Finding Connection: A Guide to Solo Adventures

June 3, 2024

In today’s fast-paced, digital world, we are always connected, but many are feeling lonelier than ever before. This phenomenon is called the loneliness epidemic and it’s so prevalent, even the NY Times wrote about it. 

The good news is, you aren’t alone in this feeling and you don’t have to feel this way forever. And to help you get out of this rut and feel more connected, we put together a guide for solo adventures you can do to step out of your comfort zone, meet new people, and have fun along the way.

Everything here and more can be arranged by us, and you can send us your request through the LIV appour web portal, or by emailing or calling us directly.
