    i think holidays are meant to be alone, less hassle with other members of family...friends are less hassle but still, a holiday by yourself is ideal as you get to relax more, which is the whole point

    Hi all,

    Basically I recently split with my long term partner and all our friends were mutual (but their friends first so not really mine anymore).. I don't have any family either.

    I'd like to get away in the sun for a week or so, is it sad to go alone? What type of holiday would be the best for someone alone?

    Thanks all

    Not in the slightest. People travel alone all the time for various reasons. Travelling alone is a great way to really connect with yourself on a deeper level, and discover new things.

    Only place that's weird to go alone is nightclubs because you actually go to socialize.

    I go to the cinema alone a lot if I wanna see a film, if somebody wants to to point their finger and laugh then they can shove their finger up their ar*e and jump off a cliff since they're the ones having to rely on other people to enjoy something that doesn't require other people.

    No way! It's going to be great for your head
    To helpful you focus on the opportunity and freedom available to you in solo travel, for reading I suggest travel writers/writers on travel, including: Alain de Botton on travel, Joan Didion Slouching towards Bethlehem, Pico Iyer, and any novels/writers from the country to which you are traveling.

    If you're open to meditation, I suggest the headspace app. If you're open to yoga, I suggest the Yoga Studio app.

    Take care of yourself

    Not at all! It sounds like a good time to get away and just spend some time with yourself, I'm hoping to go to Croatia backpacking soon and I will probably do that alone... it means you always get to do what/eat where you want
    Sounds awesome!

    I visited Canada and the US on my own last year, and more recently Belgium and Luxembourg.

    Hmm, yes. If I saw someone on holiday on their own I would think that you were a sad and pathetic human being, and defiantly avoid you. Don't go. (unless you're 50+) - in which case you should remove yourself from the student room.

    I have been on loads of motorcycle road trips on my own. Being on my own means I can do my own thing in my own time.
