    Holiday on my own

    Has anyone ever travel alone as a single either abroad or in the uk. Since breaking up I fancy going away but not sure what to do or where to go.
    Plus there is the worry and fear of travelling alone and what to do wherever i go.
    Just wondered if anyone else has experienced this and mabye some advice.
    Thanks

    Would love to go away on my own,

    unfortunatly a trip to see my mum in Sheffield is as far as i get......although she pays for travel, food etc-- so is really cheap!!!!

    have looked in to a couple of companys that do single person holidays-- seem to have good reviews-and a couple of friends have reccomeded-- maybe i will save up and one day go!!

    Depends on what you want to do. I've travelled all over the world on my own and enjoyed every moment.
    Have you tried looking at Exodus, Explore or Gap Adventures. They do small group holidays all over the world. They include simple sight seeing trips to quite adventurous activity based trips (I've done allsorts, kayaked across the Greek islands, driven a husky sled through Finland, Whitewater rafted down the Zambezi). Groups are generally around 12 people and are like minded so theres always someone to chat to.
    Might be worth a look....

    Go backpacking in India - I'm off on Sunday for three weeks to Tamil Nadu. Just me. A small rucksack. Cameras. Nothing planned - just making it up when I get there!

    Try Spice (Adventure, Sports, Social Group - Spice - Spice UK National Office), not really a 'singles' club, but not really aimed at couples either! Basically it's an extended social group who organise all sorts of trips. I know a few people who've got a lot out of their trips (marriage included!!).

    Do it!

    There are lots of single traveller websites where you can go on holiday with people in a similar situation or do the opposite and get yourself a travel guide, lonely planet etc, book a flight and off you go.

    I am tempted to do the same this year; I have one week off in middle of August and I'm really thinking life is too short to be sitting around at home.

    I flew to America last year on my own without friends or family for the first time in my life and it was great.

    Did what wanted to do and went where I wanted to.

    If you're social and friendly you will enjoy it and look back with no regrets!

    I spent a year working my way round Australia & NZ just after uni and it was awesome. I worked for about seven months (travelled for 5 months) doing it contract work and dive boats. You'll meet loads of people along the way, plus living for a year on what you can carry on your back teaches you essential packing skills for later life.

    I used to stay at an old hunting lodge guest house on the fringe of the New Forest for a few days or a week at a time, and busy myself pottering about in the forest photographing and reading. Haven't done it in a while now though, probably should some time...

    With breaking up recently i am a little nervous to be honest about going away on my own, and have lost alot of my confidence, so not very social at the moment.

    So not sure to be honest its all new to me. Will have a look, but can anyone point me to any particular companys.

    I'm considering getting a small van that I can kip in and heading over to France. I thought if I found the local swimming baths, I could park up in their carpark overnight and then have a morning swim, use the loo and have a shave and shower. All for the cost of the swim. Would make for a really cheap holiday.

    I done loads of stuff on my own. I find what works best is group holidays with people you don't know More fun.
