    Like I said in the previous topic, I also plan a solo trip to Eurpoe in 2009. I’m planning for the begining of April. I’m in the same boat as you… no one of my friend are advanturious anough to travel to Europe. I like solo travel anyway.

    Yeah I will be heading over on my own as well but I think it will be better then with friends. Get to meet lots of new ones this way! Going to be doing the winter wanderer starting Nov 1st and then travel Europe for the next couple of months after that.

    I’m going on my own! I was a little worried at first but the travel agent said 60% of people on these tours go alone. I’m going on the European Inspiration October 25th- Nov 14th.

    hey, yep doing the european encounter on nov 8th 2008 by myself, its to hard trying to organise the things you want to do around your friends, meet new ones on tour anyway i think!

    I reckon it would be pretty hard to travel with a friend unless you were really good friends and had very similar interests. I could see alot of friendships being split, particularly on a long tour. and I mean your travelling with 50 other new friends anyway when you go on one of these!

    I am going to be booking the Berlin to Budapest tour in either NOV or DEC. I will be going solo (23 female)From what I’ve read, a lot of people go by themselves. Should be a blast.

    I too am going alone, leaving from the US. I’m doing the London-Paris plus 2 days Paris and then the Winter Wanderer starting the end of December. These forums are a great way to meet people before you go. Everyone I have talked to for my 2 tours seems super nice so I’m really excited!!
