- Always travel with headphones, a book and maybe even a sleep mask – If you are too nervous to talk to people then this is one of the easiest ways to avoid conversation without appearing to be really rude.
- Try a retreat – There are plenty of different options for retreats available, whether it’s writing, spa, yoga, or something else. Retreats tend to offer a calm and quiet space in pristine natural settings. You will probably end up surrounded by like minded people who like to keep to themselves.
- Order room service – This can be a nice break if you have not got the social energy for a restaurant. Treat yourself to a nice and easy meal in the comfort of your hotel room.
- Keep a travel journal – Many people find journaling to be quite therapeutic and travelling can be quite emotional. Documenting your feelings during your travels can be very useful.
- Push your comfort zone – I personally feel that travelling is one of the best times to face your fears because you’re surrounded by people that don’t already have an impression of you.
- Take a tour – This is a nice calm way to take in your destination’s culture without it being really overwhelming.
- Schedule some down time – Don’t tire and overwhelm yourself by trying to fit too many activities into your schedule. Make sure you let yourself have some time to just relax.
- Wake up early – While staying in a big resort if you wake up early you can wander around the grounds without seeing many people, and even when you do there seems to be a mutual understanding that you want some quiet time. Early in the morning will also let you get some amazing photos with great lighting as the sun rises.
- Bring your hobbies with you – If you don’t plan on socialising there are still a lot of activities to enjoy on holiday. Bring a yoga mat for on the beach in the morning, bring a sketch pad and draw your views or just enjoy some photography.
- Small population – Another option is that you could always go on a trip somewhere where there are not a lot of people around. One of these options is a trip to certain parts of the Scottish Highlands.
