Trips to take while you’re still single!

Ah yes, they say sharing is caring and some really big words when you’re about to get hitched. And even though I agree that some of the best sunsets are the ones that are shared, there’s nothing like a final round of freedom. Right before you are to get married. Go alone or take your best friend along, don’t forget to pay an ode to your last, glorious days of singledom and try these out – the 20 must trips, or things to do on a trip before you get married. 

 

Set a new example of gluttony as you dig into a fondue at Switzerland, become the coolest one on the block with a perfect selfie taken at Trolltunga or go as hippie as you can in India. Enjoy solitude; don’t share even if you do care!

 

1) Visit Trolltunga or the Devil’s Tongue, Norway, swing your legs over the edge and laugh away to glory

2) Have a cup of coffee at Drop Coffee Roasters, Stockholm. Don’t share.

If, by chance or luck or love, you are already married, stow this list away from your spouse; make a secret travel plan, be pretentious and laugh your way around the world. And if you love it, do not disclose my name to your spouse. Ever.

 

If you know of something equally fabulous and wish to see it here, write down a comment below.

 

Till then, happy travelling.
