    I'm fine during the day but once it turns dark I'm a nightmare, I stay in hotels on my own sometimes. Freaks me out a little lol

    Don't see why it wouldn't be fun! Where were you thinking?

    there are plenty of pro's and cons to this idea isn't there!

    Fell out with someone a few days in one holiday once and spent rest of the week on my own, had an amazing time. Although I was fearless back then, not sure if Id be the same now:)

    Definate pro is that you get to do exactly what you want, but there's no doubt that great memories are always formed with those close to you. I wouldn't rule it out and if you do an activitiy type holiday, who's to say you won't meet like minded people and make new friends.

    lol chill

    I admire anyone that can go abroad by themselves... I know I couldn't do it myself. Just be careful, read up about the place and be "streetwise". Remember when socialising abroad thats it's not always a good idea to tell everyone that your by yourself. Just use judgement but above all have fun :thumbsup:

    Probably safer than London

    When me and a mate were on an 18-30 holiday in gran canaria we met a dude who was on his own, he was having a whale of a time, using the Im on my own sob story to all the women lol.
    It worked well for him. :thumbsup:

    been a few places, you can do what you want, go where you want, you wont have to comprimise anything as your by yourself and you can be totally selfish and have a great time, dont be intimidated just do your research first

    Never been - but was recommended to me

    I booked a holiday for myself years ago.

    By the time I went though I had 2 tag alongs - girls I'd not really known, but that had also become recently single - so we all went and had a blinding time!

    I'd say go for it - make it what you want

    I went to Australia a ferw yrs ago on my own. I did Sydney for a Fortnight alone and then flew over to stay with my cousin in Perth, they were working all the time so i spent the time alone, only returning back to the house is when i would see them.

    I loved every minute of it, doing what i wanted when i wanted. If i wanted a pint i'd have a pint, if i wanted to sunbathe i'd sunbathe.,

    The only bad time was the flight to Oz, i was so tired and exhausted that when i was about half way there i decided i was coming home,i mean landing and heading straight for departures and getting a flight out of there,, i dont think i was thinking straight, but once i landed it all lifted and i loved every bit of it

    where you thinking of going and what you thinking of doing?

    I have been on a holiday by myself, but unfortunately there were other people there when I arrived.

    Haha!

    i went away on my own for 6 weeks around laos cambodia and thailand, best experience i ever had, got in with lots of different people too, but think you have to be an outgoing person.

    I could only dream of going on holiday alone, gotta few years left of this motherhood lark to get over first tho',lol:p

    Go on holiday alone 5 or 6 times per year. Nobody else to answer to - go for it :thumbsup:

    Where are you thinking of going ? maybe i have been & can offer some advice

    Don't!
    It's lonely out there.

    I went to a few places before i was married etc on my own..........always fine. Find the nearest pub and join in. :thumbsup:

    Toured round Malaysia & Thailand on my own for 6 months and the amount of single travellers you meet is amazing, also travelled europe alone and made a mountain of friends in the process, go for it, it may be scary to start off with but its worth it
