The Australia’s third-largest island, Kangaroo Island, is a spectacle of its kind. Not only is the island home to a wide range of magnificent native animals, but it hosts divine geographical features such as arcs, sand dunes, bushland, and cliffs.  Let’s change gears from wildlife and environment to food and wine. The unpolluted environment of the Kangaroo Island introduces visitors to the original source of the most wondrous and unexpected food and wine varieties in the world. The cuisines are so great that you can’t get it enough of it. Shifting to accommodation, Kangaroo Island accommodation options allow guests to experience indulgence of real luxury. The delightful coastal view in Kangaroo Island accommodation facilities, bring calmness and authenticity to your holiday experience.

Kangaroo Island receives group visitors and solo visitors in equal measure. If you want to travel all alone and spend “me time”, make new friends, have a more meaningful vacation and stay within a budget, Kangaroo Island is the place to be. While solo travel has great benefits, it has its share of disadvantages. Loneliness, in particular, can creep on you and wear you down sometimes to tears. So, how do you minimize loneliness during your solo visit to the island?

Don’t spend too much time alone

Avoid seclusion if you want to kick off loneliness. Hang out in popular places where your fellow travelers are exploiting. Visit restaurant with communal tables and strike up a conversation with the person sited next to you. Also, avoid staying indoors during daytime – you’ll wallow in your loneliness the more. Get out and explore the splendor of the island to the fullest. Surprisingly you’ll take note of tiny sights that you would have easily skipped if traveling in a group.

The place you stay matters

A resort located miles away from town isn’t the best choice for your solo visit. You’ll get lonelier and even develop chronic homesickness. Be flexible when deciding on the best Kangaroo Island accommodation facility for you. Although you won’t have much privacy, a dorm-style hostel room is a great choice. You get the opportunity to mix and chat with other travelers sharing your hostel room which helps to keep loneliness at bay. Check out Sea Dragon Lodge

Be in touch with yourself

The thoughts of the family, friends, and colleagues you left at home will notoriously creep into your mind and get you wishing you had their company. To avoid this feeling, fill your mind with yourself. Spend time thinking and reflecting about your life. Grab a pen and paper and start writing it down. Make a list of your life’s goals and how to want to achieve them. You could also blog about your trip experiences and highlights. Writing and reflecting are powerful tools for overcoming the negative feelings of loneliness.

Keep in touch with the guys at home

Talking to a family member of a friend is enough to get you through the loneliness. The important thing is to talk to someone who will not only sympathize with you but give you some motivation to keep you going. So, when the feeling of loneliness sets in, grab your phone and call home or walk into a cyber café and Skype with a friend. For more details please visit this site
