weeks and get some much needed rest?

You Can Travel Solo

A lot of people have never travelled on their own before. They always went with their family or friends and they haven’t experienced what it’s like to explore a brand new country on their own. But now you have the opportunity to do just that because you don’t have to worry about your spouse anymore. After coming out of a divorce, you may feel like you can’t do things on your own and your self-esteem suffers a lot. But travelling solo shows you that you can tackle new challenges without your spouse, so it gives you a huge confidence boost. However, make sure that you follow these safety tips whenever travelling alone.

You Can Go Where You Want

Going away with your family is amazing and you will create a lot of cherished memories together. But there are always places that you can’t go to because you have to worry about what the kids want to do or where your spouse wants to go. A lot of people feel that they missed their chance to go to these places, but now that you’re travelling alone, it’s time to check out your bucket list and head to those places that you always dreamed of visiting.

You Can Meet New People

Divorce can be quite isolating and it’s always a tricky situation if you and your spouse shared a lot of friends. Hopefully, most people won’t take sides but it’s inevitable that there will be friends you don’t see as much. Travelling is a brilliant way to meet new people and make your own friends that don’t know you as one half of a couple. You might not meet your new best friend but it does force you to get outside of your comfort zone and meet new people again, which can be tough when you haven’t done it for a long time.

Getting your life back on track after a divorce is so hard, but if you take a trip, it will give you a new lease on life and when you return, you will be ready to face anything.

I know what it's like to go from being a crazy backpacker without a care in the world, via being a vaguely sensible parent to being an adventurer once more. In other words, evolving into a Grown-up Traveller.

Like everyone else, I love to travel, have visited a lot of countries and all that but my big thing is Africa.

I also own and run The Grown-up Travel Company as a travel designer creating personalised African itineraries for experienced adventurers
