    just go alone, that way you’ll be forced to make new friends that are already travelling

    Hi Kristin,
    i am heading over next yr prob around June i think, so if you are going then id be happy to make some of the same travel arrangements as you.
    I want to go all round the UK and also do a long contiki, prob 36 days, maybe even the longer one.

    you’ll find that like 75% of your tour group are solo travellers. It’s good fun going alone, you dont have to look after anyone :P

    Hey ya!

    Im planning on going solo next year too.
    My friends are not reliable and im sick of waiting for them to make up their minds so im just going to go
    I will be doing the 37 day European Adventurer probably late June and then plan on sticking around in the UK for a decent amount of time if I manage to pick up a job and do some more traveling later on

    I am totally warming to the idea of initially going on my own, I think you’ll be all good Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Hey! I know that this is several months late, but I’m in your exact shoes. I’m doing the 32 day camping trip departing on July 3rd and I’m going alone which I’m fine with. But I’m DYING to go to Ireland after and it’d be nice if I had someone to go with!

    I’ll be in Ireland for St Patricks day, followed by a contiki tour (winter wanderer – 24 days).
    When next year were you thinking of going?
