As the weather warms and thoughts of summer begin to beckon me somewhere...with an "anywhere but here" kind of mentality, I start my annual battle of the mind about traveling alone. It's not insecurity, mind you. I have traveled a lot on business, but that's always a planned destination with purpose. Not much time to wander beyond the absolutes. A couple of my usual travel companions are tied into family jaunts in the next few months so I thought this might be the season I break out, and hopefully break free of "couple mania"... constant reminders of how great it was to travel with THE one I miss! What's worked for some of you? Have you traveled alone to somewhere exciting by yourself? Any suggestions, ideas?

Bravo, Susan!  So glad you took that first step traveling alone.  I am going to do the same in Sept.  Going to MA to visit sisters I have not seen in 17 years.  I am nervous and excited at the same time.  Luckily, I have a long time friend I will be staying with so that should ease the alone time some.

HI Prissy!

   I stayed with very close friends except for that one night in a hotel.. Sarah, Paul's Goddaughter, her Mom was my Maid Of Honor in 1978 and her husband, Rick, Paul's " Navy Buddy" were each other's Best Man at their weddings. ... WOW ! 17 years! A long time! ... It's great that your friends can make things better/easier for you. :-)  Let me know how it goes. :-) 

Warm Regards,
