    Has anyone tried going on holiday by themselves? I'm asking the under 18s here because above that age a solo holiday isn't unusual!
    Whos done it, did you enjoy it, where did you go and what did you do?

    well we're going on holiday as a family as per usual, but well i want to go to New Zealand and my parents aren't that interested in that as they've been many times, so I was thinking of going it alone?

    No one has tried?

    I've been to Canada alone.

    It was really good actually,I could do what I wanted when I wanted and didn't have anyone nagging me to tidy up my hotel room(my travel companions always complain about the mess I make!) and it meant I had a good time!

    I went to Toronto and went shopping mostly,had a look at a few tourist things I hadn't seen before(I had visited before)...

    I'm 18...I went in March on this trip.

    I'd recommend it.I'd love to get away to a hot place alone but alas,I'm going with my family this year!

    I wasn't really scared as I have travelled alone a lot.I went for 5 nights.I didn't really get bored...I spent pretty much 8-10 hours a day out and by the time I'd ordered my room service dinner and washed my hair it was time for bed etc.

    I only got scared at immigration when they accused me of smuggling drugs and searched my suitcases and on the plane home when the turbulence was really bad!Apart from that I was fine.

    I've never travelled alone but I imagine travelling alone is as dangerous as travelling with other people. As long as you're aware of your surroundings and etc. you should be fine.

    If you're going to NZ you'll meet loads of travellers who'll have started out on their own too. I'm planning to do a RTW tour alone starting in Nov...obviously you meet people! How long are you going for?

    That's such a long way! I'd suggest getting together with friends or finding a group to go with. Otherwise it'd get so lonely.

    How old are you?

    Also my parents would never ever let me go that far on my own.

    17. I've only just thought about it today, and I've never been travelling on my own so thats why i came here to ask.
    Maybe i could see if any of my mates are interested? although most of them have already planned their summer

    I went on my own, but it was a challenge type thingamy run by an organisation which is kinda different. Did have to fly on my own though, not as bad as everyone makes out! I don't see why you shouldn't, loads of ppl go on gap years alone!

    Apart from numerous exchanges/living with another family, I spent a week in February on my own in Berlin? Basically walking around, looking at a few galleries, Reichstag yada yada. I basically went there to practise my German, and it's not as bad as you might think... going solo. For a start, you'll much more willing to be talkative to other people (unless you want to be lonely, I'd advise hostelling), and there's mroe time to do things you want to do.

    I wouldn't go to the cinema or a restaurant alone let alone on holiday. I've been on a plane alone a million times and its great do what you want in the airport and no parents or family nagging, but a hol i think would be very lonely and quite honestly boring, and maybe even scary
