It’s Independence month here at Travaasa, so embrace your individuality and embark on a solo adventure! There is nothing quite like traveling alone to really hone in on the glory and greatness of being Numero Uno.

While on your solo sabbatical, step out of your comfort zone and learn something new, do something daring or just spend some QT inside your own mind.  Here are some great Travaasa activities for traveling alone.

Learn something new.

The culturally rich locations of Travaasa properties make your solo journey the perfect time to learn something new. Travaasa offers a variety of cooking classes and demonstrations to take your culinary skills to new levels. In Hana, take a juicing class and learn best practices for blending fresh juices, soups, dips, spreads, salads and desserts.

Cut the fat without losing the flavor at group cooking classes at Travaasa Austin. Travaasa’s professional culinary team guides guests through each step of creating delicious daily recipes and provide tips on healthy culinary techniques—including cocktails and entertaining your guests.

Get out there.

Step out of your comfort zone and test your mental capacity at Travaasa Austin with the Prickly Pear Challenge Course.  Created in partnership with Outward Bound Professional, this obstacle course incorporates vertical climbing elements and ends with a horizontal zip line flight high over the tree tops.

Rather stay on the ground? Try your luck at treasure hunting with a geocaching adventure. This game of high-tech hide and seek will test your navigational skills as you search for the hidden “cashes.” It’s also a great way to explore the unique beauty of the Travaasa Austin property.

Quiet your mind.

Both Travaasa Austin and Travaasa Hana provide guests with experiences that are immersed in serene, natural settings.  Connect with your breath and the beauty around you along the Texas Hill Country in Austin or seaside in Hana. In Hana, discover guided mediation to escape your busy mind and find a deeper sense of awareness and serenity.  Similarly, the Hā Breath Sessions class in Austin focuses on restorative breathing sequences to release stress and anxiety.
