the feeling of travel alone is not good

i have been back home yesterday and my own travel was end at the same time. To be honest, it's not good to travel alone.sometimes i felt so lonely;sometimes i extremely wanted to share my feel with somebody,but there was just me. Another problem is that the photoes in my camera are nearly all the scenic and it will left regret to my memory.After all,when i recall this travel in future,i can have a more sweet memory.Although i always comfort myself that what i have seen is much important,i can't change the truth and lie to myself. But i was lucky that i made two new friends on travel. In all,i don't think to go to travel alone is a piece of good thing.

I do not know how the salesman travel all over the places alone. Some of them travel from state to state capitals and even remote vilages. I hate travel if I have to go alone.One cannot socialise with the copassengers for fear of being robbed. I love travel only when I am to accompany either my son or my wife or any of my close friends. Otherwise on some pretext or the other, I postpone the trip.

I love travelling but with someone else, someone who is special to me, a friend, my mom, my son and my boyfriend. I love to share the feeling how do i appreciate the experience of travelling specially to beautiful places of the country. It just makes me bored travelling alone. I better stay at home or nearby instead of travelling if i don't have someone to go with.

I love traveling! I do not often travel alone though because it really is not as fun and lonely. Its always better to have someone with you when traveling as to share the excitement with and have memories with. I would travel more if I could and take as many people with me as I could!

Yes its not really that good to travel alone if you are used to travel with companions. I had experienced travelling alone to KL. I had no one to chat/talk to while on the waiting area and in the plane, except some persons asking for information. During the sight tour of the city, I had to ask other tourist to take pictures of me. It was good that I had met 3 fellow fil women who were also in the city tour, and they invited me to join them in their group and take pictures with them. For one night I stayed in the hotel alone, and I didn't sleep well. Its good that my hubby joined me the following day and night because he just came from his worksite which is 1 hour and 45 minutes flight to KL. Then we flew back to his worksite/ location the following day and I stayed with hubby for a week.

I really love to travel. When I was younger I often went on trips alone. Nowadays I have a family I usually travel with them. Thinking back to the days I traveled on my own I would say it was enjoyable. I was free to choose exactly where, when and for how long I wished to travel. I could stay in backpacker hostels and found these to be friendly places where I met people from many different countries of the world. Sometimes it was challenging and lonely but most of the time it was great. I went alone to the USA, then stopped off at the gorgeous islands of French Polynesia, the Cook Islands and Samoa. I spent most of that trip in New Zealand. I stayed in youth hostels in the USA and New Zealand as well as cheap guest houses in the islands. This was a far cheaper trip even though it lasted a few months than my two week trip to the Seychelles. My boyfriend that I went there with hated cheap guest houses and always wanted luxury hotels. He was scared of insects and some kept him awake all night. We went to a beach that had been named one of the top ten in the world and he didn't like it. On our last few days we nearly fell out. A holiday does not always bring people closer. Maybe I would have had a cheaper and more enjoyable holiday alone than I did with him.

Hi miaolin! Yes, I agree with you travelling alone can be very lonely. It happened to me once, and I have to just admire the places by myself and no one to talk to and tell how beautiful the museum was. And when I want my photot taken, I have to ask another person or tourist to please take my photo. And I end up having photos of the places and the sceneries more. How I wish I could show pictures that have my face on those beautiful sceneries. And now, I would never travel alone. It is best to have someone to share the happiness and excitement with. Take care and have a nice day!
