Take a scroll through Instagram these days searching for #wanderlust and you’ll see more than your fair share of beautiful women traveling the world with nothing but gusto, backpacks and the ideal filter for a sunset. Though your idea of solo travel might be limited to mid-week trips for client meetings, there’s an upward trend of more and more guys taking time off to vacation by themselves.

And hey, why not? While a trip with your buddies means plenty of boozing, playing the slots, and beach time, the beauty of a trip for one is that you can do whatever you want, whenever you want. Also, if you’re looking to meet a lady while traveling, either with the intent of a relationship or a fun one night stand, you’ll have a better chance when you’re not surrounded by a bunch of drunk men (that, yeah, you happen to call your best friends).
