6 Life-Changing Trips To Take After A Breakup

By Parker Diakite


Getting over a breakup can be hard.  After a big loss or change,  traveling can change your perspective and allows you time to reflect to help your mind get back on track.

Here are 6 life-changing trips to take after a breakup and why.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Rio de Janeiro is a vibrant city that offers the best of both worlds:  a chance to relax and reflect on the beach, and the chance to meet new people as Rio de Janeiro has some of the best parties.

Even if you’re not in the mood to party,  one thing that’s great about Rio is that it’s a great place to mingle with other travelers if you decide to go alone.  Meeting new people can help you gain some perspective on your next chapter after a breakup.

San Francisco, California

San Francisco draws millions of visitors each year for good reason. The city’s scenery is breathtaking.

Visiting San Francisco will make allow you to realize that you don’t have to take an international trip to experience such beauty. That in itself is symbolic after a breakup and serves as a reminder that you don’t have to dig too deep to find happiness because everything you need for optimal joy comes from within.

Another reason why San Franciso makes the list is that more than 40% of the city’s population is single, which means that if you decide to travel alone, you will fit right in.

Your time in San Francisco can be spent roaming the streets,  sightseeing on a tour bus, or a day-trip to Napa Valley.

Known as this happy Caribbean Island,  Aruba is great for self-care with the variety of spa resorts available. 

Relax and reflect at Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino, a Balinese-inspired spa said to be the largest spa on the island.


Home to the spiritual Incan ruins of Machu Picchu, the Sacred Valley, and the Amazon rainforest, Peru is the perfect place to reflect, recharge, and focus on what’s next.

If you want some adventure, Peru has a ton of hiking trails that will get your heart pumping, while you get up close and personal with the country’s natural wonders.

The Inca Trail is Peru’s most popular route, but feel free to trek the Lost City of Choquequirao or the Huayhuash Circuit.

London, United Kingdom

London is the kind of city with so much going on, those negative thoughts will be drowned out.

What’s also great about London is that you can choose to explore it alone or with someone else. In addition, your chances of meeting other travelers are pretty high as London is a top destination for solo travelers.
