Solo traveller

I've done seasonal fruit picking in Hungary, many years ago.
I met loads of people, from different countries, who I kept in touch with for years.
I would recommend seasonal work abroad, to any younger person.
It's a great experience, and a good way, to meet people, and see a different country, and learn a new language.
 
I scuba dive and it’s brilliant to go solo. Been away loads, mainly on liveaboards (boat). No single supplement and people to talk to if you want it, or you can sit in a corner and read a book.
Also went solo to Indonesia and Kenya/Tanzania but went with a tour company so again there were others in the group, but no one I knew.

More and more people doing this instead of going with mates. You done it? Sweden, russia, or Belgrade, where would you go?
Going to Canada on my own for a month in a few weeks time, did it back in July, no biggie, I feel comfortable travelling on my own.
 

OOOSH YEAH

Have considered it but I think I’d just end up wondering what I’d done wrong in life that I find myself alone with nobody to share my time with. Travel is better when you can experience it with someone. Obviously everyone won’t feel the same so if you fancy it give it a try.

It's great. First time I did it was to Ukraine/Chernobyl. :lol: So much freedom to pick and choose what you and you alone want to do. I generally stay at hostels in a private room so I still have my privacy but can meet other people if I want. If you're confident in your own company I'd recommend it.
Could think of nothing worse
A fortnight with the bairns in Tenerife in a hotel resort.

People who travel solo don’t necessarily have no one to share it with. They just choose not to.

Some people cant wrap their heads around that mate,my kids are at Uni,my ex-missus moaned if there was no wifi or decent shopping malls,she hated sitting around while I was fishing,she would never have done the trip I did last year trekking in the Himalayas in Nepal,india,and Bhutan ;) spent the day helping do the brickwork on a monastery extension in the himalayas.
