    I am also looking to travel alone this summer.

    However, I do hope to make some new friends, so I hope I won't always be alone

    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

    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.
    Regards, Shawdowd.
    You're a charming human being aren't you?

    Not at all. My brother swears by travelling alone because it means you can do the things you want to do, and can change your plans last minute without upsetting anyone. If you're worried that you might get lonely, you could stay at hostels, or get tickets for one of those hop on hop off bus tours where you can get to know your other travellers (and change your plans to match theirs without much fuss if you want to). It's actually easier to make friends on holiday if you're not with people you already know.

    A great idea to go alone, and you can also meet loads of people if you know what to look for, you could try to couchsurf or at least go to some couchsurfing or language exchange events organized in the cities that you visit - there are loads of suche events where I live. You just go there and there are dozens of people who will be glad to have a pleasant conversation with you and have fun.

    Not the kind of holiday you,will be thinking about but have you considered cruising . A lot of people go cruising on there own and it is really easy to make frii ends while cruising as they have lone traveller act it's . You will also get to see sights but it is quite expensive

    I would recommend that before you go anywhere, you make a list of museums and places you want to go. That'll help you stay as busy (or not) as you want to be! I'm from NY so feel free to hit me up for suggestions.

    Thank you, I cruise too much but never on my own.
    Some cruise ships like princess have anytime dining in where you are basically put on a table with strangers unless you request to be with a group or a couple. The people on the table will change everyday so it's a good way of meeting new people!

    If you like the idea of a solo activity holiday check these guys out.

    It was a bit wild when I went on one so I wouldn't recommend it if you want to quietly relax somewhere.

    No. I was hesitant about doing so for a long time, but at the beginning of last month I went to Helsinki for five days on my lonesome. It was nice. I did my own thing on my own schedule. It was nice to get away.
    There is an argument for travelling on your own. Do it. You may enjoy it.
