Where to go for a "divorce honeymoon"?

Jump to last reply

I'd like to take a "divorce honeymoon" (kind of the opposite of a honeymoon - but alone). I don't know where to go. Do I return to one of the places I used to enjoy with my husband: charter sailing in BVI; snorkeling in St. Thomas or St. Martin; hiking in Sedona or the Grand Canyon? Or find a whole new adventure?

I like outdoors - not sure if I prefer sun/sand/snorkel or hiking/mountains more. I guess I could go either way. The key is, I'll be alone. So I want something safe enough to do on my own, or where there are groups that I could get in with. I've always wanted to do a Grand Canyon rim-to-rim hike, but I don't know if that's good/safe to do alone.

I could maybe do a "healthy retreat" - like a yoga retreat or something. Or I could take some kind of travel workshop - like for photography.

I have't really done much travel outside the US, except for the Caribbean. I don't know other languages, so it may be difficult to tackle another country (unless it's English speaking) - unless I take that on as part of my adventure. But I do think there is a lot to see in North America. I live in Florida, have lived in Chicago, Delaware, and have spent time in or vacationed in New Orleans, NYC, Colorado, AZ, Seattle.

I'd like to go for 2 weeks, and spend up to $2500. I could go anytime.

Any suggestions?
