Funny that it never occured to me that singletons, such as myself, were trepidatious about traveling alone. I’ve done it for so many years, that I guess it’s just second nature.
I have no issues with speaking to strangers. I don’t have issues eating alone (if there is no chance of some schmuck from high school recognizing me). I have no issue about drinking too much (obviously). Or making an ass of myself. The thing is, when I travel I am pretty much guaranteed not to know anyone, so I don’t really give a shit what others think of me.
You don’t have to follow anyone else’s agenda, you can do what you want when you want. As long as you are at least slightly responsible and are safe about it, why let the fact that you don’t have anyone to go with stop you from doing the things you want?
Sure, I’ve heard of those that meet ‘the one’ while on vacay. Whatever. I’m calling bullshit. Sure, I’ve met tons of great people while away, but ‘the one’ hell no! Not even close.
Traveling alone is no big feat. Be confident, be safe, have a good time.
Act like an ass. Drink too much. Be an idiot. Who cares? There is no one to bear witness
While I’ve made absolutely no secret about my love of drinking while on vacation, I assume you could try it sober; that thought has just never crossed my mind.
. Live it up, have a blast, and deal with the hangover later. 🙂
You can do it!
