“Making the unknown a little more friendly”. By now these words should sound familiar. And while they encapsulate Live2Leave‘s mission, they couldn’t ring more true when applied to solo travel. Yes, it does take courage to step on the path of discovery alone. But it can be so gratifying as well. So to make that process a little less daunting for our mighty turtles, we’ve selected a few trips that you can safely take on your own. Because all you really need in the end is a great recommendation you can trust and an open mind.
So go ahead turtles, for the World can truly be yours if you want it to be!
“Hiking from Kalaw to Inle Lake was one of the highlights of my trip to Myanmar”
Feeding giants at Green Hill Valley Elephant Camp
“One of the most amazing experiences of my life! Green Hill Valley takes care of retired elephants (that worked carrying timber logs) or orphaned elephants. You get to feed, bathe and take care of them for one day, it’s incredible! It seems pricey (USD 100 lunch included)-but it’s actually worth more.”
Discovering the countryside at Agematsu - Nagano Prefecture
“Agematsu guest house in Iida. Incredible 300 year old farmhouse turned into a guest house. The host Tae speaks perfect french and is an incredible cook, the region is absolutely beautiful. A great way to get to know the Japanese countryside. You can find her on Airbnb!”
Observing old traditions at Hyoe Koyokaku - Kobe
“Staying in a Ryokan is definitely a must. Highlights: sleeping on a tatami, hanging out in a robe all day, taking hot baths in the Onsen while looking out at the mountains. Above a traditional enkai party “
“Skiing in Bariloche is an experience like no other. The views are simply stunning and the slopes totally worth your time! Go deeper in the Andes for amazing off-piste itineraries. Beware of the rental equipment though, not exactly state of the art.”
Up in the air at the Iguazu National Park - Iguazu region
“When in Iguazu, go to the Brazilian side and sign up for a helicopter tour of the falls with Helisul.
~100$/pers for a 15min flight, totally worth it. They take 5pers par flight so try and sit front or by a window to get the best views!”
