I'm 25 and I've never been abroad without my parents, save for a school trip to France when I was 14 and a French Exchange the same year, neither of which I would count.

How the f do you guys afford to go away on holidays at such a young age? Lol.

Well I went on study abroad by myself to Canada when I was 19. My bf took me to New York while I was there too.

For an actual holiday, 20, when I went to stay with a friend in Cornwall. :awesome:

i was 17 when i went away with my friends for a week to ibiza without any adult supervision, however when i was 13 i got the train from paris to sofia (to visit relatives) by myself. it took 3 days because there was a problem in munich and i don't think my parents appreciate even now how scary it was.

I've never gone on a proper holiday with friends (I'm 20). I used to live in Germany though during my gap year, so does this count? And my bf is Greek and I went to Greece for nearly 2 weeks (I was 19 then), so this probably comes the closest...

Haha through choice. I did Camp America then travelled after. Was one of the best things I've done. That and Alaska (also without friends/family)

I want to go on holiday with my friends this summer to a friend's villa in Spain. Was just wondering how old everyone was when they first went away without parental supervision?

I'll be 18, btw.
same and same, were going near Malaga around 16th July

I'm 20 in July and haven't left Scotland since 2007 (never been abroad) - can't afford it to be honest!... Never gone away for an overnight with anyone that wasn't school, family, at a friend's house, or with girlguiding - again because we simply don't have the money! Hasn't done me any harm though I do feel a bit childish looking at this thread!

With friends? Never.

Without parental supervision? I went to France with school when I was 13....obviously still very supervised though.

Without any supervision at all? My honeymoon, when I was 21.

Man don't I lead a wild life.

Finally, someone in the same boat as me! We're thinking of going then too, cannot wait for this summer. A-levels are evil.

I'll be 17 when I go away with my friends this summer. But a few of them will be 18. (I'm one of those unfortunate people with a late birthday)
