First solo travel Portland, OR!

Hi everyone! This is going to be my first solo travel and I’m very excited and scared at the same time since I’ve never really done anything like this before. After reading all the different posts about solo travel, I’m finally taking the plunge!

I am planning on going from Jan. 12-14. I’ve been looking up things to do and hiking seems to be very popular. I love being outdoors so hiking would be great. I’m just concerned about how the weather would be. Any sight seeing and museums would also be great.

Any recommendations would be great as far as places to stay, that’s not too pricey but I prefer a hotel, where and what to eat, any must sees, etc. Also if it’s necessary to rent a car or would public transportation be sufficient.

I would appreciate any help! Thanks in advance.

UK guy looking to do a UK solo tour, first ever solo trip so just looking for advice. Intending to do york > edinburgh > lake district (maybe staying at skipton) > maybe one other place. Any suggestions for anywhere to visit, either as the fourth place, or what to do in each place is appreciated

I've always gone on holidays with family, so its not been a fuss, I've thrown a few suggestions as to where to go during the day in, someone else picks and off we trot.

Decided to solo travel, I have a week off in march, though I'm considering moving more time off to that week and making it from saturday > wednesday week and either adding another place in, or just adding a day into each stop.

What I'm looking for is any advice honestly, budgeting (I'm hoping I can stay in a decent hotel/inn type place in each stopover) have a small lunch then a larger meal at a pub or restaurant, going for hotels that have breakfast included. Then the day will just be exploring. Any suggestions for things to see in each place would be lovely. As for the fourth suggestion, don't really mind where, I live in the midlands, about 45 minutes east of birmingham and I'm doing a sort of loop around so far, so as long as its not a huge distance away from my current plan I'd certainly consider adding it into my trip.

Also any budgeting (I'm thinking 150 for fuel as a generous estimate, then 30/40 for food a day, 100 maybe for a hotel a night and then a bit of spending money and other expenses as I travel. Anyone with any insight into really anything related to any of this, please feel free to comment, I've lived in UK all my life, but I've not seen much of it, but the lack of people with me is kinda nerve wracking, despite being from here.

Edit - I do have ideas of my own, there's a small list of places in each area that I'd like to go to but it will give more weighting to certain places if others have been there and can confirm that it's good. I'm not sure if the post breaks the rules, as although its asking for advice on solo travel, its part asking for advice on where to go too, so if needs be I can resubmit it just focused on the solotravel/budget tips instead

London and England for 7 Days...First Time Solo For That Long

I may be the biggest idiot of all time. I just booked a flight in and out of London for a week in April. Alone. As a first time international flight/trip as a woman.

I've only ever travelled to Canada from the US, and never alone. I've gone on solo trips before (to the beach, to neighboring tourist cities), usually no more than 2 days and I generally have my dog with me for companionship. This is truly my first time alone alone.

I just got a bee in my bonnet and said fuck it, you're not getting any younger. Go.

I've always wanted to go to England. I'm making it happen. And I'm scared shitless.

How do I keep myself safe? Am I worrying needlessly? Are the British people friendly? I keep remembering a friend of mine who came back from a solo work trip and said everyone was super mean and passive aggressive and teased her.

Returning home from my first solo trip tomorrow...

And I cannot thank this subreddit enough for providing me with the inspiration and advice I needed to finally take the plunge into solo travel. I saw so many incredible places and met so many amazing people, a bunch of whom I'm sure will be lifelong friends. I'm just so happy it all happened, but it's bittersweet because I wish I could have continued on traveling with them. I already am brainstorming where I want to go next, and I'm starting to reassess my priorities in life in order to make seeing the world more often a reality. So from the bottom of my heart, thanks again.

France and Italy for Carnival and Mardi Gras

I’m thinking of going to France/Italy in February. Anyone have any experience traveling to Venice for Carnival or celebrating Mardi Gras in Paris. Is this a bad time to go? I think I’ll spend more time in Italy traveling to Venice, Florence, Rome, Naples/Pompeii with maybe a day trip to Pisa as well and then heading back to Paris for a few days. Anyone have any advice?

First-time (ever) solo-traveling in Singapore & Thailand!

The title says it all! I'm definitely excited, and want to get some recommendations on my itinerary and things to do! I'm a 26 year-old male and fairly social. I can be flexible on the budget if it makes a difference. I'd prefer to stay in dorms/hostels for the social experience.

I'll be leaving from SFO 1/17 and getting into Singapore 1/18 in the evening at 7pm. I'll have a full day on the 19th and then fly out 11:15am on 1/20 and get into Bangkok around 2pm. Singapore will be easy to plan since it's one day, but I'd love some recommendations on my Thailand plan.

  • 1/18-1/20 I'll be in Singapore
  • 1/20-1/23 I'll be in Bangkok
  • 1/23-1/26 I'll be in Chiang Mai
  • 1/26-1/29 I'll be in Phuket (or another island town?)
  • 1/29-1/30 Return to Bangkok and fly out early on the 30th.

Two things I'd like to do are scuba diving (Island town) and seeing elephants (Chiang Mai).

Do the dates for each city seem good? Should I spend more or less time in either of the cities? Should Phuket be my island destination?

Any input would be greatly appreciated! After booking the flights I had some regret that I didn't book a longer trip, so I'm talking with Singapore Airlines to see if it would be possible to extend my departure until 2/1.

Just scared right now

I'm 19, currently in Argentina to do volunteer work. For context; I have social anxiety. I just graduated high school and wanted to try something like this, while doing what I love. But ever since I stepped foot into the airport, i just feel like breaking down every time I look around me.

I'm just so scared. I didn't think I would be, or miss my family, but I do and I really am lost without them. Everywhere I go people stare at me-- it's bad enough when they do it back home and it affects me, but here in a foreign country, I feel like I'm their enemy or something. My Spanish... just doesn't exist. Me and other volunteers were told we didn't have to learn much beyond some words, so I followed that. But when I got here I was the only one unable to hold a small conversation.

And on that, I tried to join a gym in two different areas - one of them, the guy at the counter pretty much said no, no when I simply asked what one session cost (in Spanish), and the other... everyone inside just stopped what they were doing and stared me right back out the door. The gym is one thing I want to do while I'm here, the one thing that might make me OK. But I don't know what to do.

That just about goes for everything. I feel unwanted here... on top of my anxious desires to go home and go back to my comfort zone. Again, I'm just scared. There really is no other word to describe it. I'm just scared, and I don't know how much longer I can take it.
