Last week I took myself on my very first solo trip!! I decided last fall that I wanted to go see The Lion King when it came to Memphis and I couldn’t find anyone who was able to go with me and I decided I wouldn’t miss it just because no one was able to go with me so I decided to go alone.
The timing was perfect and right after my 32nd birthday so it was a sort of single lady/first solo/birthday trip. Of course bad weather was threatening all week but I am so glad that it was clear that day and I got to go!
Memphis is about two hours from central Arkansas and was the perfect drive to listen to my latest audiobook and just think. The Lion King was at the Orpheum in Memphis which is just gorgeous!!
The Lion King is an amazing musical and I highly encourage you to go see it if you get the chance. I was blown away by all of the animals and choreography and caught myself
crying tearing up a few times. I had a front row seat and it was honestly the experience of a lifetime.
After The Lion King I went to my hotel to check in. I treated myself right and stayed at The Westin in Memphis. Something happened to my reservation and I got upgraded to a junior suite!! Woohoo!!
After I got checked in I decided to walk to the Hard Rock Cafe and grab a bite to eat. It was weird to dine alone in such a fun place but I had a great time!! I have eaten lunch alone a ton but never dinner…luckily Memphis is great for people watching!
I started with a Southern Rock to drink and had the Twisted Mac and Cheese for my entree.
I was stuffed so I took the Hot Fudge Brownie Sundae back to my room to eat in my HeavenlyBed. Y’all. That bed. I must have it!! I have never slept better!! I went to bed at 830 pm and woke up at 830 am and I’m not even sure I moved at all. It’s that good.
Overall I really enjoyed my very first solo trip and I hope it’s the first of many.
Have you taken a solo trip before??
