Europe/Greek Islands in Summer 2014

5 Aug 2013 kmcalpine asked


I'm 21 years old and live in Brisbane, Queensland at the moment and am planning on doing a European tour in Summer 2014 (Preferably looking to leave around June/July)

I don't have any friends who are financially able to go around this time or have committed to other travel plans.

I'm really hoping to find someone in the same boat who'd like to travel together, as I'd rather not go alone!

    I am going on the 08/06/14 tour solo & I cant wait to meet new people! I am even celebrating my 30th while away, and I cant wait to celebrate it with all my new friends! All the people I have connected with on Meet Up are all going solo too, so I wouldnt stress at all as so many of us will be in the same boat! (pardon the punn lol)

    I’m travelling solo as well, in the same boat where friends could never commit financially so after putting it off for a long time just decided to go by myself. I’m doing European Explorer leaving June 15th with the greek island option. From Perth, Aus :)

    I’m thinking of going solo on the London to Athens plus 9 day Greek Island Adventurer (departing 7 June 2014) bit nervous to go by myself but it seems like loads of people do it! :) would love to know if anyone else is flying solo on this trip? I’m from Gold Coast Qld :)

    Hey I’m travelling solo for the same reasons I’m from New Zealand and I have booked the London to Athens plus Greek Island adventurer .I have booked for the 1st of June it looks like one of the best tours for the relaxed pace of seeing everything, while it seems it’s for adventurous and it’s great for the party atmosphere
