Going Holiday Alone?
December 14, 2010 12:05pm CST
Okay, if you see my profile, I have a relationship problem. This made me think if I am single again (which will be very soon), I am going for a holiday at Caribbeans or Maldives...alone! Anyone thought of this before? I was thinking it could be a very good experience and a peaceful holiday. However, it could be very boring as you are alone. What's your take on this?

I never done this, and I would rather call a good friend of mine to go with me. I am sorry to hear that you have a relationship problem, and hope that you will get over it very soon. Me too, I just ended a relationship with someone over 4 years. I wish that I can go with you to Caribbean. I heard that it is a nice place with a lot of beautiful girls touring around that place. So, you might find someone else there. Good Luck!

In my younger days I often traveled alone and really enjoyed this. I found that I met other travelers and made new friends. I have traveled alone in tropical destinations including French Polynesia, the Cook Islands, Samoa, the Maldives and Caye Caulker in Belize. I did find the Maldives beautiful, expensive and a bit boring at times on the resort island with not much to do. I went to St Lucia in the Caribbean with my mom and that is a fantastic destination. Going to the Seychelles with my ex-boyfriend was lovely and it is also a pricey destination. I am sorry to hear about your relationship problem and know traveling is a way you could feel happier.

Carribeans and maldives are both beautiful places to visit or for holidays. I don't mind going tuch places alone because it's simply beautiful and i get to chill out too. Travelling alone is not boring at all because u are free to go anywhere u want, no arguments and having to please their other person. It would be good to find someone of similiar interest, but when it comes to travel, it's best to be alone.

Hi nicregi! I think if you feel like unwinding for a few weeks then it would be a very good idea. If given the finances and opportunity, it's not that bad to give yourself a break and unwind by yourself. If you feel like you're uncomfortable and might sulk if you're alone, then take a good friend or a sibling along with you. Have fun and enjoy your holiday. If you've been tied to someone for a while in a not so good relationship, then it's time to give yourself a nice treat. Good luck and I wish you well. Have fun on your holiday if you do get to go.

I have experienced travelling alone and although it's not a really nice experience you can always try to go on a tour and you will meet some people to talk to and even another solo travelers. You should enjoy this holiday even more by being single and free to do everything you want :)

It wont be boring at all, go on a few trips that the hotel organises and then you will meet loads of people staying in your hotel and will have people to talk to for the rest of your stay. Caribbean is good, lots of things to do there. As long as you have a friendly personality you will have lots of fun there.
